If you can afford it fella you can never change the lube and filters often enough. Well done, a bit OCD for me though. ;)

Your 100% right about not much going on over here...Living in this island is getting boring as hell...

Took the bike for a spin around the island yesterday afternoon for the first time this year and just got struck behind a car/bus/lorry/etc all doing a  top speed of around 20 to 25mph all the way around   :wall
Now I remember why I almost completely given up riding over here.. :'(
