Fitted a pair of sport touring tyres a few days ago ( Metzeler Sportec 01’s ) myself for the first time. Something I will now be doing from now on, as it was not a difficult as I thought.
Put back on the standard mirrors on as the Rizoma mirrors are no good for the higher seat, +air hawk I have, even with mirror extensions.
Now preparing the bike and my gear for next weekends departure and a tour of Spain, via Plymouth to Santander ferry. Minimal luggage, just a large’ish tail bag. (Same as KTM rear bag).
Bike is going well, and no problems to date. Except a very slight weep from the from brake reservoir. I will thread lock the screws as they did need a little tightening again. Chain adjusted, for the first time after tyre change. Not difficult if you follow the manual instructions.
Did a 215 mile ride out out to scrub the new tyres in. It’s been great riding weather here this week. Next ride will be off to Spain, even though it’s been hotter here this week.
Looking forward to some great motorcycling roads.
