Yes!! Did it for the first time since dropping the bike.

Big sigh of relief. Had to fill the bike up today, the first time since dropping the bike in the petrol station a few weeks ago. It couldn't have been worse conditions either today, the floor was covered in diesel, there was nowhere that was clear of it. That made me even more nervous.

Well, I am pleased to say, all went well. I now have a full tank and can put off going again for a while :smile

Hope everyone has managed to get out for a spin today, the weather has been beautiful.

Happy riding all :biggrin:

Going for a spin at the garage

What happened? Did you make a good job of it and slide into the cut flowers and charcoal bags engulfed in a ball of orange flame?:wink:

Lol & think it is a woman thing!

Lol Muncemeister, very good :smile

I am still getting used to this bike and going from a 125 to this just takes a bit of adjusting to - I obviously hadn't adjusted my braking and did the stupid thing of using front brake when almost stopped and wheel was slightly off centre line so bike started toppling over and I am just not strong enough to hold it. I now make sure don't touch front break and keep wheel dead straight when coming to final stop. (Fingers crossed I keep getting it right!!)

Aehewitt, I think the thinking thing is a woman thing, I have a friend who is exactly the same - we like to analyse things too much!! I will take the advice and not think (worry) so much!

Enjoy your ride out, another good day for it :biggrin::biggrin:
