Another visit to www.textisbeautiful.net, this time with the complete lyrics from Dark Side of the Moon (including the spoken parts):
My Tiger has just passed 30k miles and to be frank, the rear suspension is shagged. It bounces over bumps and if/when you hit the second bump whilst cranked over in a bend, you’d better have some spare trousers in your pack!
One of the guys on www.tiger1050.com had moved on (up?) to a Ducati and was offering his 10k mile WP rear shock absorber for £350. He worked in London so we met at Euston and I brought home my new rear shock and looked forward to the next 10k miles (before, presumably, a rebuild would be in order…)
Someone told me once that new bikes have to be designed to cope with two 20 stone people so no wonder they are oversprung. Not sure about 40 stone (that’s 254 Kg or 560 lbs depending upon where you are), but it sure looks over-engineered.
Road test to follow.
Ever since fitting the Campbell Custom Sidewinder exhaust on my bike nearly 18 months ago, I have been on the lookout for one of these. The Campbell is just too noisy…
I like the low slung design and assumed that the single can (as opposed to the twin “cans” of the Campbell) would give a deeper tone and still sound brilliant.
They have shown up on eBay every now and then but finally found this one.
It doesn’t come with a centre-stand stop so I had to make my own from an old aluminium window fitting. I’ll keep a lookout for a linkpipe that includes the required small metal fitting. I asked Remus and they offered me a new one from stock (a mere £82 + shipping…)
Found just the link pipe with the centre-stand stop for £30 (BNWB) so bought it.
Now fitted and have removed the old aluminium window latch that I used to stop the stand hitting the chain.
This is/was outside Don Beni’s in Denmark Street Wokingham on Friday afternoon. (originally published in October 2012)
Update: More typos!
Update: Not sure about this one…
It could be done on purpose. Obviously a better class of signwriter in Marlow.
