Parcels!

I had rather an exciting day today - I had three parcels delivered to work!  First was a Haynes Book of Lies for the XL185, brand new from ebay.  Then came a parcel of bits from Wemoto - steering head bearings, fork seals, handlebar grips and a new brake lever for the XBR (plus a free keyring!).  Finally was a pair of Avon Roadrider tyres from M&P for the XBR - they look rather sexy and I'm looking forward to trying them out.  I think they'll be a lot more confidence inspiring than the horrible Continental and Metzeler combination it has on now.  I should now be able to get the XBR to an MOTable state over the weekend and book it in for MOT next week.  Then it will probably rain constantly for the next six months...............

  1. Just a thought, any tires you pull off that are'nt sporty enough, might be just the thing for someone to run on a sidecar rig where you are less concerned about lean angle. Hairy Larry

  3. Oh poo! The rain has started already.

    Not loads of wear on the tyres but I might offer them free to collector. Failing that I'll save them to plant veggies in in the garden!
