Just have to get it MOT’d then I can get back out on it.



When do you reckon you'll be back on the road?


I can ride now, ive been on the Supermoto a couple of times but im respraying the panels on that at the minute so im bikeless at the minute until the 999 is Mot'd.

Bike looks stunning BTW. The 999 is one of my all-time favourite bikes.

Stuck it on a ferry back to England, then rode it like I stole it all the way home (devil)

Got home and cleaned it, checked the tyre pressures, cleaned, lubed, and adjusted the chain. All set for the daily grind.

Re-fitted the front mud guard, it's a 2 piece and the oem bolts had rusted into the rubber/brass well nuts so I ordered black stainless bolts which I thought came with the well nuts. Wrong. So I had to wait for some of those to arrive.

Then I was going for a ride, but as soon as I started getting changed a black cloud dumped it's guts all over... Testing refurbished brakes in the wet didn't seem a good idea.

Gave it a snow foam wash before i went out this morning.

Probably still needs another wash and also some tar spots to remove from the road resurfacing we rode through in France. And when i say we rode through it, we literally did ride over freshly laid tarmac.

Put the re sprayed panels back on the Supermoto, just need the seat back now and I’ll be good to go.

Given the vfr the day off, it's had a very hard week...

Now looking at touring/adventure style bikes. Mrs Nutz agreed that it was a waste having a bike that rarely gets used and having a newer bike that could do the job of both commuting and fun would make more sense.

I see that as a green light to go bike shopping.
