Love a good money shot!

Strong cleaning solution on the chain
Tar remover on the wheels
Citrus pre wash everywhere
Snow foam everywhere
All purpose cleaner on the seats
Shampoo everywhere
Rinsed
Dried.

Time for a brew and I'll polish it another time.

Took the cover off, pushed it round in a circle so it's not on the same pressure points for the tyres and bearings. Then started it to move the fluids round.

It makes a lovely pop in dynamic pro, even with s standard can. Not sure anyone is having a lie in now

If my surgery is hugely delayed I'll be able to join my mates in November. I can keep you posted and let you know the date for rebooking if you like? Otherwise I'll be doing a bunch of UK days and it would be good to meet on circuit

Nice.. If I just do UK I'm hoping to do a couple of new to me circuits including: Snetterton, Cadwell, Oulton, Anglesey and Bedford. If a good date comes up for Donington then I would definitely do that again!

Fitted the new fairings on the 999 gave it a clean and gave the Dorsoduro a wipe over.
