I hope it is, it's a virtually new Road 5 GT.

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

Put new grips on the KX450F, changed the Oil & Filter which i do after every 3 rides.
New chain has lasted 3 meetings it stretches chains like they are plasticine so will buy another today and fit it later
I am finding MX maintenance much more involved than a road bike

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

Moved the bikes around and put the MV at the back of the garage. Then threw a cover over it. I can't see me riding it again until spring. I might get it out before the salt hits the road.

Re: MV demo day
