Very few bikes seem to have good rear brakes - thats a novelty then too.

I think the phrase "rear brake" is banned in the MV forum. It was pretty much non existent on the F3

My multi suffers the same. I put a bleed nipple I place of a banjo bolt on the output from the rear ABS unit and pressure bled it from the caliper back. Lasts about 2-3000 km and then is shit again. I’m sure the ABS circuit introduces air somewhere

And that is the simple solution. A simple single circuit system of master and slave and an experienced foot.

The only bike I've ever ridden that had a decent rear brake was the HD Sportster that I had..... that one worked surprisingly well.
All-in-all a pretty good thing, as the front brake required a decent effort, and a lot of optimism.

The bike is in Birmingham and they're fitting the alarm today. So it's ready to be mine from Tuesday.

Call in from DMC. They've not got any delivery slots and/or a driver until Friday. I can pick the bike up before then.

I'm working all week and Sam is working all week, which means I can't get out and even if I could I've not got a lift, so I'll let them bring it to me.

That's a pain.

I've got my fingers crossed for a long hot summer, hopefully one this weekends over

Change of plan. They're moving some stock tomorrow, so do I want my bike dropped off before the van heads off to London?

Yes. Yes I do.

In some sort of cruel April fool's joke the van has had to go straight down to London (gah)

I'm working today so it doesn't make any difference but still, I want my bike!
