It does not seem to want to stop raining at the moment. More than most years. I dont mind riding in the rain, indeed I like the extra concentration required but it means I cant use the bike for work because to arrive at work soaking is not ideal. Still the pause has allowed to attend to one or two things on the bike. It was at the mechanics today because there was a slight hesitation when opening the throttle and a slight stuttering when on a constant throttle, only small issues but I am always tend to want the bike to be as near perfect as possible. Anyway, after tinkling with the carbs and making some slight adjustment it now runs perfectly. I will be changing the wheel and head bearings in the near future but not critical. Just sitting and watching the weather forecasts looking for a break in the rain.
