Comfort....Finally time for the Comet, nothing more needed than adjusting tyre pressure. Started easily as usual and rode a few miles. The most comfortable bike I have.
Had been busy starting up the Manx, the Ninja, the WD16H, the B40WD, the B44VS and the RG racer.
All now ready for road or track.
Sunny and quite warm so will take out the Comet for some more miles instead of servicing the Venom.
Some sunny days I wonder if I spend too much time working on the bikes instead of riding them.
I had to change 3 standard bars for Norton Commando ones.A short ride but I think I have cracked it! I used a set of alloy bars from a TY175 we had when Ben was starting out in schoolboy trials with a bit of black paint they approximate touring bars(and save weight!) I will get full feed back after I go on a wrinklies run later in the week, but I think its worth putting a few inches of wiring in the dip switch lead to place it above the little "valve lifter" lever.
There must be a lot of guys thinking their bikes are getting too big, too uncomfortable and have imprecise steering perhaps they should get a life behind bars !
As usual apologies for the red hand grips and the Grey (flash) speedo
