    Agreed, I am on the look out for a plain red one like the early Strada.

    All I have done so far is ride it, clean it and fitted some carbon heel plates from RSRMoto:



    It was then that I noticed the headers needed a clean ...... out with the wire wood and Autosol:

    I will re-do them at a later date. I love this bike.

    Carole Nash, but I have been with them for ages and not had to claim yet (touch wood it continues). This includes one standard bike (916) and two heavily modified ones.

    After a few (500) miles on the old tyres (rear 10 years/front 11 years) I decided to change them. I also went from a 180 rear to a 190.

    The old ones:

    The new ones:

    Some lovely sticky Metzeler Racetec RR's to replace the solid out of date tyres.

    Just as well on the belts:

    Then it was off for a blast out:

    And then back home after a 500 mile plus journey:

    I decided to get my spare 916 shock a refresh, it was looking extremely battered and had no paint on the spring. So I got Teut at TW Suspension Tech to give it a quick going over.

    Happy with the end results, not as blingy as the 888 shock full rebuild redcoat that he did for me but still a vast improvement on what it looked like.
