Today was a very special, albeit sad day.   Fred, a very active member in the Dutch VFR Club Nederland had passed away following a mc accident before Easter. He never woke up from the coma.

Not sure, but saw his daughter Candy.   If there ever was an apt name for a female....       Speaking of raw, utter sexiness.............................      

And it must be contagious.......  Thank you Keny!!!     Went to look at 2 today, 1st one was grotty beyond belief so I didnot even make an offer   The other one was the other side

RaceBolt, too, I think.  I have some that are more of an OEM-type flush-fit without the safety wire drillings.

 

Ciao,

So this bolt I will likely replase on my RC24 as well, and its actually the same part as on your SP2!

Looks good on the top pic, not sure about the tension, but the twists per inch look consistent, and it has been done on the correct direction. For the caliper bolts though, I can;t really tell how many twists per inch, almost looks like it isn't. Should be right around 6-8 full twists per inch. It could be correct, and the angle could be deceiving. Overall, I give you a solid B+. If I was able to tell the tension, that could raise you a full letter grade. It would most definitely pass track scrutineering though, so yeah, you did good!!!

One of redsluts handbags got a new lease of life.... For instance my camping weekend this month to WSBK Assen.

Your SP is becoming a Practical sports bike! Just like a VFR! :fing02:

 

But pour some of the bottles in a glass for today!

Dude, with that trunk, the way you have it set up.... It looks like you don't want to have that trunk to be part of your bike..

 

We need to talk dude.. Seems like the Baltic experience has done some brain damage...

No worries, the pizza box will be used on very rare, specific occasions....

I had it lying around in excess so better use it no?

I could move the base plate forward/over the seat hump, but that would look silly (too)...

It's just like a womans clothes, - very difficult to find something that fits and looks good.    -     without laces ,

but I like your colour matching tank bra.
