I, unusually for me, went for a ride today. I stayed dry for most of it but got caught in a massive downpour just as my 14 ticked over 134k, it didn't last long though so I got home almost dry.

I also got home itching like hell, turns out I had a t-shirt full of thunder flies! bloody things.

It's great , first impressions after short ride with lots of hard braking are , the lever feels softer and hence there's more feedback, travel is the same at standstill but on the road requires far less effort to achieve the same braking distances, I'm guilty of being a hard on the brakes kinda guy, and i am quietly confident the gsx will slip past a few sports bikes on the brakes when i do a track day next week  :onya:

Replaced rear tire - new Michelin Road
This time I went for 50 profile, insetaed of 55 I had always before. Want to give a try - 50 is more flat, and I wonder how it will wear over the time.

Ride ~120km - feels OK. because it's new, wasn't leaning to deep, but I did not notice any major performance differences regarding 55 profile.

Front tire, will replaced also, but it take me so much time and sweat to replace rear tire, so I decided to do it another day.

there is how rear Michelin Pilot Road 4 looks like after 16249km:

I'm do not know, when I will start it... Not putting question if I start it... Yet 🙂
I investigate a little, an find out there is nobody in my country, who could big-bore and sleeve cylinder block. Meaning, I would need to order this work from Sweden or Filnland. And those countries ain't cheap...
So, I haven't decided what to do yet.

And also - I'm lazy 🙂
Hardest thing is to START!
