 :smoke: rebuilt rear brake master cylinder new parts and stripped rear brake caliper down new seals pistons were spot on like new still and bleed them and ten times better then it was so good cleaning and checking does work and you have to keep on top of things even the fronts are good if you keep on top of them .

i live up near peterhead
but down in the boarders near bigger  at a rally

:cheers:


i sure did for banking duties i was the chairman of the f.b.p.e.c.s.




Did you used to be a member of the fat bastard pie eating club (or something along those lines)?

In that case, we have met, about 20 years ago.  I was in the RAF stationed at Buchan and used to ride out with the Buchan riders, I had a 94 Triumph Trident.

fantastic that we meet here again then good times back then
hopefully that wont be the last time we get to meet .

200 miles today on a brace of 14's back from the rally
emma got a long distance award.
its rained for all the 200 miles today very wet   but the gear seamed to handle it ok .

Went out for a 160 mile spin around Kent and East Sussex, out through Dartford Tunnel, country roads down to Beachy Head, along through Eastbourne towards Hastings and then home. Cold and drizzly all day. Bike (and rider LOL) is absolutely minging. Will get cleaned tomorrow, should take me....ooh 30 mins back to immaculate. But I'll take a picture first and post up here, just a little too dark now
Nothing to do.............all day to do it....I love retirement :lol:
