Default Finally on the road again.

First very short test ride on my Honda VT700 yesterday..Slight coolant leak..top radiator hose clip loose..horn mount loose..radiator fan not coming on ..Tightened hose clip, tightened horn mount, fitted handlebar fan switch..

This is the first bike I have ridden with forward controls, it feels as if the front wheel isn't touching the road, and my feet don't feel like they are in the right place, also after the Vmax it feels like a toy bike..To be honest I feel a twat getting dressed in a leather jacket and wearing a helmet, boots and gloves.

If it survives the 25th ride out it will probably do for the round the coast ride, I've done enough work on it.

Oh and the cheapo waterproof GPS works well.
