    Enjoyable read Koro. What milage did you get out of those tyres in total ? I am sitting at almost 14,500 on the tyres that I used on the TT 2000 a set of Pilot Road 2's
    Cheers Jim

    Just found this working steam powered bike. Someone built it from scratch in nz, thought it kinda had a Steampunk flavour about it

    Thanks, I think I clean mine more than I ride it at the moment, always happy to learn a thing or two

    If your using wax, make sure nothing gets onto the brake pads and discs (or at least be careful with the brakes until you wear the product back off them).

    I use a bit of kerosene on a rag for the rims if they are really dirty, but usually soapy water is fine. Some people like using Dynamo (from your supermarket, washing powder).

    Personally, I don't like using anything other than soapy water to clean the bike. So many of the chemical products make something look good, and then you find they have some negative impact on using the bike. It's just not worth the risk for me.

    Good to hear the battery worked great.
    It is actually a LiFePO4 A123 battery. The LiFePO4 is short for Lithium Ferrous Polymer.
    I'm interested to find out how long that battery will last before it goes flat on your bike when you get the chance.

    Brilliant! The tank looks great to.
    An old ships light for the rear and your good to go, almost?

    Use grip glue

    Means the grips are removable.

    I wonder if Oxford might have been better of to make the cut off voltage adjustable. Seems to effect people differently. Some get left with a bike that can't start, and others have them turn off at red lights.

    Don't need those - got a roomful of speakers in the lounge, some in the dining room, another stereo in our bedroom, and a couple in the basement, so all we're shopping for is a decent MP3 player. Don't think we'll go Apple though - Gadget Steve at work and Pudding Pimp at home have put me off, despite my in-laws' total buy-in with multiple ipods in their family.

    I usually prefer the grips to be wired through the ignition but was advised not to bother this time.
    It doesn't seem a problem, if I stop at a red light the grips switch off. Which does seem to be over egging the pudding a bit???

    Good luck for a speedy recovery.

    The MP3 players just keep getting better. My new Nano is a fraction of the size of my old iPod but it has the same storage plus a colour screen and a video camera. All for a bit over half the price.
