    With today's fuel prices in Europe you must spend a fortune on fuel. I suppose you do those trips for work? Does your employer compensate your fuel cost somehow? I did about 160 km every day for about a year while I worked an intern job and while I didn't mind the rides, the fuel cost per month really bugged me.

    Oh yes petrol costs are not something that I like having to pay.
    As for employer compensation, yes, but since I employ myself through my own company I end up compensating myself, naturally at the Revenue approved rates ............. but then my company doesn't make so much profit so 'I' pay less Corporation Tax! Rough calc says the Tax Man makes a 20% contribution.

    Re: What have you done to your bird lately?

    Where to start and with which bike? (I could be here all night!)

    In short the most recent activity on 2 out of 3 .....

    Black BB:
    1. Stripped off damaged parts (Plastics, sub frame, fairing stay, snapped clutch lever, stator cover (holed), chipped R/R)
    2. Fitted refreshed spare subframe.
    3. Fitted refurbished (Jaws) stator cover with new stator. Including new stainless hex head bolts.
    4. Re-tapped damaged engine mounting point and fitted new high tensile steel bolt. (Never use those R&G style crash bungs unless you want a world of pain after a spill!)
    5. Ordered some expensive new parts .. front fairing stay and front fairing

    Red BB:
    1. New chain and sprockets.
    2. New complete charging system and battery
    3. Brakes serviced and parts replaced where needed (still need front discs ....)
    4. Replaced dodgy screen with a slightly better dodgy screen
    5. New later version FPR (slightly higher pressure) .. still gets sooty exhausts though ...
    6. Wheel bearings.
    7. Added various missing bolts and pop clips.
    8. Headstock bearings.
    9. Added new fork oil and ohlins springs ... feels good

    There is a lot more but 1 I can't remember it all and 2 you'd get bored

    hey, Chris, A-Jacket working out. Went with the Dave's peg pieces. Sorting out windscreen options as the double bubble creates turbulance. What screen is your and hows the wind at the shoulders. Its a good looking screen. Look forward to checking your favorite ride to St Helens some time soon. And Rainier when thaws.

    Re: What have you done to your bird lately?

    Mine has the clock issue too - though only loses about 15-20 mins a week. It seems to change dep how fast I ride so I figue it's a relativity thing -- time slows down the faster you go!!!
    900 mi out to Ohio and back at warp speed and the clock is right on!!!

    They got some ferocious bugs out in Pa so; rode in the rain today again -- all clean! (sorta)

    Put the Jaws mirror extenders on a while ago and they're worth every penny!

    Now if I can only get more than 40mpg....

    Fixed a main beam issue where the multiplug (FI only) at the front of the loom had a single corroded connection, just snipped the wires either side of the plug and joined together with a new piece of wire .... good as new

    Re: What have you done to your bird lately?

    Added a Corbin gunfighter seat I picked up on the weekend.
