Mine's OK too.

50 mph gale drying out the torrential rain.
Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?

Rain not got here yet MY.
Just taken my DRZ for a short blast to check out the brakes since servicing them, plus check out the new chain and sprockets. Gone even bigger on the rear this time, 2 links longer on the chain because of the rear and so the adjuster is near fully out now.
Seems ok though and I think it can wheelie in neutral now.

Billy - I go the other way, I try to keep the air from getting into the garage as the air is warm and laiden with humidity. Will paying for a place at Llandow help with this?

My winter prep is to give the bike a good clean and oil Doris in all the right places, make sure the bike is up on stands so the tyres are not in the same spot on the floor, make sure the battery is connected to an optimiser and is started and run for at least 10-15 minutes till it comes up to temp.

Bike is kept in a single skin garage with about inch and half cap under door, so garage regulates temp well I guess never has an issue with Doris have issues with rusting or missing a beat when starting.
Electronic's keeps the boys upright, the men keep it on the knee slider :)
