    A Bikers Work is never done; or is it?

    Having ridden Harley's for many years there was a saying that fettling your bike was never done.

    I bought my 2016 Black TTSE at the end of May this year and wrote a list of 'farkles' and changes I wanted or more accurately needed.  I just finished the last piece of the jigsaw.

    I now have 7,000 miles on it and the tyres were getting a bit square and I had some off the bike time so I bought two new Michellin PR4 GT's at 197.68 and got Barkers my local MOT bike station and general bike shop strip out the wheels and then took the rims to BettaBlast, http://www.bettablast.co.uk/home.html Tyne and Wear where they powder coated the rims in gloss black in a couple of days at 104 the pair.  Back to Barkers to put all the bits back on and the new rubber 30, bargain.  I also replaced the rear brake pads.

    I attach a couple of pictures of the wheels and a link to the video I made of the farkles before the wheels were done:

    but otherwise - Very nice Dave, Very nice !   :047:

    We knew there was a good reason!  Color coordination!  Same reason I have some different shades of blue wicking type workout shirts to wear under my mesh jacket.  Keeps me cooler and looks cool too.  That is if an old geezer like me can even approach looking cool. :745:  Lookin' good Dave.
