    The STrumpet is back - with a new second gear!

    Oh yes! After a four week wait on getting a fix for the explosion that occurred when I blasted through 2nd gear, I've got the bike back with a new 2nd and 6th sprocket.

    I love it!

    And this morning in the dark I only needed one pannier which I somehow managed to attach to the Wrong Side and it didn't fall off! :-)

    This is the best bike I've owned. Beats K13S, K12LT, Tiger, KTM, Busa, ZZR14 etc etc

    With Herr Keis' heated clothing, Radio 4 Today programme* blasting out and empty A-Roads for my 6am commute in Gloucestershire I'm in biking heaven. And this website has been a big part of getting me here with help and reviews etc.

    Tally ho!

    *For US readers, BBC Radio 4 is a radical national station with strong views on the various iniquities of playing croquet before breakfast and Political Celebrities' Favourite Spoons.

    For me, it was trying to fathom out how you could listen to radio 4!!

    It wasnít difficult to attach it (in the dark) but getting it off was harder because the key had to go behind the grab rail, lift the pannier up to get the key in then unlock and bend the key to get it out from under the grab rail  :033:

    Iíd do it again to demo with a photo but bent keys arenít great

    Welcome and a virtual pint on me.  :821:
    My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

     :400: from WI. The 6am commute is hard to fathom for me.  I hope you are enjoying the ride.  :821:
