Hi Josiah. That's good to hear, that was a great ride and unforgettable; can't believe it was really 5 years ago!
My only question is 'what happened to my invite', assume it got lost in the post?!
P.S. still have the mk1 biffer but hardly ever ride it these days...

Hello

Re did most of the White Horses yesterday Thursday 29/7/2021, had to miss out the Broad town and Hackpen Hill ones, but it was a good ride, the surprise was the Pewsey horse was well defined while the Devises horse was loosing it's definition. The Westbury hose was being cleaned by people roped up.

Exhaust System / Re: Slip on exhaust Canada availability

I was having the same issue. I'm in Halifax and there's not much for anything in Canada online regarding this bike. As far as exhausts go, I found this site https://www.blackwidowexhausts.co.uk/cbf-1000-613-c.asp in the UK which is reasonably priced. I been hearing good things about this brand so I bought myself a black painted can with chrome tip for $280 shipped for a 2012 mk2.

Hi Josiah,
I reckon this site is far better than my BMW site, and I still post more frequently on this site. Strangely I post most often on the Honda 700 site which has a great mixture of 'mature'  :164: riders and lots of first time riders. Some of the expertise coming from  ex racing riders and others means we have some fascinating threads. I only joined when I was thinking it might be a replacement for my Biffer but decided against it. However they put up with me! I think there are almost as many 'non-owners' as owners so it is a great mix.

Have a Koffee on me..... :038:

Hello Ken, I shall hold you to that koffy and you know it. I wonder if Hagar will still post, I think I shall start posting again. I'm hoping to get out tomorrow with an ex school friend and also ex cbf rider. We are planning to do the white horse run or a part of it. Mine and Dunelm's tour for last year got cancelled, but here's to next year when we hope to get up your way and you buy the koffy  :046: :001: :031:

Stay well, stay safe

There's a pattern building up here.

That lost bolt can't have gone far and you should really make the effort to find it.

Clearly with the fan coming on whenever you stop for around 20 or 30 seconds there is a fault. The engine is overheating and that is not going to fix itself, if ignored at best it will lead to premature engine wear, at worse a seized engine. If you took it into a workshop the things I mention above are the very things they would work through to identify the fault regardless of age, history or mileage. Why should that diagnostic process be any different for the home mechanic?

Thanks, Art.
Regarding the bolt, I hunted it until my knuckles were raw and expecting a knock on the garage door from Mr Plod due to my choice language.  I can't do anymore so it stays there or it falls out
I shall find a way of testing the other issues though need to give the bike a test run after my "fettling" first.
No doubt, I shall report back.
