Happy to report that the Swingarm is fitted along with new arm bearings wheel bearings and new tyre oil and filters changed and it has got its new mot ( roadworthy test that all bikes and cars have to have over here every year after they become three years old ) so bike is all ready to go but still needs taxing and that runs monthly so am waiting to put it back on the road from the first of May , the little Stinker the DT is still on the road so am not bike less , had a bit of a shock with the insurance , , it is due for renewal tomorrow and I had not had a reminder so rang them on Monday and they told me they had sent me a letter at the end of last month ( which I never received ) telling me that they could no longer cover me when I asked why the told me that the underwriters had altered their cover and would not cover my bike as it was fitted with more than a hundred pounds worth of accessories, a tank bag and a topbox , mmmm so it was on to the new second hand wap top and troll the net for cover after a couple of hrs I found one £50 cheaper than last year for better cover , so up theirs so am about ready for the pilgrimage to the IOM , but still to do before then is a three day BSB meeting at Oulton Park a great circuit I think , then the British round of the WSB at Donnington   so a busy few weeks coming up

Sounds great. I'd like a few nice bike trips to look forward to right now.

Yeah, I know all about MOT and tax disks for odd reasons. MOT from watching British TV, particularly "Wheeler Dealers". Tax disks due to a trip to the IOM on a rental where they did not put the latest disk (which they had purchased) on the bike before I left.

They were doing an over-the-top police check outside of the ferry lot, and I almost missed the TT! Thank goodness a helpful Brit with a mobile phone (Bill at Biketours UK) was with me and got it sorted (with an 80 pound fine to the bike dealer).
