    Even better, I started it and it made broom broom noises for me :crazy

    Couple more weeks, but its need roadworthy/changeover + rego so I've got something to keep me occupied. If it was registered I'd take it for a quick blat but un-licenced + no rego is completely out of the question.

    Will do :thumbsup:

    I will take you up on that .

    Swim ride is a maybe at this stage, I'm way to un-organised to plan something 3 weeks away :phone

    Heck yes I will be. Wont be going on the track in its current setup so it might take me a couple of months to get it ready.

    Whats even better is the tyres on it are almost brand new. They have chicken strips on them about 2" wide. I shall soon fix that up :cool

    I think I broke the CBR's heart when I rolled it off the trailer. I'll have that thing running again soon, too many good memory's on it to leave it in its current state.

    And after a bit of farting around I got the stock can back on. Sounds so much worse with it on. As soon as it goes past the RTA check OMRAE pipe will be straight back on :rockon
