    Was about to ask how you made a mess doing an oil change, then saw the screwdriver through the filter. Bugger, sucks when you have to do that.

    New clutch and cover look fantastic though!

    Ive only done the track on the old monster, but im sure that the 848 is way more suited for that type of riding than the monster. I think the Cal Schools rent the BMW's out at like $5-600 a go or something like that?

    You probably wont get as much out of lvl 1 as I did, but from more experienced riders ive spoken too, they still got good value out of them! And id love to do PI... maybe once i get the CBR up and running ;)

    Couple of Pics i took after getting the bike detailed by Guns and Hoses in Erindale for the AutoItalia event. (Cant speak highly enough of that place)

    @zooker I even included a rare picture of the LHS :10.gif:


    Im going to be fitting a steering dampner this week from a 1098 SF, hopefully that will go well :17.gif:
