Hello all.

As one of the SSOD recovery team may I put forward a couple of theorys.

Another idea is that...

Thanks, yeah- it's only a bit of light hearted fun.

Don't worry, I'll get loads of pics and hopefully some video too.

It's a great excuse for a weekend of beer and fireside bullshit.

Thanks for posting that thisflatearth.

The pic of the stripped down front end is food for thought, it'd be great to have a really stripped down Uly one day.

Don't think it's too bad in the UK.

I recently heard that Belgian fuel is dodgy, just out of interest.

I normally use standard 95ron fuel but put super 97ron in if I know I'll be doing lots of slow, traffic riding.
