I went on holiday to France on 2nd September on the very trusty K100RT. It got new BT45 tyres the day before as well as brake bleed and some new pads. Took me 450 miles from Roscoff to St Leon in the one day.

Not long after I went Will aka 88 here, who was supposed to come along too, sent me a message that Fintan, aka Corkboy here, was selling his K1100LT.

Bugger, I thought, that's a nice one and shame I am away.

Not to worry, a message to Fintan was met with the response that he would hold onto it until I got back.

It took us a whole week after that to link up, we met the following Sunday which was 1st October and the deal was done.

Tuesday evening, 3rd October, my son dropped me over to pick up the new purchase with 58,645 miles on it and all the spare bits and pieces that came with it, Clymer manual, spare brake pads, spare wheel, tyre, tool kit and even a fleece. Well actually it took me 2 weeks to find the fleece.

In between.....its has a change of fluids, new brake pads and brake fluid change, new tyres on it, cracked a header as they do.

Sunday went out for breakfast with a few others, we meet twice a month for breakfast at The Viaduct Inn. No matter where you park a BMW someone always parks along side it...so this other one came alongside as if to say 'me too'. Actually a very nice guy whose wife also rides a bike.....

Despite its name and hallucinogenic effects no one seems to worry about the well known side effect.

In China they call it: Too Ful Sched

In Germany they call it: Ein Bigger Brikhaus, Schnell.

In England the women spot it first and call it either of two: Itgoes or Aygo

In Australia they don't call it anything, there's enough room for every one ever made.

But the amazing thing is that there is a cure for it.

Found it on the internet.



Buy another darn K. But the cure isn't permanent. Fortunately for some.
