    Ditto for a scheduled MOT sortie with ProBike < https://www.probikerepairs.com/ > and boasting yet another blemish-free ticket. Super-fun 30 mile Italian tune-up !

    Blink and you missed it

    Rolled out yesterday for a tankful of fresh fuel and then 50 miles - bikes shiny but I'm rusty. With the impending lock down it felt a bit like a scene from the film "on the beach" ( Remember the Neville Shute book?
    Shame is that after her annual service by Bennetts my Tre was a delight
    Now all I can do is polish and detail as a break from the work in the garden that my wife has scheduled
    In passing - if you plan to ride Llandovery to Builth when this is all over - new speed cameras by the Sugar Loaf - you have been warned
    Forza Benelli

    Thanks - it's a Micron silencer, orginally for an R6, but it really suits the Tornado for some reason. I've tried all sorts of cans but eventually settled on this one...

    I painted the fans with some Halfords fluorescent yellow a few years back - they actually glow faintly in the dark... if you shine a torch on them for a bit first.

    The lower fairings were starting to peel badly (as they do) so rather than get them resprayed I bought some carbon ones from the excellent guys at Carbon.SK (with Forum discount arranged by Laurence White ). Decided to leave some bare carbon showing on various surfaces - you gotta show it off haven't you?

    Not much chance of me ever selling the Tornado, but I'll keep you in mind if I do Sammy...!

    Cheers,
    Dom
