Last weekend I went to the Benellimotobiclubgb rally in Scarborough 235 miles from home great ride and good to meet up with fellow Benelli owners. Thanks for Steve ,Val,Pete and Wendy for organising it.
Longest run the 900 Sei has had for two years over 550 miles over the weekend . It was soo good getting out and about and has cured my two wheel withdrawal symptoms!

Never seen that before. I reckon you should contact the manufacturer. That's a safety issue if I've ever seen one.
Seen it loads of times, it is particularly common with under slung rear calipers. wet roads and the pads gets saturated. Put the bike away where it does not dry out and the pad material de laminates from backing plate.
Low miles , infrequent use, damp storage all start the failure.

This afternoon, from Llandeilo to Aberaeron, then up the coast road to Aberystwyth and back via Tregaron - lot less traffic than I expected ( farmers poised for 2nd silage cut) so a delightful 77 miles - the throttle response is creamy - Friday was Llandovery to Builth - the road has been repaved except, for the Sugar Loaf which is lethal - 80 miles - just a couple of good days left then the rain returns. Oh yes and Shell V Power is now £1.48 - nothing but the best for the Tre!

Never been to Pendine, would like to go sometime. I'm not to far from Elvington where many of those also run. Last time I was there 2 weeks ago Jack Frost on his turbo Hayabusa had a lucky escape, his tyre came apart at over 200mph. He stayed on with an almighty wobble. Came to a stop running on rim of carbon wheel. Bike was put straight into the van, you can see most of the back end took a bashing

I believe I need to do a shim change now on the cams now that’ll be a challenge finding them suckers ..

Rick I recognise some of the cars and bikes in the pictures which came up when I clicked on the photos. I've seen them at Elvington near York at the Straightliner top speed events there. I went out on my bike yesterday as well, was good to be out in the sun. Only thing was it was my cycle so best not put pictures on here. Enjoy.

Went to Italian night at the Ace Cafe and met up with my brother on his Fantic Cabellero.
Put another 80 miles on the 250 2c it’s running better and better the 250 cc Barrels and Pistons are working well!
