    3 days till collecting the new CT!! insurance all sorted out,  Dropped off the 20mm lowering links sat nav cable and mount, mirror extenders, admore led kit for the givi E55 maxina top box allready fitted they just have to wire in the harnes, givi top plate and plate adater kit
    Dealers supplying the sw motech risers, twin usb on the bars, and the givi quick release racks for the v35's  then when i get it home after a long grinning like a mad hatter ride :152:, fitting  the riderscan, (a must)  bark busters & frames, givi tank ring ready for the little 4litr bag the kids are getting me for my birthday ,adjustable  screen deflector  and the sw motock foot pegs ,  :182:just been naughty and brought the hyperpro fork springs they will go on at the first service in a couple of weeks, then saving for the hagoncustom lowered rear shock!  used these on my previuos set up for me changed the bike completly will at that point put the standard links back on as the seat would have had worked on for comfort and to reduce hight by 10mm and the rear shock will have the spring shortened by 15mm this also alievatesany  probs with the ground clearance. dropping the forks initially by 8mm with 20mm lowering links thiat should keep the geometry the same a s standard pics will follow on from  collection,and after i have fitted the extras and report on the suspension changes as they occur :047:
