6 days of frost in a row with no salt. Plus 9 degrees this morning and loads on the road. Highland council, expect the unexpected.

A glide isn't on the cards. Can't reach the controls on any of the smaller bikes, let alone the glide.

Going for the new 2012 Night rod special in sedona orange. Should arrive this week but have to get a few bits added - backrest and rack etc. Also having to reduce the reach to my foot controls by around 4.5" so I can reach them. Please don't laugh out too loudly. :D:o

Wots a vacbag never heard of that. I dont have power in my garage and its a bit open so I get lots of condensation on my bike so that sounds promising, tell me more.

Heres the link. Looks and sounds ideal. And for the price its worth giving it a go I thought.

Thanks, ah'm gonna have a go with that. Take it a bit of care needed with the surface bike to be parked on and sharp edges an issue. Imagine the sidestand gonna be problematic.
