My wife is watching Strictly, so I had to join in.....and I know it's only the Honda computer figure, but -

Thought you meant dancing for a moment there. Lol
Had visions of you both dancing in the living room.  :008:

Now here's the daft computer, way off.


At least it's daft in your favour. Mine says 67mpg and I actually got 61mpg!

You haven't adjusted your clock. Looks like Honda have fixed the computer with the latest models.

Ha! Ha! Bike is off the road until March, and clocks will have changed back.  Good Planning?!  :008:

Don't go gentle with that bike mate, you will not burst it and even if you did it's under warranty. I'd rather give it some beans and see what fails than ride gently and things start to fail once out of warranty. Just for info my riding weight is about 12 stone with my gear on, not implying anything by that, but it does have an impact.

I'm 12 stone 4 in the buff, so maybe over 13 stone geared up. Not a big bloke.

So you did the harder run in, what did that entail, not giving a sh#t how you ride it?   :008:
