Last month I had a letter off Triumph telling me that I needed to get a new mapping loaded onto my Rocket because of a potential issue with the bike stalling as the engine returns to idle. It's not a problem I've seen since I first bought the bike. That may have had something to do with the TuneBoy tune that I'd blown over the top.. anyway I digress..
I picked up the beetle bags from Dream Machine last week. With some help from Steve I fitted them on Monday evening. The bike's a bit wider now so I'm going to have to be caredful when filtering. They look awesome and were well worth the trouble that it took to get them done.
Just did a search on Google for Beetle Bags. This site comes up on the first page! W00t!
I've just spoken to Daz at Dream Machines. Dream Machines warranty all of their work and therefore they will only use someone else's primer as a base, flatting and applying their own primer before they start applying topcoats. The primer that they've been putting on has been 'pinholing' which is very unusual with a Corbin product. Daz was telling me that Dream Machines have sprayed a lot of Corbin products in the past and are usually very impressed with the finish.
Glad I didn't leave the solo seat on the R6. Looking on eBay there's one that is currently at £65.00 with a day and a bit to go.
That's made me feel a bit better!
I finally sold the R6 this morning. In the end I sold it to a local garage who gave me top book for it. It's not as much as I wanted but involved considerably less hassle than advertising/ebaying the bike.
I took a couple of bits off it before I sold it though. I've got a screen and a seat cowl to sell on eBay. They should go easily enough.
