Great stuff.... cheers for the prompt update.
can I ask who did your suspension set up, and what did it cost.

Cheers

I used a company called REVS in Halesowen. Its made a world of difference to the handling of the bike and actually increased my confidence with the stock rubber. The front as standard from Kwak is far too soft which is what makes the bike feel like its going to fall over on islands etc. Also at over 16 stone I am border line on the limit of capability for the rear shock and springs which they have suggested changing if I keep the bike, but at the moment the setup has made the bike excellent. She now feels like she is on rails

If you'd asked a few weeks ago I could've obliged Dave. My front was down to about 0.5mm. Looked a little and I do mean a little like a 20 pence piece, due to my daily 30 mile commute, but it was still very rideable  :028:

01s are good for about 8k rear, 10-12 front, riding style dependant of course  :038:

Has anyone used both the PR5 and the Roadtec 01 that can give their direct opinion on which is best. Changing my tyres on Monday morning from stock and stuck between them both, I appreciate that either tyre will be an improvement

I've got the R5's, fantastic tyres I went for the R5's because I used to run PR4's and feel I can trust the Michelin's.
Michelin also have a few years MotoGP testing behind them now.

However, there's probably so little to tell between all the top end sports touring tyres that it's probably just worth getting the ones with the best deal on at the time.

There's other research to be done on both tyres and a poll on this forum, all worth reading. Answers your questions and gives you a good overall picture of what others are running.
