Not today, exactly, but the other day.

I fitted some tank grips for my knees.

I found that I was getting white finger, mostly on the throttle hand, but sometimes both.

I found this was relieved by sitting back and not leaning on the bars so much.

I fitted the grips and now I am gripping the tank with my knees more and this supports my back in keeping my weight off the bars.

Worked a treat and now it feels more comfortable.

Not going to work for everyone, but just thought I'd share as I know a few have had comfort issues before.

Don't have a pic to hand right now, but they were just off the shelf BikeIT bits, like this:


I applied them across the panels and used a scalpel to divide them down over the panel edges.

Not pretty, but effective.

Looked at it parked up unused in the garage, looked out at the sun and the dry, empty roads, and sighed a deep, mournful sigh...

Me too. It's so tempting, but as has been very well written on here, it's a total "no way".

Just about every household (including mine) on my road was clapping from their front doors for the NHS at 8pm - I was very proud of my neighbours for joining in.

Plenty of time for motorcycling after this is all over - bike's all tucked up in the dry garage and hooked up to the optimate, all ready to go when we get the all clear!
