Tenable ride out but loved my duke
I had the misfortune of having to take my bike back to the dealer today as the clutch was shot after only 1900 miles but still all fixed now and I bought some hand guards 😁
The weather in my part of the UK was terrible a 90 mile ride to the dealer, I left the house at 0830 at -1 degree as the clutch was slipping I decided to go down the motorway as after all it would stay in one gear nearly all the way I thought but no shed loads of hold ups for the first 20 miles.
The first 60 miles of the journey were in this freezing cold fog that was kind of a brown tinge due to all the rubbish on the roads.
My journey home was a bit better as came back across country through all the villages nice ride apart from even more rubbish being thrown up the last 20 miles were on the motorway with no street lamps a visor and mirrors that had mor dirt on them then clear bits and a head lamp that was that dirty that a candle was more powerful
BUT THE GOOD BITS.
The bike is fixed.
Even after all the bad bits I LOVED THE BIKE it was a fantastic ride even after 180 mile total ride no aches or pain(apart from frost bite).
Finally the bike looks that bad I can spend a couple of hours tomorrow lovingly cleaning it👍
A truly great bike well pleased.
