    He He might have to get the paint brush out then.

    Fitted new rear brake pads, a new rear tyre and got it moted, had a fettle with the heated grips as they were not working, only a blown fuse so all good, have a few bits and pieces lying around off the old one but don't know if I'm allowed to sell on here as can't get the sale page on the oracle to work, I may have to get listing on Ebay.

    Today, I have mostly been preparing "Old Trophy" for his MOT test tomorrow.
    Not a lot of work needed, just a general check over and replace a blown tail-light bulb.

    but,.... will the Norton pea-shooters pass the noise test ? ?

    Well he passed :).
    I don't think the tester fired up the bike ? I could hear cars being revved up, but not the bike.
    Maybe he looked at the "silencers" and thought "I'm not starting that up in here", or maybe he noticed the baffles and thought "well that's ok then", or, maybe he heard me riding in and thought "that sounds nice". Or, maybe all three ?

    Anyway, test passed, so now I'm thinking "should I take out the baffles to get the bark and crackle, pop and bang back on the over-run"

    I suppose at my age I should know better.

    My Daytona GTX's cost so much that I don't think I shall ever again be able to afford to feel the thrill of new boots!
