Had my bikes 600 mile service done this morning at On Yer Bike. They also wired in my Sat Nav so that added a bit of time. 2.5 hours labour in all 140 plus oil 19.33, filter 9.72, sundries 5.10 plus vat. Total around 209. How does this compare with others?

Bought some scotoil anti corrosion spray to coat bike as the weather gets worse. Washed and sprayed when got home.

Nice to now be able to use the throttle a bit more freely. :)

Hi foot_loose. That sounds about right. Careful with that throttle. I went sideways on a patch of diesel on a roundabout recently. A bit scary.

What make Sat Nav. Tomtom? Pleased with it? I'm looking at Tomtom & Garmin, but no experience of either.

Roads are greasy recently. Not nice. I have had one or two moments.

Sat Nav is a Garmin Zumo 550. I have mounts for car and bike and lifetime updates for maps. Generally it is very good. My wife has a Tomtom in her car which she likes. You pay your money and take your choice!

You can't say fairer than that!
