Bonjour. Is anyone going to Ally Pally? For those of you live abroad or have been asleep for the past few years, it's a bike show, now owned by MCN and it's held in Alexandra Palace. Runs from the 29th to the 6th.

My RS250 is going to be on the RiDE stand - yay. It's just having the wheels painted blue and I've got to fit my new chain and sprockets and TYGAs tomorrow. Then it needs a bloody clean, it's 'kin filthy!

So if you're going, take a spanner and you can pinch some trick bits off my little two-dinger!

I went to Ally Pally on Sunday, it was completely rammed. I took some pics of my bike and yes, it does have a flat front tyre! Nice ad for AF1Racing on the tank and the info-board next to the bike!

What do you think to the wheels and TYGAs?

bike looks f#$king hot!

I'm about to do my wheels, but probably marchesini grey, the blue looks killer tho, making me think.

are they mild steel or stainless tygas? you happy with em?

I think I'm gonna go with the mild steel, you can't go wrong for $260!

mild steel is much easier to repair too!

I'm pretty sure the pipes are stainless but I got confused with the order, so I'm not sure. D'oh. They're light as f**k though.

The wheels look good hey? Grey would look good too and would be less of a bastard to keep clean.

I haven't run her up yet, I literally got her back from the paint shop, fitted the TYGA system then she went in a van down to the London show. I think I'll need to mess around with the jetting first and some dyno time.

Next on the list is gold nitrided forks.
