23k miles / New Tyres

Yep another thousand miles !

The Inspection II service looks like its gonna be 800 quid !!!

And given its now raining again Ive ordered 4 new tyres (front are legal but Id rather have a matching set).
Going from Michelin Pilot Sport 2 [225/40/19 + 255/35/19] to
Goodyear Eagle GSD3 F1 [235/35/19 + 265/30/19] which is the std CSL size , apparently you can also go up to 245/275 f/r on M3 wheels.

Will report how I get on , because I was VERY impressed with the Michelins , just that they are extorsionate to replace.
Tyres bought from Auto Image Glasgow for 800 quid for 4 , which I think is a good deal.

Bike written off / 22k miles / Oulton Park

Shock horror , the bike was confirmed as a writeoff this week , so a cheque arrived from the insurance company, and a reasonable offer it was too :-)

Car is now @ 22400 miles with 1000 est to service time.
Rear tyres ok in this dry weather but would be a nightmare in the wet........

Spent the day at Oulton park for the superbike racing which was awesome.
Truly amazing stuff and the weather held up too.

Also met up with a guy from mini2 on saturday and sold him my compomotive wheels.

Pic 1 is graemes car (lowered)
Pics 2 + 3 are Oulton park (just a taster of the number of bikes present)
Pic 4 is the 2006 GSXR750 in black , the bike I would buy now if I was going down that road again !

M3 hits 21,000 miles ........

clock ticks ever closer to the Inspection II service which will be in around 3000 miles time , big bucks + defo need 2 new rear tyres and fronts arent far behind.
Dont fancy having a mismatched set.....

Went out for a quick run tonight to enjoy the car and had some fun with some bikes.
Should hear about my own bike this week too.
