    In preparation so far I've..........

    Cleaned it
    Oil and filter change
    Clean air filter (+ 2 spares)
    New chain and sprockets
    New FIM tyres (with new tubes)
    Spark plug
    Front and rear brake pads
    Suspension re-greased
    New clutch cable, chain block, hand guards, grips
    Loctite on every nut and bolt
    Crap Chinese watch lashed to the bars as back up for the one in the clock
    Recent Talon wheels so spokes/wheel bearings all OK
    Rubber band/ timecaed holder thing fitted

    So, all you old hands what have I missed so far??  scratch

    With my habit of dropping the thing in deep water, was thinking of carrying one to save a bit of time, should the worse happen? Embarassed

    Youve 100% dropped a bollock, sorry to point it out, but innertubes were a thing from the 90s that used to spoil your day back then. Youve spent a lot of time and money, get it right and get some mousses in. even borrow some but get them in!!

    Have spent a long time wondering about mousses and can't get my head around either the 200 quid they cost and the pain in the arse they look to fit versus the piddling amount of punctures I've had in donkeys years of riding  Very Happy

    As this might be the last enduro I do, wouldn't get much future value out of 'em either

    But you've got me wondering all over again now.........?
