I took the bike out the other day and it was marginally better but the rad has been due replacement for a little while now.. :?

I repainted the fan cowling a few weeks ago as it was starting to look a little grubby after inspecting the lower rad. I cleaned the knackered rad up as best as I could and also took the opportunity to paint the grill on v-piece too so it all looks a bit better now.. I had drained the coolant as it's been in for at least 18 months and replaced it with fresh stuff for good measure. It is running a little cooler still (80 / 90 - up to what would be 100 in traffic) but replacement is on the cards anyways.

The odo passed through 50000 Km today which means it's done about 8000 km since the rebuild two years ago and over 18000 km since I've owned it.

I've also said goodbye to the FJ this week (fancied a change - not sure what to replace it with) so the NC30 will be on front line duty for a few weeks.
