Fitted Givi rack and V47 topbox.
Seemed massive when I got it (from RockJock of this parish).
Looks OK to me on the bike.

Rode the Tiger for the first time since I broke my knee a couple of months ago and unfortunately I had to call it a day after 40 Miles as the pain was getting more annoying than the pleasure of being back on two wheels.

Keep up the physio, I was there for 3 years after breaking my knee, tibia plateau broke in two (highsided). That was back in 2010, ridden to Italy a few times since. It don't like winter. I wear a neoprene knee support on a long run. The T800 is a comfy bike for us old cripples eh.

Collected the new bike. Had a meandering ride home to start to get used to it. Still reading the manual! Looks good so far.

Had two black, round rubber rings fitted, front and rear, Mich PR5's so we're good to go for another 8,000 miles. :305:

Hope they are as good in the handling department as the PR4's were, the tread on the PR5's is a bit chunkier. 
Technology! Life was so much simpler before the invention of the wheel.

Turned my bike into a Ducati emergency fuel tanker. Two x  one litre containers. As it turned out we didn't need to use the fuel as a gas station we weren't sure about was open but they fit quite nice and I may use this set up again in future for me.

Start 4 nights today so after that only effectively have 3.5 days next week to ensure all ready for the Megameet in Cumbria so between heavy rain dropped the front wheel out and took it to Protyre/GupaP on the off chance and struck lucky. As soon as the motorcycle fitter returned from his lunch my lumpy Michelin PR4 was swopped out for a shiny new Michelin Road 5.

Got it home and decided to check it over, starting with the brake dust build up in the disk holes


so for speed and ease a nice new 8mm drill bit in battery drill soon had them all cleared.


Then a convenient to hand countersunk short 6mm screw and nut and all disk bobbins rotated and cleaned with brake/clutch cleaner ...


and all back together ready to ride to work this evening.  :017:
