    Wall of death? Or just a narrow squeak?

    They haven't re-surfaced that stretch of road recently, have they?

    You (nearly) owe me a keyboard.

    Thus spake Pip Luscher () unto the assembled multitudes:
    No point. She's been struck dumb by terror anyway.

    Thus spake Ivan D. Reid () unto the assembled multitudes:
    Nope. I think the reason why it happens there is because I've done enough
    miles by then for everything to have reached nominal running temperature, and
    it's the first stretch of road on the journey where one can reach and sustain
    a fairly high speed. If, as I suspect, it's a problem with the speedo drive
    then that might be the place where it's most likely to give trouble, if you
    follow my peculiar logic.

    Thus spake M.Badger () unto the assembled multitudes:
    Thanks I'll look into that possibility.
    The bike is overdue a service and its MOT has just expired, so I might get my
    friendly mechanic to give it a good look over before getting it tested. I
    know I could probably see to this myself but I'm getting lazy in my advancing
    Well, yes, but it's rather out of my way. Alternatively a trip down to
    Eastbourne would produce similar conditions.
    The chain is getting on a bit, to be honest, but I keep it lubed and it has
    had a fairly easy life. I haven't adjusted it for a while, though.

    The noise does sound as if it's coming from the front, but I can't be 100% sure.

    Especially as you'll have some sort of fairing to duct it.

    Sir must be thinking of a Trident Sprint. Mine is the plain, nekked Trident.
