Finally got the Sprint ST out at the weekend to turn its wheels in\nanger. Got up to a nice *eeeek!* mph along the Drift Road.\n\nObservations:\n1. it handles better with 36psi in the front rather than the 17psi with\nwhich it started out.\n2. my helmet really starts to lift off at about 80. I quick call into\nHG in Slough saw me finally order that new Arai I've been on\nabout.\n3. the paintwork on the tank is going a bit awry.\n\nAt the front of the tank, near the 'dents' where the bars go when on\nfull lock, the paint and/or clear lacquer seems to be "crazed" quite\nbadly. I noticed this when pushing the bike back into the garage.\n\nHas anyone else had seen anything similar, on a Triumph or anything\nelse for that matter? What would cause it? Can Beav fix it if I find\nthat it gets worse or if I get overly bothered by it?\n\nIt's only two years and about 5800 miles old so I wouldn't have\nexpected anything like this.\n\n\n[URL]http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=drift+road,+maidenhead[/URL]\n A Chaser. They only had a few of the correct size on stock and\nnone of any of the colours I liked.\n I also tried on AGV, Nolan, Shoei, Schuberth and something else I\nunremember. None of them fitted me as well as the Arais.
