At last I find a site with a bunch of people who are crazier than me... I thought I was going to lead a terribly lonely existance doing odd stuff like riding stinky two strokes and flying decrepid helicopters for the rest of my life. Any then I found you guys! Nothing quite beats being scared out of your mind flying for 2 hours and then getting on your bike for the ride home in poxy traffic in this poxy Irish weather. Still, at least there's always the weekend. Wonder can any one maybe enlighten me as to why my front tyre is rubbing on the front spark plug cap under hard braking (RS250 95). Do they all do that or am I about to find out that my frame isn't straight (!!!?) Feels straight. Looks straight. Handles finer than a very fine thing, but after a two year break, I'm only just getting my confidence back, so no silliness yet. Any other Irish posters out there gissa shout back. Nice to meet you all. Later.

Good to 'see' you!
Ooooh, that doesn't sound right or good at all, but I dunno why it's happening - bent forks, god forbid?!
You fly helicopters? Lucky git - that's one ambition I'm still aiming for!

Have the forks been droped through the yokes at some time ?

Hmm, might have been, tyre also appears to be rubbing on the crud catcher on the front of the fairing, so this is a good suggestion. Why someone would want to make such a quick steering bike even quicker is beyond me. Thanks, I'll check, cos I haven't had it that long

Nope, forks are standard drop, tops flush with top yoke. Perhaps, it isn't the standard bodywork, although it's usually a good trick getting later bodywork to fit an older bike. Still wouldn't explain the plug cap. I'll sort something out though...

Came back from a weekends Helicopter flying in Ireland just last Sunday. Fantastic weather all week-end, what you moaning about.

Odd country, huh. Just as it becomes 'autumn' the weather gets good. Pity about the ground temperature, tires just don't heat up as quick. Like the roads, which are quite quiet, the airspace isn't exactly chocka either. Like the roads which are quite crap, the airspace has bugger all facilities.

>> Airspace has bugger all facilities << Yeah like Dublin who gave the wrong frequency for Weston (124.2 vs 122.4), and Weston who can't give a pressure setting "Try setting your altimeter to 150 feet" was the advice they gave to one arriving aircraft.
