Yes sir, baby steps are the way to go! I only meant that there is a lot to work with there. and 5mm-10mm should not be a radical change, but a positive one! ;0)

The Daytona's first track day cannot come soon enough - promised myself Phillip Island this year Only ever took the Sprint to Broadford race track - lots of tight right handers...

Got the the suspension tuned. It needed preload everywhere and the rear preload adjuster on the Ohlins needed to be bled. Took a short ride to start getting used to it. This Daytona is going to be fun.

I just chased my shadow around yesterday afternoon. Probably the last day for awhile to wear the light gloves and jacket. It's a good day on the bike when we regret pulling into the garage!! The bike's also properly filthy from road spray due to a morning thunderstorm.

I gave it a look or two on my way from downstairs to fetch luggage.

Wife and baby are off to the States tomorrow for a few weeks so during that time i have a sneaking suspicion i'll give my new tires a few good runs.

Very happy with them so far and the 190-55 rear definitely makes a difference.
