I stayed here for a couple of nights in Nov whilst visiting Motorcycle Live at the NEC.  The pub is ideally placed in the village of Hampton in Arden, which is just a 4 minute train ride from the NEC.

Project GSXR Part 3

After making the decision to keep the GSXR and make a few modifications the time finally came to fit them.  All the web searching was done, items purchased and delivered, time for action.

The fitting of the kit was delayed a few months as I had an injury to contend with, but once up and running again it was time to fit all the shiny new parts. The kit from CMC was complemented with a new double bubble screen from M&P along with a new clutch cable, the old one being the original 14yr old cable. The screen was bought for two reasons, the first was an attempt to alter the airflow to stop some helmet buffeting and the second was due to the fact it would need altering and I wanted to keep the original Suzuki item unmodified.

How much of a change was necessary? Would a height increase help or was more adjustability required?

Mid August 2014, I decided that since there was a national fiesta immediately before a weekend a touring trip was in order.  Not much planning would be done as I only decided to go three days before.  After about 10 minutes on Google Maps the decision was made to head north east up the Costa Blanca coastline towards Benicàssim before turning inland and stopping somewhere near Albocàsser for the night.  Where would I stay?  Maybe a nice hotel, or dig out the old tent and give camping a go, what could possibly go wrong.
