Trying not to ride in wet weather in UK!!!!, almost impossible, its always bloody wet, im always amazed when i see bike adverts-never seen the wet-????, must be a fantasy uk they live in.
Regarding long journeys, i got bike at 2500 miles, within 7 days i had done roughly 1000, long journeys & fastish.
Previous owner has many bikes, they are kept in garage, all on optimate chargers & fired up/turned over regularly, this is the only way i could see the emulsification build up occurring, effectively short bursts & no heat build up??, but please advise if im talking rubbish, mild insults only please!!.
