A couple of days ago, I went for a late afternoon ride in the Lakes. I've been over Hardknott and Wrynose Passes a few times on my motorbikes but took the Silverwing just to see how the transmission would cope. We approached via a new to me route by Dungeon Ghyll.

The bike performed well and it *is* easier than a manual tranny bike, although the bumps are felt a bit more. The Hyper Pro front springs and YSS rear shocks make a lot of difference. Anyhow, you can see the trip for yourselves on a video I've uploaded on YouTube:

Very nicely done and interesting.

25+ Years since I last went over !!! Where does it all go ?

I`ll watch the vid again on my sons video projector so really get the benifit.

Flyingpanman, what is that bar thingie that goes between the brake reservoirs? I've never seen that before. Just curious.

It's a handlebar brace I happened to have lying around. They're used on trail bikes and, as the Silverwing's handlebars are so long, I thought it might reduce the shocks and vibration - the sort of "tuning fork" effect.

It's just an experiment and I can't say it made a significant difference. I'm going to leave it on for a while to see if I notice any change when I remove them. The handlebar covers would have to have the top ends cut off if I fit them permanently and a black and silver brace instead of blue. It may also be a handy place to hang a few accessories- like satnav?
