Learned something about fork oil this weekend

Works better in the forks than dribbling down the sides of them.
Fork seals had only been in for about 25k as well, bloody foreign rubbish.

25k seems about right to me for replacing fork seals?

Suppose so, just seems a bit old fashioned. Never had to piddle about with fork seals on my scooter.

What was that album ?...slippery when wet ? :smt002
For the avoidance of doubt and for the benefit of my wife, not everything I may say here will be absolutely true I may on ocassion embellish a little for effect.
That said when it comes to motorbikes, I like to ride side saddle with a nice frock

At least I'm only attracted to seals.
You two with your leathers on look like a colony of elephant seals trying to fuck each other to death.
