Just returned from a 700 mile tour around Yorkshire UK. Two up and luggage she performed perfectly.

Now home and looking at the chain it could do with a little tighten. What should the "play" be please.

Having read this thread again after the debate on pillion characteristics I started doubting my pervious interpretation of the first post.....

 

But, as Studley mentioned in another thread, I'm a Norwegian and may not understand English correctly  :rolleyes:

Hi Bjorge (sorry I don't know how to get the o with the accent through it). I just wondered if that was a mis-type or deliberate - pervious, because it make your whole interpretation of the post even funnier. Keep posting. Ali

Bjørge,

your grasp, of what passes for English language here, is better than most. Including certain people who attempt to compensate by being unmannerly and downright rude. Who said Norwegians don't have a sense of Humour ?
