    "Slightly irritating, but not quite enough to scratch that itch" thread.

    The bone gaps on the x-ray should start to go very slightly "misty". It's almost unnoticeable at first, but any misting usually indicates good progress.

    My old blade's system isn't standard, it runs the same Yoshimura can that came on the bike when I got it, but I've replaced the rest with a stainless system which is the same spec as an original one. It looks nice and has a good "rort" without being stupidly loud. However, some of the sports bikes pipes I hear are really very noisy indeed, so I can see why people don't like them.

    FEMA’s survey on road closures & motorcycle noise.

    In several European countries (like Germany and the Netherlands) more and more roads are closed for motorcycles, partly due to complaints about excessive motorcycle noise.

    It's an interesting and contentious subject for sure. I know I dislike excessively loud motorcycles, but maybe I'm just getting old! Anyway, FEMA would like to ask us some questions on this subject ...

    I didn't. I refered to dropped TT / extended HT frames as being time trial with no mention of the frame builder, because I seem to remember this as what I'd read. If you have better knowledge though, fair enough!

    Really?

    Yep, they tended to be, but through the years he rode many different Pinarello & "Banesto" liveried frames. However, as I read all this on the internet, it could of course just be nonsense.

    The dropped TT / extended HT ones were the time trial bikes. His frame shapes differed depending on the specific discipline.

    After what you've been through this morning, I think some leeway is definitely allowed. I hope you're chilled and not feeling too bad.
