And the moment you've all been waiting on, other that Gaz Mac breaking a rear gear cable it was relatively mechanical incident free except for me.
Remember this was my shake down run for the Ragley, half of the ride was spoiled by rear gear issues then to top it off the NEW XT chain f#cked up due to me not cutting it to the right length yet, (I was going to eventually) after the running in period. BTW Keith thanks for the help and the peasants who were taking the piss "getitupyeah" :evil:

I must say though I did like the first ride on the Blue Pig I just need to get it set up right which you can only do by riding it :wink:
