First of all, it's good to see Alan Johnston is free. Hope the whole experience hasn't messed with his head and he is given the space to get things together.

The intercom for the bike has turned into a bit of a saga. Starcom seemed like the best solution, as so far we hadn't heard a bad word about it. When initially fitted, the sound was very clear, and it didn't take too long to get the levels set. We took a run to Glasgow and it was OK, with good clarity at legal speeds.

The next day saw us on a Pan Clan run, which was going quite well when we had an enormous feedback sound through the headsets. This was painful, and it was an effort to keep the bike upright long enough to get to the side of the road and to shut the unit off.

So off to Starcom went the unit, it was replaced and thus far we have not had a repetition. I'm still a bit iffy about using it, as that hurt. We'll see what happens over the next few runs.

In other news, some muppet pulled out in front of the car, so for the next few days/weeks we will be commuting on the bike until the insurance companies get their act together. How he didn't see me when there wasn't a cloud in the sky, on a dry clear road. I'm looking forward to the blizzard of paperwork that this will cause. I've decided not to use bad words on this blog, but I've used a few this weekend.
