Nice pics,thanks.

What model is your tank bag?
Does it interfere with your handlebars at all?
would you recommend this bag?

It is a GIVI ST602 with the BF04 ring.  I like it a lot, plenty of room for glasses, flashlight, multi-purpose motorcycle tool, and other goodies.  The phone viewing slot works okay, great tactile touch through the plastic, but a large phone is a pain in the a$$ to put in the pocket.  I usually just throw the phone inside the case and zip it up.

The givi power cord is ridiculously over priced, so I just bought a small 4-port USB hub, and this cool volt/amp meter (  Palumma 24W/4.8A Dual USB  www.amazon.com/gp/B0773BYS6P. )

The only things the bag interferes with on my bars is the controller for my Moto Cam.  And all it does is push the controller upwards at full lock on a left turn.

I can no longer use a phone holder that mounts on the bars, but that doesn't bother me.

Most of the circuit is now a golf course. The hairpin is still there but that's about it, the airfield is still in use. .  Gus and me got a lift back to the circuit one saturdy night From the hope and anchor pub in the village sat on the bonnet of a sports car with a young girl driving it. I seem to remember she had a boxer dog that kept pinching balls off the pool table. Cumbria Steam gathering is held on the airfield.

If I can recommend it, I use this, and I feel very good !!  :152:

It is a product for industrial chains and gears ..  :178:

packaging machinery, conveyor belts, gear wheels, rods and hinges, asphalt pavers,

drilling machines, road sweepers, shears and presses, winches. Mineral containing lubricant

additives E.P. (extreme pressure). It penetrates and reaches the most inaccessible points of the gears,

eliminates the inconvenience of uncovered areas. Ensures 100% lubrication. It never dries up

High adhesion and load resistance. Forms a tough film for high pressure and resistant to

washout, at temperatures, at centrifugation. Prevents gear wear and protects

 Superb riding country out there. Road edges do scare me, but less so on a bike  :008: .

Still being alive and able to ride my bikes, too many good mates are no longer with us.

Great pictures  :028:   

I know Flookburgh well as I lived in the Lakes for 20 years...I also remember the 'mile straight' where some good speeds could be achieved  :015:   

I think the old airfield now mainly supports sky diving

You mean the handle bars turn right by itself when on the centre stand? If sow, check if no wiring or hoses are stuck and pull on the bar.

While riding, normal I would say, curb of the road, wind, the way you sit on the bike. Most of us on not as straight as we think. Look at other bikers and you will notice they are rarely 100% sitting straight and in line with the bike.

Best advice, don't let go the bars,  :745:

The static test on the stand does not prove anything.
