    Easter is on the way and the lucky ones amongst us have some time off.   :152:

    So..... have you got anything planned for the Easter weekend that involves your new 950 ?    :305:

    Yes a few ride outs with mates up the Northumberland coast and Scottish boarders its motorcycle Nirvana.

    that will take me well over the 600 mile service but the stealer said that was ok because they could not book me in for the service they said a  note would be put on my file

    Service light comes on at 620. I've been told I'm OK up to 700; not sure what happens after that.....

    I'll be fitting new headlight bulbs and horn and going out for a few short rides. Up to 570 miles now.

    What's wrong with the bulbs already fitted?
    I haven't done a night ride yet on my 950. I'm planning to Do one due to my early starts for the dart to the tunnel in June for my ride to Spain also Assen at the end Sept.
    Do they not perform well?

    My Easter plan is a ride to Anglesey on Good Friday via Betswy-Coed on the return   :001: 160miles return trip.

    Lots of recommendations on multistrada 1200 forum re poor performance of standard bulbs

    Spur of the moment decision today to ride down to the south coast to Billys on the beach at Bracklesham Bay. Lovely 130 mile round trip. Got chatting to another biker there who had just passed his test at the tender age of 62 - a Harley sportster rider, but he did like my Ducati, so I'll let him off buying a Harley. Really busy there and nice to have a cuppa and pannini sitting on the beach front. I'll definitely go again sometime.
