Sat 5.1.13

Hello all, Had bit of a run around last Saturday, I had to take my GT'S seat over to a bloke in Huddersfield West Yorkshire called Tony Archer, he doe's a lot of recovering work on bikes and cars. Anyway going back to our Not So Glorious Summer months I was in the Petrol station, got off the bike and the Zipper of my right Boot caught the seat and put 4 small rips in to the covering on the seat. Some one from Squires Cafe told me about this bloke so as I said last Sat I took the seat over to him in the car, I hope to get it back this weekend all being well. After we had been to Huddersfield we had a drive up to RoseDale in North Yorkshire ( a Nice part of Yorkshire) we go up here once a year usually New Year week to my Grand Parents Memorial to pay our Respects etc. Then after we had done that we found a little Cafe in a small village further North called Castleton, 2 Milky Coffee's 1x Toasted Teacake for the wife and me, well a Fried Breakfast, it would have been Sooooo Rude not to Indulge one's self you know. After this little Pit-Stop we headed out to the coast down past Whitby the back through the North York Moors to Pickering then home, it's a nice drive and next time we are gonna come on the bike to Whitby as the roads are very good. When we got home I looked at the Trip Ometer on the car, we had covered approx 253 miles, well we had a full day out and did what we had set out to do... TTFN TT


  1. Hopefully you'll get the seat back on time with no issues.

    It is one thing to rip your own seat, but man I felt bad when I accidentally tore the pillion seat on Troubadour's America with a boot clasp one year. Luckily he patched it up and the leather strap hid it.


  2. The seat is ready and was going to collect it Sat 12.2.13 but have been asked to work so next Saturday it's a trip over to Huddersfield to get it.....

  3. It is so unfortunate that your seat was ripped off. But I must say that your bike in awesome and from the look of things you are the person who would be comfortable with a tore bike seat. Am sure you will repair it. Michelin Motorcycle Tire
