.....but in the mean time, despite kind comments from dear friends The Seat Ain't Right!!!
I have ordered some different vinyls as I am sticking to some sort of brown leathery look for now. If I can't get it right I may have to surrender and go black. The seat Lee, from Viking Seats, made to my choice of design is great - until I put it on the Chicken Shack Ducati. It's too fussy for the bike's colour scheme and the tan colour is too light. My fault not Lee's in any way of course.
Anyway Mrs Cutter and I are riding the 695 Monster and VTR1000 to Assen for the MotoGP and then stopping in Belgium on the way back. Looks like we may get as wet as we did going to Silverstone a couple of weeks back. On the plus side we have VIP passes due to very kind friends and relatives, and Rossi has a new incarnation of the Ducati to ride, Crutchlow should be healed enough, and Simoncelli is due to keep it right side up for a change. Should be massive - see ya on the other side!
