That seat looks great. Been thinking of changing mine. It's a bit uncomfortable on my longer rides.

Also, another fun tip. Go down to your local health food market. Pickup up a gallon of deionized water. Get quality microfiber cloths and a spray bottle. Use it to spray down and wipe off your bike after your rides. DI water won't leave behind water spots, and is excellent at flushing off road grime.

WD40 is also good for cleaning chains.. Parafin, is a good cleaning product, the sort you get you can get it easily from most hardware/garden places, as fuel for parafin heaters.. Oh, and of course, if you live somewhere where they use particularly corrosive road clearing salt/grit, then acf-50 is a must

Just came back from a great ride to Jarrahdale with lots of twisties  ;D
Noticed when I was stuck at the lights , my temps climbed a bit .
When I got home , checked things out and the fan was working OK but the rad was a bit blocked with gunk and bugs .
Anyway , put the hose on it , gave it a good blast and job done .
I think it is a must do ,  giving your radiator a good clean ready for summer  ;).
Here is a pic of a few of the bikes there . My red one is on the end  8)
