    Griffs coming to Newcastle in the north east!

    Hey guys,

    Well my bikes due a service so griff is coming to do it. So, while he is blessing the north east with his presence, does anyone else want any work doing? i've got a garage to work in, and a kettle! So anyone else who wants anything doing is welcome to come along.

    Dates wise, it's looking like second or third week of October. Date to be confirmed.

    So is anyone else interested?

    Ta,

    Anton

    Sounds good! Think some suspension set up is on the cards for me like.

    Where abouts in Newcastle are you? (I'm in Benton). I think Glen might be interested too. We'll all have to have a meet up, sure there'll be more of us around!

    Whey I dont know if I'm too late or if he'll have time, but my service light is on and I would rather trust someone who knows aprilias to do it. Also a quick glance over the bike would be appreciated. Let me know if its possible. Cheers

    Hi anton, that date should be fine, let me know. As for service I believe it is just a minor (18,000) is that right?

    hi anton, cant say for sure weather i can make the date due to my work, but i'll do my best to get the day off! just out of interest, do you know what griff charges for a major service? just thinking if hes going to do a valve clearance check i may as well go the whole hog...!? cheers for all the organisation anyhow!
