I've left my job today after 10 years and am now planning a life centred around spending lots more time riding out on my Scrambler 1100 special and enjoying it with my wife and her Honda CB1100 ex . Cant wait !
Hi MikeD,
I had to let my 1100ES go last year...at 76 and a short ass 5’4” I found it too intimidating in town. Really did like that bike.
Interested to hear how your wife manages her ES, can she flat foot it and handle the weight okay?
I’m finding the Classic much easier in town, but, with a worn out lower back and needing a new knee and left hip it’s still hard going at times.
Thanking you,Ken, from Heywood.

Got a new plate holder from evotech for my DS and spend my evening installing it.
Woke up this morning with the first snow of this winter, so no ride for me today. :cautious:(n)

Roger, shall do.

Haven't read any stellar guides on how to do this - have you come across any in your travels?
Under the seat you will find the ABS unit with all the brake hoses connected to it. Trace the brake line of the caliper you want to bleed up to the unit, wrap a cloth around the brake hose banjo bolt at the ABS unit, apply some (no need for full) pressure to the pedal and hold, while holding some pressure loosen the banjo bolt slowly, allowing the fluid to weep out onto the cloth, repeat until all air bubbles stop.
Keep an eye on the reservoir fluid level !
When I do this I make a point of pumping enough fluid through that I have no doubt all air is gone and all the fluid is replaced. Then I go to the relevant caliper and bleed it there too.
