    BMW prices for new fairing panels are quite steep.

    You could try for second hand one from https://racesparesuk.com/ Mostly these are parts stripped from new on race bikes.

    Re: Almeria 20th Feb

    I sympathize. I had 3 Almeria trips and one to Jerez cancelled last year between March - May

    Re: Almeria 20th Feb

    Boots the Chemist do tests for travel, but they cost £120.

    Seriously though, I would not be wanting to do an overseas track day at the moment. Insurance may be invalidated due to FCO advice, plus...

    Hi Stuart,
    Map looks good, as does the bike! What's your opinion of easy/difficulty/fiddlyness of fitting. I imagine that air bubbles are a pain?

    Cheers Jamie, on the first part I fitted BMW bearings and they are symmetric with no writing stamped on the races.
