We also had a long walk around the city. Lyn wanted to visit some candle factory south of the Clyde, so we found ourselves walking through a rough looking part of Govan too, which was .... interesting. I half expected to see Rab C. Nesbitt walk past us.

Troon was nice. We stayed in a seafront apartment here:

I think you've started a trend now, all D2 servicing "events" are turned into a mini-break.

I wonder if MJ will open a B&B?

The calipers on this one were reconditioned a couple of years ago, but the Brembos are a flawed design in that regard as the clearances are so tight. I pull the pads and clean everything up every oil change which stops them getting stuck

(I also pull and re-grease the front strut pinch bolt every oil change too )
MJ, could this be causing the brake smell and heat I described?

That was top suspect, but they aren't binding - I checked that.
