Re: hard brake pedal

Had a brake failure last Summer, A simple cure for constipation IMHO:-
Bike's Only done 68,000 miles but some 16 years old. On holiday in Ireland (Galway Bay). Got the K1100 out, only rode a mile, front brake sticking on. Turned around, brake came free, puddle behind front wheel. Found perished brake hose at T between forks. MOT tested 3 months previous.
Got a pipe made next morning at Pirtek 25.
sphincter still twitching when we rode the Kerry Ring (no pun intended).
Currently in Nottnoc's garage:
2008 Scenic Mk2 Dynamique 1.6 K4M 782. 1998 BMW K1100LTSE, 1994 MotoGuzzi Caifornia 3 LAPD, 1972 Norton Commando, 2010 Trafic SL29 M9R782 115, Lots of tools, Camping Gear & Booze
