    Still to do:
    1. Fit the footpegs, bashplate, fairing and side panels (they're just on loose at the moment).
    2. Ride it :)

    Apologies for the overly contrasty image, I'll get some better ones once it's complete.

    The freeze idea reduces the potential for leaving a bit when you "twist and shout" the wee fork devices.
    Allegedly the suddenly frozen beastie just drops off.
    A wee bit of reversal of the old burn them off technique.

    Pulled more off the dog this year than ever before, plus a couple off myself. I use the forked end twisty thing, it seems to work well.

    On my squad I use a tick lasso (no, you don't get to swing it around your head then throw it at the dog :rolleyes:).
    There are also some little gadgets that have a small fork at the business end that slides around the ticks head area, then you do the twist thing…
