Old Faithful

That's the bike been fired up for the first time in nearly six months in anticipation of half decent weather this week.
I was quite surprised the battery was in good working order, it's been lying in the boot of my car for five months.  Smile

We don't have that problem here in Australia. Nice and warm, so get to ride all year round. Laughing 
Sorry, can't help rubbing it in to some Brits from time to time lol.  pmsl  But I can imagine the
feeling of hearing my Tcat being fired up after six months lay off, and it must've been
music to your ears.

You can have too much of a good thing though.  green smile 

I have a mate in Darwin and he's welcome to those days and night's when it's over 40º and 95% humidity.  melting

Yeah, bloody hot up there all year round lol. But I'm from Sydney where temps are more mild. Still, we do get temps like Darwin in the summer,
and that's why Bondi beach is so famous. Because on those hot days all the Brits go there to escape the heat lol.

I used to be a member of the Aussie TOG forums and they'd be posting up pictures of their BBQ's and longing in the sunshine while I was sitting here freezing my nuts off.  grumpy 

I'm still in contact with a few, including a member of the Mobshitters who has a habit of texting me porn pics at 4am (our time) to wind me up.  Laughing

Shakedown run went ok.
Nothing falling off and was surprised that there was no rough running for the first few minutes, until the carbs got a good blow out, this year.
Just a bit of air needed for the tyres.


It doesn't bode well, it'll probably explode or something next month.  green smile
