Put up loads of shelves and cupboards in my new garage to store all my crap and the bike stuff.

Route sounds good Terry, looking forward to it.

It was only a couple months ago it had its' last wash, so hopefully this extra activity isn't going to attract the clouds

What's with this grumpiness thing? I'm only grumpy cos I'm always waiting for yoos! Either your bikes broken down, or you've stopped to take even more pictures, or you've fallen in love with an alpine digger driver. No wonder I'm grumpy.

I'll have you know that alpine digger driver was driving a CAT'erpillar.
And he had lovely eyes.

I'll be on my new slow bike so you really will need to wait on me.

Luv ya.

Looking forward to seeing you Sat morning, I think that makes about 12 riders, nice manageable number.

Just changed the oil, oil filter and air filter. I have a feeling this servicing is going to get expensive considering I've clocked up over 6,000 miles in less than 2 months Shocked

I should have learnt by now of the perils of cleaning my bike before a ride-out but it was a tad too dirty for the mechy to work on it - so it got another lick and a promise.

Oil spark plugs and filters all changed today bit of a scare when a brand new plug snapped off inside then cleaned the exup valve and all but one bolt snapped off too.
