Last friday was a nice day so I got the old girl out for her last ride this year. I didn't go far. Headed for my usual two visiting places Seaways and Sherburn. I was glad to see a few more bikers had made the same decision as I had, because there were quite a few out on the roads and in the cafe car parks.

Met up with a mate of mine and after our tuna panini's we set off for Sherburn cafe bar. Seeing has it was the last ride we both had a burst on our banyo's if you know what I mean.

Over the weekend I've given her a good clean up, changed the engine oil and filter, Put new pads in front and rear. She's now ready to go into her storage bag. That will be sometime this week.

Roll on Spring time. big grin

Bloody quiet on here innit?
If I reply to yours will you reply to mine?
You have a good winter set up there John. If your wife's dishwasher breaks when you wash your ancilliaries you can always go for disposable plates and cutlery.

I enjoyed my last blast before winter.

Service after Xmas. Mostly easy BUT 16 spark plugs hidden deep in the bowels. Not a DIY job.[/url]

Ayup Chris.

Like the Specials once sang, it's nothing but a ghost town.

She's all tucked up in her storage bag now and sleeping peacefully. I've managed to get a full load of bike parts done whilst the missus was at her daughters. Stig's got one of these storage bags, but I think he's forgotten how to open it.



I've got a few projects on the go just to stop boredom creeping in. I've got a feeling I'll be doing some decorating in March, because the missus has a new settee comng. I'm really looking forward to that. (Not)

I've watched your video a couple of times and she's a quick old girl isn't she? I could be wrong, but after the first Matlock sign on the left. The single white lines look as though they are double banded. I hate that laziness. They can't be arsed to burn the old first white line off the tarmac before applying the new one. disgusted

We are doing the Christmas card runabout today. That should be an hour's job in theory, but it usually takes all friggin day. big grin I'm hoping everybody will be out when we call. Then I can just pop them in the letter box. Bah Humbug. laugh laugh laugh laugh

Take care and stay safe young man. nod thumbsup
