I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

Took Tallulah out for a wee spin the other day. Needed some milk & as it was a nice day thought I'd ride instead of taking the car. a quick check of tyres, oil  & electrics as she's not been out for almost a month. Battery was a little low but she started without too much trouble.

£23 for two pints of milk, including petrol to the shop & back. Mrs L couldn't quite understand how it took a couple of hours to get to the shop when it's only 2 miles away.

It was good to get out & about.   :wheel

I've managed not to get out this weekend at all... Too much mist here for the bike and very salty roads. So, the GS stayed inside, the KTM remains a naked. Too cold to work on the KTM as well.
I did do that "shopping run" years ago when I really needed to get some milk and it took me over 100km to find it. ;)

It amazes me how far you need to go just to get essentials these days.

I'm thinking of running out of cheese later this week.  :icon_mrgreen:

Pulled her out of the garage today & in to the sunshine. Was expecting to have to charge the battery, but no, she started first press of the button. Happy with that even if she was turning over a little sluggish ( compared to usual).

A quick once over with a rag clean the lights  a chain oil & she's good to go.

Except the fluid in the expansion tank was a little low. I kind of expected that as I've not checked the level since I did a fluid change a while back. I now have a pool of coolant on the drive. Yep, over filled it & she spat out what she didn't want when I warmed her up..

Never mi d, taking her out later for a trip to the nearest shop. I might forget the way again.  :wheel   :icon_mrgreen:
