288 miles down to North Devon & she didn't miss a beat. 180 miles before the fuel light came on, so mog not too bad with a head wind.

The down side, I trapped a nerve so used many pain killers, I estimate 2 per 100 miles plus another 2 when I got here.

Just been on a little jaunt along the coast before heading back to my Airbnb.

Tomorrow  more miles  more pain klets & a Cornish pasty lunch stop in Cornwall  :XXsunsmile

I know where you're coming from. I got it in the ear because there was a spot of oil on the kitchen floor.   :nono It's tiled so easy to clean.

I wouldn't have minded so much but she encroached on my domain, the garage, looking for a screwdriver and managed to get some oil on her shoe, which she then transferred to the kitchen floor. I should point out here that the kitchen is also my domain.

Still my fault though  :^_^

Still, it was a good shake down ride later in the day, a short 75 miles covered in and around the lanes of South Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and a little way into Northamptonshire.

Was going to join the Dave Ride today, but overslept ( not a morning person). Ended up playing with the Saab after shifting the 800 out the way. The mess you can make when The better half is out for the day... Hot glue and solder on the Kitchen table, and two dismantled headlights on the floor. I'm an Animal....... better clear up before she gets home mind, I'm not that brave....

For some reason, they're not selling at the moment.

My 06 has been up for sale for almost a year even though the price has been dropped by £500 in that time, but good luck with the sale, I hope it goes soon.

It should do, it's a nice looking machine.

A quick jaunt to the garage after work this evening to do a few jobs on Talyn J in preparation for my week touring. I know it's 2 weeks away but I'm away for work next week.

So what did I do?

First job, check the tyres. I've not used her for about a month & both front & back were down around 3 psi.

That done I thought I'd better remove the dead flies from the screen & beak. The screen was easy but the beak seemed a little wobbly. There are 6 star bolts holding the beak  2 of them seem to attach to metal brackets attached to what looks like the headlight bracket. Both were broken. To be fair, it's overkill as the beak attaches to a bracket anyway, so I'm not too bothered, it's certainly not going to fall off.

Next up, check the chain. A good clean & re-lube. Virtually no oil on the wheel so the Scott oiler seems to be working well. No adjustment needed for the chain, so the oiler was topped up to finish that job.

A quick clean of everything else & jobs a good un.

Might take her out tomorrow  :rrr

Looking good. As TigerBill said, a lot of us moved the fuse box forward for better access. I've got a pic somewhere.
