Apart from checking tyre pressures and putting battery back on the bike I had it all ready for a little run out today, that was until I could only find one of the 2 oblong nuts to secure the wires for the battery , so I knew I had some somewhere and when finally found they was 6mm and not the 5mm I wanted and 6mm bolt wouldn't go through the hole in the battery, so I did some gardening ☹ And then the post man turned up
That’s crying out to be polished!

Thanks for asking, Alex. Brittle old bones don't let me skate much any more but it's still in my blood. Get my kicks mostly on a snowboard now. The lifts are only about an hour away, and falling on snow is a lot less painful.

Haha! I know what you mean. I've been skating since I was about 10, then migrated to long boards, and sadly sold mine a few years back. I had a Logan Earth Ski when I was 15 and always wanted another. Just to hang on the wall really. The prices these days are unreal.
Finally a chance to do a bit more on my Austrian LC2 ...just front brake to bleed now and check over and hope I can get her down for an Mot..,then off for registration.
And today was the day....bit of ‘pre test inspection’ and a couple of tweaks....and I’ve now the pass I need. need mr D to do me a dating certificate as that avoids DVLA having to think, and then off goes my application!
whilst I’m waiting for that I’ll probably spin some spanners on an Aircooled project.
