Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2017

Postby Steven.Carter » Sun Jan 01, 2017 4:49 pm

Here we go I'll start another Year here today. As I've said before might not be as much riding but I'll include more fixing.

I'll hopefully do a few more Rallies.

After my German trip and discharging it a few times the battery had swelled up and seemed to have got quite hot.
So not giving up on lithium battery's I got one of these on the right for £35.00. Its now been fitted since August. All seems well. So far.at least

The weather here today is absolutely lovely so I've decided to head south. Which can only done by boat so I'm off to the Isle of Wight.
The large cruise ship has an unusual bow. Like the Titanic, but not the paint scheme

I biked the IOW last year ( great fun) but the £40.00 rtn fare for me and the bike was a bit on the steep side!

Red Funnels a bit cheaper but still expensive at £33 return.

Really enjoyed your trip's travels and tribulations over the past year and looking forward to your travels and tips over the next year.
I've been to a couple of the shows/jumbles on the same day as you during the year so perhaps I will be able to introduce myself during the coming year.
Regards Graham

I'm sure our paths will cross one fine day Graham. Drop me a pm and I'll give you my mobile number.

There's nowhere better then the Isle of Wight when the sun shines.
