Cheers Paul. They certainly hold allot.

Crikies, I woke up this morning feeling fine but not for long. Had quite a bout of the military two steps. But I recovered long enough to get to Brighton University. I've had to work out an exhaust cover for a single cylinder engine. This test engine is used for development work for McLaren and F1. I did ask why only one cylinder, apparently all the data is worked out and they only need to scale up for multi cylinders.
No pictures, I wasn't allowed but not much to see anyway. I looked for the Mag :D

Got back home feeling rough again, I'm sure glad it's not next week I got it. What ever it is.

Steve

Short little ride this afternoon to a school in Waterlooville.
Clearly feeling better as I was keen for a coffee on my way home.

Steve,
You're supposed to put the oil in the tank, not drink it!

Glad to hear you're getting over it what ever it was.

I've got over it Keith but not to be left out my bike has caught something now. A nail !!
I'd brought forward my yearly visit to Materlan for socks and pants so as to coincide with the my trip to Germany and the Annual and hadn't got too far before something felt proper bad from behind. Still better at home then on an Autobahn.

The dog is Molly, we're baby sitting for it whilst it's owner is recovering from an OP. She' a little too heavy, I'll have to have words with him when he's better.
When we first had her she wouldn't move. Spent two hours motionless even with a sausage left under her nose. We tried everything, in the end we dragged her across the polished wood floor and into the garden when suddenly in the garden she burst into life. Then the penny dropped, she was too heavy to pick herself up, like an elephant on ice :D
After a while she's managed to get her ballance so all's well.

Great stuff.
Carol often says surely one bike is enough, clearly this shows at least two is needed :D

Had quite a day yesterday riding up to Diss in Norfolk, had a job on a Sewerage Works again. The road it's in is called Dirty Lane. Not appropriate in this instance as it was very clean and no smell
Lovely part of the world.
Altough not that convenient as I've just ridden nearly the same route today to get to Harwich
