She looks lovely Luis, muy bien. :D

I did try to learn Spanish years ago. I wish I'd kept it up.

Thank you steve for your words!

Gracias steve por sus palabras!

There is always time to learn languages. I have learned a lot by reading manuals and forums and I almost always have to use the translator

I've had another few days back in Sunny Bere Island.
I flew into Cork from Southampton realy hoping my Yamaha would still be in the airport.

It was.
Had a lovely dry ride down to the pontoon.
Took the ferry home with the bike, wow did I get a soaking through Wales, without a screen it was like a hosepipe in my face.

Back to work today though on a proper bike. My trusty Huntmaster. Proper vibration not that high pitched buzzy stuff from the Yamaha. Even had a proper Ariel breakdown when another of my wires parted company just as I was near a lay by on the A41 near Hemel Hempstead. Easy fix. :D

Steve,
It must be bizarre swapping from a Yamaha to an Ariel and then to a combination and then to a..............

Still, if a wire broke or something with the Yamaha I guess it might not be so simple as a road side fix!!

Safe riding.

Keith

PS. Got in over 100 miles on the VH over Easter........sheer joy! :D

I've been busy at work recently with another trip to Pisa to finish the job I was working on. She's a huge toy for someone.

Back home and as I've a job in Kent tomorrow I thought I'd check my bke over. Chain greased, swinging arm greased, a bit of a clean up. Checked the wheel nuts, problem. One of the nuts spun on the stud. Removing the wheel, somehow I've managed to shear off the stud inside the nut.

I thought getting the remains of the stud out would be difficult but I had a plan.
I drilled two 3mm holes alongside each other into the stud then put the drill on its side to create a slot. Then I hammered in a screwdriver and just turned it out. It worked

Heres a picture of where my 90 degree grease nipple is located and how my grease gun can get in to it.

Thanks for those Steve - I see that with the FERC fitted, the grease nipple pretty well has to go there. That Morgo filter is pretty small isn't it.
cheers
