Default Mot.

I had to take my old VT700 for an MOT yesterday, weather was quite nice for the first five miles, then it started to rain..Passed the MOT with no advisories but about halfway back in the rain I got cramp in my left leg...I think old age is getting to me a bit more because I used to be able to get rid of it by stretching out my leg..now it just stays there until it has finished torturing me, then it goes away...

John.

Know what ya mean I used to get away with stretching me leg out (like a foreign biker passing a demo run) and it was sorted in no time. Nowadays I'm finding more and more that I'm having to stand on the pegs and finding the correct pressure point to get shot. Comes to us all I guess.

If you're lucky you'll become old and decrepit too.

Havin' thought about it my left knee doesn't hurt, most of the rest does.
