Default agri puncture

Much to their bemusement: I have now taken to waving at massey ferguson, john deere & New Holland drivers

Big thanks to PGH motorcycles of Torbay who fitted a new tube-they are more used to Victory M'cycles than Harleys
&
it was good to see that bad taste is not a preserve of Harleys: saw a brown snakeskin seat on one.....

pics: looking good
