Default On the road again

After a serious accident last August I'm back on the road, on a trike.

Still not sure if I'll be able to ride a bike, got to wait and see if my leg and hand improve. At least I can get myself about now,

Try not to lean at the corners and no filtering..

It's good that you are back on the road..

Remember they still can't see you..

Still not sure if I'll be able to ride a bike, but I'm going to hang on to it for the time being, just in case I can use it. I have been thinking about selling it, but I don't really want to.

It set me back more than I could really afford, but I can't say just in case my other half reads this.

I take it you got the oil line back - i gave it to a young lady who answered your door - either that or you have classy burglars on your estate

Yes I got it, the young lady was my daughter(she takes far more than a burgler ever could)

i thought she was likely your daughter but didn't want to assume. Bike is all sorted now after pertek did me an oil line but the head gasket then went at the front around the cam chain tunnel and after failing to get the head off it had to go into MTC who had the tools/gas to get the little bolts at the front out and crack the seal.

Oh well, it has still cost me less than I see them advertised for and I know it is all okay internally now.
