Took the ZZR out for a shake down run. Cornering felt odd having not ridden for several years, got cramp after about 10 miles but hey, was great to ride again
Complete fabrication, I didn't make it up!

Managed 30 miles today with no cramp what so ever, mind you had a bit of a tank slapper over a small rise in the road so I shat myself instead...................

Fitted a set of new plug caps to the ZZR, no more misfire, I'd be riding it if the stupid focer from ebay sent the correct ones....... At least it seems cured

I love that part of the country. Porlock hill and countersbury hill are fun aren't they. Stunning views along the top too. I might have to see what offers Minehead Butlins have got on.

Bought a second hand Eagle Mach 7 exhaust for my TDM850  to replace the Marving Master.
Was a good idea  :)

I thought i'd judged it right, only the last 10 miles could've been a lot worse. ;)
I'm off to the irish bike festival later in the week, so i'll definitely take my waterproofs for that.

Its the Xdiavel, ducatis version of a cruiser. I took one out a few weeks back and to be honest it's not bad. The looks are divisive but the ergonomics are sublime and the power is plentiful. I can't say I'd ever buy one but if it was that or a Harley I'd choose that everytime

Took the car for MoT
So midway through he calls to his partner about changing a wiper blade there and then to save me a 'fail' and trip to Halfords.   Okay I go along with it.


The car passes with indicator bulb advisories and he gives me the MoT certificate...... along with refusal cert due to faulty wiper blade  :eek   


Not a problem but ...... :rolleyes

Yes I think they have too, has happened to me too, I sat in the waiting room and he came in and said I have a brake bulb out and do I want him to pop one in for £3.99, yes I says and the same as you I get given a pass certificate and also a fail for the brake light being out.
