It would be a shit day wondering weather the sump plug and oil were still in it or not, and every time it stalled thinking 'thats it'! Shocked

Spend the day in a dry garage sorting it instead I'd say!  Very Happy

That is a good point but I got to get out on her, I've been off it for so long I nearly forgot how to ride Laughing I was going to come on your ride last week but didn't get the parts in time from last smashing time in the Wye affraid
I'll have another look in the morning to see if I can at least wedge something between the frame and the plug to stop it unwinding as its not leaking then get the engine out in the week to sort it proper

He's dead right Joe, don't listen to us moithering old farts  cheers

But when you're sat half way up London Lane in the pissing down rain, with a dead bike thats got a grands worth of damage to it you'll start to wonder...............

Then as it starts to go dark and get colder, your phone battery has died, and it's becoming obvious the bastards who promised to come back for you have completely forgotten you're still there - you'll know then thats for sure!

lol! lol!
