    Lovely afternoon, dry roads, perfect weather. Just back in from a
    morning in court and need to clear the cobwebs. And what is a certain
    Ginge of this parish doing instead of hooning? His shopping ffs!

    I blame you lot who are descending for Donington. You've made him go
    all domesticated.

    Riding alone is great.

    No pressure, just you and the road.

    <counts the hours down to 8:30 tomorrow>

    Bed settee room here if you can cope with kids and cats. I'm not
    planning on going over (unless certain purchases are made in Donington
    Market on Sunday morning) but you're welcome to use here as a base.
    'Twas fun, even the bit where things vibrated loose and stopped the
    bike working. 2 phone calls later (the first of which involved the
    Ginge of doom predicting having to drop the enginge out to sort the
    selector) a bit of twiddling with nuts and home again about 20 mins
    ago. Slightly less inclined to firebomb certain houses now.

    I'm inclined to agree but it would have been handy to have someone
    with a spanner around.
    I experimented with steering with the pegs today, feeling how
    different weight put on will shift the thing. Did the A515 bit just on
    shifting pegs - lovely,

    I found out that I filter like a ****, something about men in full
    leathers trying to impress the girlie that brought out my fastest
    roundabout speeds yet. Not very clever given I knew I had a loose nut
    but immense fun. I peeled off into the supermarket for cigarettes
    before it got too silly.
    Is it all fixed and insurance company paid for now?
