It's a tough job walking to the out of town Post Office to collect a spring for the an IT front brake:







Lovely time of the Year here in the UK...... As long as the rain holds off!

Cheers,

Now that's what I see in my mind's eye when someone mentions England/Scotland/UK.

To improve the customer experience,  the sorting office where you have to pay your fee/tax (Insert teeth grating sounds!) has been moved to an industrial  estate on the outskirts of the town.........

Makes for a nice walk when the weather is nice though!

Cheers,
Dave

Sure is a picturesque part of the world you live in Dave. Only thing that would improve it is the sound of a two stroke at full throttle to enhance the serenity.

I can almost see Thomas and his friends shunting trucks and hauling freight.
Too much time with kids.

Anyone got a DG system for a 200 we can borrow for filming purposes?

Or I could just porta-plate the reg onto my 250...

So this time it's the 27000 mile service for the car..... This is the point where I pay ?279.00 for an oil and coolant change plus a couple of filters.
Pretty much an hours work on a Suzuki Jimny.

Want one of these, but they are pre-ordered up to spring 2021:




Meanwhile, whilst my wallet is being drained I go for my usual walk:














Ooh, free fuel, anyone got a key for this:




Tempting, but luckily it was too early!




This is the first green lane I rode on my Yamaha DT50M, nearly forty years ago.....Now not green!






This was the second, now reduced in status to Bridleway




Nice and sunny for a change!

Cheers,

Dave.
