Messy

Nothing much planned, family lunch on Saturday so my just turned 1 granddaughter can attend before we both need an afternoon nap  :016:

A good many  :031: :031: :031: :031: :031: will be involved I'm sure  :038:

T120

Where's the IAM based out of, Crewe ?

I know a few friends and a Blood Biker friend who do the ROSPA version, not sure which to go for, but eventually I really ought to take a look, I did a Bikesafe a while ago, but after 44 years of biking that was the first formal training course I've ever done, I'm obviously pre-CBT, or anything else  :034:
Now available in "Batman"

Yes they meet in Crewe for the ride outs and at a pub just outside Crewe for the socials. Ride outs tend to be out in to Cheshire and Shropshire towards the Welsh borders. I went out for 6 or so weekly ride outs over the summer of 2008 and at some point it rained on every trip, very unlike this year ;)

Hunting down chains/disk locks
Found my 18 yr old Shoei - bin
Insurance and tax done
Garage tidied up (just a bit mind)
and
bike home, TODAY! :001:

Changed forum profile 'bike' status.
A bit excited actually. Suppose I'd better tell the wife what I've done - or maybe just go out for a little ride before she gets home.

Thanks all - defo the right choice.

Pointless telling your wife, just enjoy the bike  :028:

She'll figure it out in her own good time  :002:
Tinkering is what happens when you try something you dont quite know how to do, guided by whim, imagination, and curiosity.
