I lost yet another bolt into the boot trying to secure the boot plinth and gave in...

Sent numerous e-mails about my slit seat, to no avail, but I did bag a nice set of projector headlights from a chap on Facebook, hoping they make it through transit in good shape. It's a lot to ask, I know....

As it was a lovely sunny day, I took the Triumph out for a blast.




The clock has just turned 12,000 miles and the bike is now 20 years old.




Roll on the summer!

Default Chainsawing!

Spent the day chainsawing branches etc. of a tree that came down during the winter. Probably have another 2-3 weekend's worth to go.

A really therapeutic job that I love doing every year.
