But it was a great ride.



Straight line driving can be boring though I love it though when you twitch your bum in the seat and feel that crisp resistance. But when the bike wigs when you wag and wags when you wig, you slow down quick. You do some slow speed manuevers and the rear end has that delightful precision of gelatin....Uh OH!!! Quick check shows a tyre rapidly losing air....Uh OH!!!



Never fear, you have your inflation goo as a last resort and your handy plug kit right there in the starboard pannier. Wee nail hole, luckily the plug worked and I was able to air up and keep going.



Now as to the dysentery....Wonder if the plug would work there as well?

I know I do, but then La Reina del Mundo never resorts to physical violence.

Have only the GW tool kit at the moment, have only been doing local trips out so far, however, I will be gathering a small tool pouch together, based on my experience and some of the bits and bobs that you guys recommend. Main "accesory" will be breakdown cover with the RAC or AA, that way, I know the bike will get picked up if a real problem occurs. To be honest I am too long in the tooth to be doing much roadside repairs, played that game for years and it's time to let others do the work.

Did a nice 150+ round trip to the coast yesterday, met a few Wing riders and amazingly the sun shone on us all day.:)I am slowly but shorely getting Helen used to the time in the saddle. Met one couple who had a 1500 with one of those ride on ride off centre stands, boy, if theyare still available, I got to get my hands on one of those, the guy was shorter and older than me but made it look so easy!! He had a well loaded trailer behind too.

Didn't get dysentry, but the tum is a bit dodgey today, from too much greesey food, burgers and chips play havoc, and need to be close to the loo today!!

Definately going to get some tyre repair goo, strikes me, that would be a good investment. One stray nail and the wing is out of the game, bad enough on a small bike, but not for me a rear wheel removal by the side of the motorway, with trucks thundering by at 60mph!!:(

Get a plug kit as well and allow the plug to be your first line of defense not the goo. If you have ever seen a tyre dismounted after using the goo, you will know why I say this!

Nice place Brojees, a tad difficult to see that "Yellow Brick Road" but nice!!

Mum could do with a visit from a double glazing rep!! And a quick check over with a Geiger counter wouldn't go amiss.:goofygrin:
