On The Road Again…

His Lordship is mobile once more…

I BoomBikehad to give in trying to get my old bike going for now, time ran out, but thanks to my lad, who tracked this one down, I took the plunge. Virtually same bike as my original one, this is a year older, so I’ll hopefully be able to use bits from it if necessary.

Summer 2013 looks like it’s going to be spent out and about as much as possible. It’ll just be good to go out without umpteen layers on. I look the Michelin Man…

“Life Will Find A Way”….

She’s sat, unused, under a tarp for 6 years…..

The Bike...

Both my uncle and brother have had a go at waking her from her slumber, but to no avail….

I’ve spent 2 weekends attempting the same, to no response, and as I was about to throw in the towel, and consign her to history and an ending at the scrap heap, as the rainclouds appeared above…. as I attempted one last option, all other reasons for no response seemingly more elusive than ever…. as I undertook the removal and final strip of the carbs, and a rush job to get them back in before I had to leave…..

…. the beast fired up and growled once more……

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Dylan Thomas
