Very nice ebeth. Are you the cool uncle? I had one of them that used to ride around the fields in Ballymun with me on the back of his mx.

I screamed into work today in record time. -1c in Dublin, Is it just me or do scooters love the air being a bit frosty. Bastard was up on the back wheel every chance it got

I added my 12V Outlet. Made a suitable hole in the knee cover on the left hand side and fitted the outlet. Ran the wiring in the legshield void and under the footwell back to the battery.

Also connected up the turn signal sounder that I've been meaning to do for a while. Connected straight into the wiring for the indicators using Scotch Locks. Piece of piss and no more than 10mins to do. Most of that time was in dismantling the toolbox.

Today I.....
Today I did a 78 mile round tripper to visit a friend who has a farm. She supplied me with 2 gallons of fresh milk, a pound of home-made butter and a dozen fresh multi-coloured eggs. She was so tickled that I travelled so far on steep curvy mountain roads that she gave me the butter for free.
I have to drive very carefully with all that swag, as I do not yet have a top-case or a rear rack. Inventive shopping bag placement and a dozen eggs stuck down the front of my jumper/sweater save the day.

All the best,
Sir Paul

P.S. We just had some snow too, so the roads were a bit slick in places and where they weren't slick they had "chat", from the snow ploughs, up the middle of each lane.
"Chat" is the local name for the salty rock put down by the snow plows to melt the snow. It is a small gravelly rock that makes the road a bit treacherous.

..gave the bike a good spraying (clean), although it was bloomin freezin and as I did it on the back patio, I have inherited an ice rink, and the chickens got sprayed.

The bike is nice and clean now though...

i've spent the last few days trying to dry fit my VBB fender on my PKXL2 fork, with no luck. I decided I needed an easy "win" so I installed the steering column lock and made sure it worked.
