This isn't quite what I had in mind when my wife asked me to play doctors and nurses with her.

There is no need to sully my reputation on this forum Andy.

I'm sure I'll manage it myself soon enough.  :lol:

I kind of feel the same.

Sitting in a cottage in Narbeth, but I feel like nothing has changed and we're about to repeat everything all over again.

Not making any special plans as I feel there's little point as it'll need to be cancelled anyway.

On that note, Andy you'll be seeing me Saturday as there is a Yorkshire type with a Strom in one of your cabins on the weekend.
We've planned a ride.

But apart from the basic check and needing to sort the loose head bearings I'm doing sod all to the bike yet.I think there's not much point in prepping a bike for the next 4k miles

So you're saying it's part way through a conversion to Aussie spec?

Are you open to camping now Mr Rat?

I'm not saying I need a night away from SWMBO but a night away would be nice.  :shy:

While working at a reputable dealers, we had a chinese bike in for repair, recovered after an accident and insurance authorised replacement parts.

Took 4 months to get the bits from the local also reputable dealer who promptly ordered and had to wait.
Some came in two weeks then dribs and drabs over the months.

The bike was 4 months old when it came in to us.
The lad had a loan scooter from insurance.
He traded the lexmoto pile-o-shiyt in after it had been with us for 2 months for a new CB125F.

Iirc he binned that within a few months.

Moral of the story.
If you're going to bin a bike every couple of months: buy cheap Chinese crap as you'll destroy it before any warranty claim needs to be made.

If you're less accident prone, buy Japanese and it should last fairly well.

I'll agree with Kwakboy. The Amalfi coast road is one of the best I've ridden and on scooters like the locals.

Abergwesyn pass is another and so is many of the roads between Loch Lomond and Otter Ferry we rode as a group from V-Strom forum in 2014. Just dont stop and take your lid of or the midges will get you.

I have a list in my head of the great roads around Wales, but that's a trade secret or I'll loose the following hoards from another forum.  :lol:
