Ride home from work. Swoop into garage. Bike on centrestand. Trot whistling to front door. Notice big cardboard box in shed. Look at label. Touratech. Fevered scrabbling. Could it be...... it is!.... my crashbars!!
On order since November, although to be fair to the folk at Neath they were upfront from the outset that there were production delays in Germany and they couldn't give me a firm delivery date.
But no matter now. They're here.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to place them where I can sit and give them a damn good looking at, and then pop outside for a spot more capering.
