  2. Why is it...

    Why is it that I run into ALL the student drivers and pensioners in the area on the one night when I'm nursing the bike home on a one-strand clutch cable that won't quite disengage the clutch anymore? Never ceases to amaze me how spooked some people seem to get from something as simple as a...

  5. Fingers crossed!

    Back in May I posted about my noisy water pump and the tappet sounding noise it made from cold. I tried new coolant as suggested, no joy, noise still there. I decided to monitor it and see if it got any worse, which it did, gradually. On Saturday I set about taking the pump apart to inspect...
