My Dad has a bike I know quite well, and it's sat in his shed for the last 10 months, or there abouts.

Well, I thought I'd see if it was possible to start the beast, and gathered all the toolage I could imagine I'd need. Well, I needed to pump up the tyres and find the ignition key, but...

My right leg still has it! Took about 5 mins all told, far quicker than sourceing all the tools! Only tool needed: a pair of pliers to undo the rear wheel dust cap.

Don't you just love Honda racebikes!!

:D
