As you all know already, nothing is new and this blog is no exception. It's full of pictures of cars and bikes, mostly stolen from somewhere or other and the odd bit of useful & not so useful information for your enjoyment.

love-hate relationship

My shovels ignition has been playing up so i spent a good few hours today trying to get it right, including sealing an intake and exhaust leak.  I'm nearly there and then i start having problems getting it in gear, only to find i have lost a nut from the clutch outer plate, so i find another one to get me home, put it on, and ping off it shoots when i push the foot pedal. F**K, and lots of other expressive words run through my mind.
i just can t believe my luck with this bike at the moment, its just one thing after another.
I just want to ride a reliable, individual, bike.

Anyway on the plus side i got a lift home on a matchless 650, from a very helpful biker.

my piece of shit in the van- i hate you.....


  1. Hey you are not alone, keep at it, "everyone" says its worth it in the end.....

  2. the thing is Pete, how much further to the end?
    i have owned it since 2007, and for the last 1.5 years it seems there's been problem after problem.
    Evo engines are looking very appealing right now.
