Rubbing Salt

This morning I was hobbling around and doing bits of repairs to the bike.

Whilst carrying a 2 L jug of water, I sneezed. This instantaneously segued into a scream and I poured a large slurp of water into my socket set which was open and on the road.

Re: Episode 955 - A New Hope

Changed lights / instruments / screen bracket. Re-fitted instrument panel.

Fitted new horn and gave bottom yoke a wipe over while I was in there.

That'll do for today,

Managed to get it into neutral with the help of mister water-pump-pliers.

Removed mirrors, headlights and all fairing.

The 'Y' bracket supporting all this has been narrowed from 33 cm to 30.
