A cold, cloudy ....but dry day.... four of us set off from Spoons, by the end of the day we were eight.

If you are lucky and there is anyone close to you that can do a pressure test, and a bit of brazing, the repair is pretty cheap. It cost me a tenner.


Whilst the rad is off, get yourself to B&Q get some chicken mesh, and lock wire it to the rad........ :wink:

There are some pictures in my profile on my 750.  Does the job for a tenner!

I learnt that petrol tastes worse than diesel :tongue:........ but not as bad as antifreeze

That's interesting... So if for some bizarre reason I'm ever forced to drink one or the other, I'll choose diesel :lol:

I thought antifreeze was supposed to be sweet.....

Do any of the group carry the most essential piece of kit ... ie; a kettle, because as sure as eggs are eggs, i bet Dave C has got the odd cake stashed somewhere, :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

Aye, usually in my belly! :winkie: And judging by some of the photos of me on here, the cake eating will need to be curtailed...

Good group!

One person carries some hose, just in case, someone else has some metal putty, no doubt there were some puncture repair kits as well, but not needed this time!

Sounds like a quality group of bikers!

 

 

Thanks for that .  .:smile.. yes, it is a quality group of bikers .... and yep, there is a puncture repair kit in my rucksack too. :winkie:

Thanks for the info mate ..... as mentioned - I think the putty has probably done a fairly permanent fix .... but yes, I will be sorting out a guard for the radiator.:winkie: ..... I don't know why manufacturers don't have them fitted as standard in the first place :mad:.....( I know loads of folk who have had holed radiators).  

They are always looking at ways to improve 'next year's new model - well, there is an obvious one! - Fit a bloody guard on the radiator!

Cheers ...... yes, both Jimmy and I had bad luck ...but got off with it relatively lightly and lucky that we had a hose and putty with us....otherwise there would have been much more hassle and delay sorting it. :winkie:
