Done something rather silly this afternoon

After going over to Onyerbike to get the lead I so desperately needed to fit my charger, I found another lead looking decidedly similar to the one I needed on the garage floor:shock:

Do I send the spare lead that I supposedly didn't have back and admit I'm a dumbass or do I keep stum??

short of being.....

knocked off the bike and hospitalised,the most likely things that will spoil your day out on the bike are (in no particular order) punctures,low sun,fading light,electrical faults,loose fittings,broken cables,blown bulbs.All of which can be rectified with a few items carried on your person....that's the good thing about metric standardisation .Most bikes (old Brits and Harleys excepted) use standard small caliber nuts and bolts.RAC and AA.If you drive a car, brilliant.:sunglasses:

I have had one puncture, quite a slow one, topped up every garage with air as wasn't far from home. second one was knackered valve, rac guy told me to super glue it!!!!! oh how i laughed. they took to it a garage who after sorting it overtightened bolts, then had to buy a tap and dye set to make new holes, cos the other one were sheared to shit. so perhaps i will buy the bumbag :biggrin:

angled tyre valves....will cost you a  fiver each (tops) when you have new tyres fitted (good for three tyre changes) and will make air top ups a breeze(standard fit on Triumphs).

tool kit on my bike

consists of 2 allen keys:shock: What happened to the nice little black plastic roll of itsy tools under your seat.  Couldn't fit a fag paper let alone a packet.under mine.

Going to sort thru my tools and make one up today, and I need a new bumbag, the kids are moaning at the one I have now .  It's the only thing I carry apart from a haversack on outings  out.
