You know its been a while when!

You know its been a while when you last rode your bike when you take it out and on return find out you had a pillion on board without your knowledge. I clocked a bit of paper sticking out from under my pillion hump and when i pulled it out it looked chewed. Hmmm, key in lock remove hump to find a bloody mouse nest, bloody full it was. I aint removed it yet so i will take a picture of it. I bet  its the fastest that mouse ever went.
I aint used my bike much the past 12 months because of work children and weather. It was nice to get out today and infact it was so long since i last rode it i forgot just how fast it is, bugger me its still propper quick for a 600.
Hope your all well ratty shef,Paul ,used2be ,oldish maxi, busa, stevedj,etc etc etc and to all those of you that i have forgotten or dont know. I should logon more often but i dont for two reasons 1:TIME 2: A CRAP CONECTION. Everything takes ages n i get Pi$$ed off.
Ride safe, fastasfox.

Deep breath!

You didn't just lose us then Fastas? Paul49 and Ratbike 7 both banned, Sheff and Busa off on BikersRus forum, which I believe they started/run. Used2 got shunted on his sprint with Gill on the back, now has a V-Strom Thou. Mike 49 (Varadero,has large hands!) is having some health problems and can't ride too far.  Not met Stevedj yet, but I think he get the P ripped out of him for losing his sidestand at Kirby Lonsdale last year.  Oldish now has a GSX-R thou, and I'm still a nosey git!  Met Busa, Paul, Mike, Ratty and Oldish today at Squires, all seemed in good form

Rats

To keep the dust off my bike, I always put the cover over it.  The o/h just leaves his without worrying.

Last year we discovered that there was a rat in the garage.  Several traps, a proper clearout, and we finally got rid of it.  However, when we took the cover off my bike (it stank of rat pee) we discovered that the little b@stard had found a cosy hidyhole under the cover, and had chewed my mirror, fairing, seat pod, dash...    thankfully, the electrics were intact.

Its taken me a year to clean all that salt of my bike (its never been that dirty) :lol:.  I think the last good ride out i had was to kirby lonsdale a great day out, top weather and to top it off a great ride home across the desserted yorkshire dales.
