As you know I had a couple of days to go see the daughter. Best start with an apology as there's not much in the way of content, you know I don't stop unless I have to as it was a boring blat down to the ferry and back.
But once or the other side I dumped the bike and gear and off to the pub we go.
Samantha says Hi. As you can see lovely weather although the wind was a bit keen.
These are from the south west coast. We travelled along part of the route which will be the IOW TT. Riders won't have time to enjoy the views though.
Samantha and Matt said hi.
Stop off for dinner in the hot sun and than onto Gods hill, doesn't get much more picturesque than this.
Stopped for petrol where you have to tell the "attendant" how much you put In as there's no screen to tell her in the shop, but they did have this old gem in there.
Sorry, could hardly see the window reflection on the phone.
We then stopped off at the "shop" where Matt got his Bandit. He'd told me of this place before with bikes and part over 2 floors of this unit and he now spilling out into the surrounding area. As always with me the basted decides to have a holiday, back June the 3rd. Gutted.
We had a quick stop at Robin Hill, where Matt works and then back to their house.
Don't think I've mentioned that they like on a street which it more akin to something Bob and fed would have fun on. I've been up and down it many times but this time I picked the wrong line and had Samantha on the back.
I'd switched off the engine and we were rolling down to her house when we went over a large rock, this was the result.
Engine oil contents
The fix was a trip the the local Halfords, fresh oil, some 80 grit, carb cleaner to get rid of the oil and some metal putty.
This was the result that got me home, well happy.
Got to decide on a new sump or get it off and weld. Bloody thing stunk of oil all the way home which kept me checking. Don't think I'll leave it as a repair but def got me out of trouble. It'll now be something I carry in the top box along with the tyre seal.
