    Morning Fancy-dress Fatimas

    Drizzly. Meh.
    We are now involuntary bunny rabbit foster carers seen as Beans brought us 2 late last night. I wrestled both from him. 1 isn't looking good but is holding on. The other is lively and will get re-patriated later.
    Meeting in the land far away today. Hope the rain eases off or the drive will be 'noo very nice'. as they say in the vernacular.

    Pedals, seatpost, front wheel & handlebars might be pushing it for Stevo. I think a trip to the bike shop is in order. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Surely I just need to open the box and take out the bike? They said they'd built it yesterday :p

    Afternoon
    A bit weary after yesterdayโ€™s ride. Dogs walked and todays chores done. I might try to do some weights later hopefully without breaking myself followed by watching the cycling.

    Morning all. Early start so cba to pedal in. Just finally come up for air, won't be doing much else for the rest of the day. Lost eldest who's currently en-route to jockland with his GF and young oxo is chilling out with mates. Hopefully the OH and myself will be able to relax. Pinnos trying to be all nice saving the bunnies, but in reality they're for his lunch. Come on Stevo get it sorted.

    Hopefully not Klingon Mk II

    Started job to change fuel filter in TT. Had bought a generic replacement, which looked like an exact fit, and was claimed by supplier to be good. But, feckit, no. The fuel line retention flanges were just ever so slightly not quite right. Not great having line blow off when the HP pump kicks in...


    Cue an unscheduled trip to town to pick up OEM part. 2 hour round trip drive, 5 minute job to fit. Perfect.

    Might be some paste in the box Stevo. Donโ€™t need a stand really, put the front fork over the end of the box. Handlebars on, headset finger tight, handlebars bolts nice and snug. Out of the box, left side pedal as you sit on the bike is tightened anti-clockwise. ๐Ÿ‘

    No paste in the box. Instructions look simple enough, but might have to muck about setting-up the electronic shifters - never had a high tech bike before.
