You don’t stop riding because you’re getting old, but you get old when you stop riding.

No way of bodging it, believe me I've tried, I'm going to see if I can find a bolt kicking about on site and see if I can make it fit. Only issue is that it's only 2 of us and the main site manager tonight - one of them who reads ever single letter of the health and safety documents ect. Think the bolts will be too big to fit through the fins/gaps on the hanger

No snow here, replacement parts came but having problems removing the current brake lever as I can't remove the rear m/c. As the fixings are seized, just need to get the brake pedal off and she'll be back up and running soon. New footpegs though so I'll have to get them scraped into shape Wink

I gave up trying to remove the old brake lever and put on a spare that came with one of the hangers. I also lost the circlip that retains the brake lever though it should be kept inplace by the spring and masterclyinder. I gave up looking as it was so cold this morning that water had frozen inside of the work van overnight. So once again it's another bodge that'll be needing to get fixed once I get home, but at least I've now got a rideable bike again.

Work was a nightmare this morning, the other company blew their radiator. Our fire hydrant was frozen solid, battery was flat on our machine and as was the other company, the water hoses were frozen as was our ppe. The van wouldn't stay up at running temp without having the air circulation on. -3c tonight but then warming up to 0c on a night and +2 on the days.

I might go out on the bike in the morning depending on how I feel. Need to get that footpeg worn in. Next week shal be better, working stupidly early so I'll get the afternoons free to ride.
