As promised the (few) piccies I've got..
Image
my saviour (Kylie) staying in view
Image
Oh bugger she's disapearing....I'm gonna get stuck soon....and I did
Image
Dave (damrabbit) on "that" lane
Image
Dave again
Image
the puddle that Cheekychick nearly lost the CB aerial in
Image
the view on another lane (happy valley i think)
Image
again a few moments later
Image
and again...do you think I'm obsessed?
Image
apparently there is 3 fronteras in front of me? where have the other 2 gone?
Image
apparently Wales is a lot bigger than you think...didn't realise that it was so high.

I know that i should have taken more photo's, but I was more worried about how Sweary Mary was doing most of the day. Luckly she only suffered minor damage....

lost a checker plate off drivers step,
dent and bent both steps,
broke an indicator mounting,
bent the towbar electrics,
developed a "blow" on the back box
Increased oil leak around sump area

but thankfully she's still alive and got me home in good time and got me to work and back ok.

(sorry to hear that some of you weren't so lucky)

I've just watched the video of Sweary Mary coming down "that" lane, and I can't remember the last time I enjoyed soiling myself. :D :D
can't wait till the next time...need to do some work first, so we are no longer a standard fronty

It was more knocked off than nearly lost, i forgot that you can never really lose it due to the long length of cable attached to it.......guess who hasn't got a CB.......I've got me hand up :oops:

Update on the sustained damage to mi standard shorty

bull bars aren't straight any more...mind I'm not sure they ever were...or it could have been because i had to be dragged off a pebble a couple of times..

That will be a semi seizure,not a good sign practically speaking the minimum you are looking at is a re-bore with the associated new oversize pistons & rings,it would also be prudent to to have the head crack tested & skimmed as not all damage is not immediately obvious. :wink:
