Am I back??

Postby herrman » Mon Jan 20, 2020 10:58 am

Hello all,
Well its taken me some time (its a year yesterday since Alan died) but I feel that its time to maybe start biking again. Only ridden the 12s once last year to take it for its MOT. Alans trusty old 12r is going for MOT later today and may well become my wheels of choice for the future. Hope to catch up with some of you during the coming year.

Peter.

Hi Peter

I do hope you get back into biking, I really enjoyed the Boxertrix weekends especially when we had a few 12s together. This year’s Welsh weekend is looking good 8)

Our best regards to you from both of us
Phil.

Good to hear that you are regaining your biking mojo, Peter. Would be great to see you in Wales for our weekend in May.

All the best,

Paul
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Thanks all,
Well best laid plans---12r failed its MOT nothing major just front brake fluctuation!! May well be because its been stood for so long unloved and unused.
Going into the garage later to clean calipers and discs and then have another try. It was only a short ride to the MOT but enjoyed it so I guess I'm back :D
