Cheers Dave, truth is that if I hadn't looked at the reprom and just gone ahead following my instincts
I wouldn't have had a problem :roll: RTFM...? Pah

Well-weathered leather
Hot metal and oil
The scented country air
Sunlight on chrome
The blur of the landscape

Sorry chaps, I was being thick.

The bush was there but it was within the shock 'eye' :oops:

but boys they are tight to get back in.
patience and faith.
its not a boxer , its a 180 degree v-twin
