    A valve could be stuck open after a long layup.

    That would mean the crank would turn more than 180 degrees between the sticking positions.

    No. I'm being slightly hindered by a gyp leg. Just went out, pilled a spark plug and two of the rocker covers and and had to come back indoors. Sometimes I get 10 minutes, sometimes I dont even get as far as the kettle. I cant tell you how fucking dull that is, specially as I'm self employed

    Good judgement comes from experience.

    Experience comes from bad judgment.



    I don’t really mean I’ve got good judgment. It’s just a saying.

    Exhausts are completely rotten, but I've plated them up for now, all it needs now is a battery, a bit of fuel pipe and some petrol. And possibly a bit of tinkering.

    I need a sheet of perspex as I have the brackets for a screen, then all it needs is tartan panniers and the L plates.
