Still no Bike

Monday, June 12th, 2006

No exciting biking tales to tell today as the Tractor is still at the dealership. Apparently they are waiting for the carburettor manifold to be sent from the BMW supplier that they use.

Lying outside this morning trying to catch up on the work that I should have done yesterday, the doorbell rang and it was two women saying that they had been talking neighbours about the increased awareness of the effects of terrorism and asking me was I more scared now of it.
