Bike Battery

Thursday, May 25th, 2006

Brilliant! I finally did some useful motor mechanic maintenance last night. My bike battery water was really low so after taking the side panels off my bike and removing the battery I filled it up with deionised water and checked the battery charge. This might not sound like a big deal but it was the […]

Love London

Thursday, May 18th, 2006

One of the reasons I love London is that you can bicycle around in knee high boots, a bright orange skating helmet, red Cuba baseball top with a bike basket and no body blinks an eye (in fact white van drivers still pretend they haven’t seen you). Yesterday when I motorcycled to work it took […]

Motorbike Maintenance

Wednesday, May 17th, 2006

I just got back from my motorbike maintenance class tonight. We had two weeks off as our tutor had a bereavement in the family. If that wasn’t bad enough the poor bloke also managed to write off his motorbike when a van pulled out without looking. The two week break was good for me as […]

Bike back

Monday, May 15th, 2006

My bike is finally back on the road. I picked it up on Saturday and rather than following my mates car to Brighton for a bbq I decided I needed a non-pressure weekend and had the type of weekend I love living in London for. Saturday morning I went to the library across the road […]

Good news

Friday, May 12th, 2006

I just phoned Motoden www.motoden.co.uk and my bike should be ready to be picked up today! On a totally different topic. I don’t think I can express in words how much I love the summer weather. During my walk to work this morning I ended up jogging between Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens and then […]

Summer's Started

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

Thanks to all those that came to my bbq on Sunday. I believe it was the fullest I have ever seen the backyard which was nice as the weather had been forecast for rain. My school hood friend who is visiting said it was one of the more eclectic groups of people she has come […]

More mishaps

Saturday, May 6th, 2006

My bike was finally ready to be picked up this morning seven weeks after dropping it off at the dealership. When I picked it up engine would not idle without cutting out so it was a forty minute wait for it to be fixed. Something had happened when they had jet washed it. I had […]

Putting things into perspective

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2006

Bike still isn’t back from the bike shop and I will be missing the ELAM May maintenance workshop this evening. The next two weeks of my motorbike maintenance classes on Wednesday night have been cancelled and my request for a sabbatical has been turned down. Work will kindly see if there is a job for […]
