Winter is meant to be the season for fettling the bike but, unfortunately, in my world there is alway something else to do. The priority at the moment is to get the camper van sorted for a trip further south over Christmas but even getting to this is proving testing. Last weekend was spent chopping firewood - which should have been done months ago, and clearing a few other repair jobs from the workbench to make space for the camper chinese diesel heating project. With a bit of luck progress should be made this coming weekend!
