Stunning day in the midlands today. We've been couped up for weeks with heavy rains and miserable weather. Dug one of my airheads out after a three month layup today. Out in the sunshine for a spin only to have it coat my foot in petrol a few miles down the road. Sorted that out and came across the chap from the end of my road pushing his old rudge (he does this a lot) magneto died. a few more miles and there a beautiful Austin Healy 3000 with the bonnet up and steam billowing out. Cheerful chap "all part of it" stopped for a pissed off bloke pushing his a10 "it just died mate" 2 mile push ahead of him. 1450 Harley in a car park banging and farting on one cylinder. all us out for the first time this year. Makes you wonder why we do it to ourselves.
