cold november rain

rain indeed!,england is getting a hard time of it this now..,i feel sorry for people having there homes flooded...,id be gutted if it happened to my home,worse if it was the garage...,the railway passes my house and is in a cutting so hopefully when armageddon happens the water will go down there!,
i was up 6am to check out the window,stars to the north and east and none to the southwest as forcast the big front was moving in,the heavens opened by 7am,i was dreaming of a good sky to go film at glentress but that soon went out the window...
8am i wandered out to the workshop with a cuppa and it was quite dark outside...

i even thought about just getting geared up ang going out locally and even put a rear crudcatcher thing on the 29er..i actually hate these things and always end up catching my leg on them or they rattle or loosen and drag on the tyre,i found this one minus the post clamp at glentress,another old reflector mount got it fitted,at least the name matches the bike!...

did some needed maintenance to the commuter...

buying a workshop stand was one of the best things ive done,saves alot of hassle,no more trying to do everything upside down!...

trued up the back wheel,using another smaller handlebar mount plastic reflector bracket on the chainstays,these things are handy..., note the old school brooks spoke key...

deciding to give riding a miss today with the awful weather i visited the parents after an aquaplaneing drive into edinburgh to buy chain wax for beachriding at two wheels motorcycles and caught up with friends who work there and had a look at the nice and shiny new triumph bonnieville scrambler motorcycles which i will never afford to buy,heres a customised one i like that i found on flickr...steve mcqueen eat your heart out...
