Red Hot Marley

Cracking day out yesterday up at Red Marley. Not too many crashes this year either. Met up with a few folk and enjoyed the sunshine and cider. Some of the young uns were giving the old guard a good run for it.

Today I finally installed the Yamaha DSP-E1000 in my HiFi. I'm lucky in that I inherited a lot of good, not necessarily great, stuff from my Dad. The DSP was part payment for some work I did years ago and has sat unloved for too long. Now it's in and I'm am absolutely loving it. The vinyl has been dragged out and the neighbours are hearing DJ Shadow as it should be heard.

Been out on the pushiron trying to find routes to ride the Ten on. Sometimes going that little bit extra gives you a great reward.

Sunday was RHS show Cardiff, and then some gardening. It pleases me when all the seedlings are coming to the time of being able to be transplanted.

Ash from the BBQ is my first wave of anti-slug measures...

Fun in the sun

Warm today, had a pile of Suzuki, HEL, Pro-Bolt and Renthal goodies to go on the bike.
It was a day of doing all the little jobs; torque arm, painting brackets, buying odd stainless bolts. That and getting a red neck from the sun. So just before the BBQ was set light the jobs done today amounted to-
Engine casing bolts all sorted and cut to size.
Torque arm and rear caliper hanger tidied, stripped and painted.
Sprockets fitted.
Footrests assembled and fitted.
Brake lines fitted.
Battery box stripped and painted.

Was a good day.
