 out on the sporty again today, set off 1730 hours for a quick 60 miles, time to think, mull things over, stop at wingfield manor to warm my hands on the cylinder heads, pulled back to carsington water like a magnet at this time of year, this is the view over the reed beds looking back towards the dam, got a few things sorted in my head, going to drop the sporty down this winter for a tidy up, 25,000 miles on the clock and the old girl needs a bit of therapy, nothing too over the top, powdercoat the frame, the paints flaking off in big lumps, a legacy of riding in winter, might treat her to a set of 17" rims and some decent tyres, i've got some hubs ready to go, perhaps drop a caliper and put a big disc on, deffo need a king sportster tank, i'm sick of searching for fuel every 50 miles, daytime mot too i reckon, scrap the lights, if i get caught out i can always velcro an led headtorch to the trick carbon fibre numberboard i have planned, got to get my finger out and find a spare mz 250 engine, going to strip my race motor down and duplicate whats in there, hopefully adding a few 'little touches' that me and dangerous have in our locker, there;s nothing like cold to focus the brain.
