SHEDS
« on: 18 February, 2020, 02:08:10 PM »
I have just finished Henry Cole's book A Bikers Life ,By heck he's had a interesting life.
But the interesting chapter on Sheds had me smiling I defy anybody with a Shed /Workshop
not to find a affinity with his words.
To this end I have spent the morning in my shed ,wood burner lit coffee percolator Dalek bubbling away on the hot plate radio 2 on stripping and replacing the carbs on my CB400T AGAIN!! 40 year old bikes are a pain sometimes the good news is she runs and I have been up and down the lane only six more weeks till she is Tax and MOT exempt  almost free biking YEA!

A woodburner in the shed - what a wonderful idea.
Red MK II with full luggage, MRA screen, hugger, crash bungs, heated grips and Autocom.
CB1300SA with a few bits.

Happily the petrol spill did not  co-inside with me being in the Shed at the time. You know they only happen when your back is turned.
Although I did have to leave the doors and windows open to get rid of the fumes, storm Dennis and the accompanying winds did the trick.
