New idler pulley fitted due to the fact it would whine from time to time, although a little squirt of WD40 would silence it again. Better to have a new one on there though

Having developed air leaks in 3 of my ACS Type III wheels/tyres and with no sign of punctures, I've 4 new valves on the way. Exciting times

I'm also replacing the front brake lines which have seen better days. A cleanup and a new coat of paint would probably see them last another couple of years, but might as well do the job properly

I took my MC off the road for a couple of months this year in order to move it's MOT expiry day to one NOT in the middle of winter - it sailed through the test again yesterday. So, so good to drive it again

Booked in for a service next week.

Nice to have a Mercedes-AMG GT pull alongside us in the MC on the M1 today and give the car a thumbs up

Well what a perfect day for the MC to reach 72,000 miles... beautiful sunshine and it seems most people have headed in to Leeds to watch the final day of the Tour de Yorkshire. Thank you most people

Just got the car back from service. While, by the book it should have been an Inspection II service, my indy suggested that with 3 service lights showing, and only 1000 miles covered since the last service, that it made sense to just do an oil service and change the brake fluid this time, without resetting the service indicators
