This works well on the Ducati forum, so what have you been up to today?

I've given the garage a good clean out, and put up new LED lighting, from the gloomy dullness it's now finally properly lit! Happy days!



What did you do today?

Not exactly just today. I've been at it since the end of March. Gutting the room, repairing water damage, setting it up for a permanent cure, then refurbishing it.
But today another milestone - the vanity gets connected to the sewer.

Meanwhile Nell sits waiting for it's leaking valve to get lapped in :mad:
And Tax's broken engine waits to be rebuilt.

Some transport and in traffic, never over 3/4 on the temp, that said - Alex put some magic coolant on and mapped the fans for warm conditions :D

Decided to take a nostalgia trip and got a KFC zinger tower burger on the way home. Bleugh, don't remember them being that bad.

Expecting a delivery from Germany today (Ducati fuel pump) and picking up some oil for benelli service. Was going to take it to Forza Italia but they are booked until the middle of next month!

I took a look at my brother's old Morini 3 1/2. It hasn't run for eight years. The carbs were so gummed up I had to free the slides up with a screw driver. Nonetheless it started second kick and I should be able to get it MOT ready this weekend. Result.

Lovely jolly out to Oakley Bike Club this evening on the TRE. Using a few more revs now, the bike is just feeling better and better. First service at the weekend, will be able to take it to 9000 after that :)

My Viewfinder.

Loaded up the plein air gear and went off looking for a view to paint.

I encouraged my friend to take his Kawasaki kh 250 for an Mot today and it passed! He was supposed to take it for its Mot yesterday but made a weak excuse why he did not go. I helped him set the carbs and sort some electrical issues at the weekend, the bike has been off the road for the best part of 5 years. All that riding missed there should be a law against it!
