Spent a few hours cleaning the bikes and pumping up tyres etc. Worst one to clean is the Thunderbird with chrome spoked wheels with large disc brakes so it is even more difficult. Using my portable Li-ion pump which will pump up about 8 tyres that need topping up. Set it then leave it to switch itself off when it is done. Thunderbird not been out for about 7 weeks and had some clutch drag. It will need a run Tomorrow.
Emptied the A65 engine of its engine oil which gets past the pump and put it back in the tank. 2.5 litres in the sump this time. At least the crank will not rust. Just a couple of months of warm riding left. Been a good year for reliability but also a lot less miles of course.
Thank you for your support...
