After a hideous day of terrible decisions by the top brass, I came out to find our 70yr old caretaker admiring the bike. We chatted about classics various and it even started first kick despite a gathering audience. Very pleasing.
A pleasant ride home. I've now sussed both hot, cold and warm starting procedures and all is well. I'm going to spend the weekend forgetting about what I learned today and enjoying a bit of garden, countryside, garage and ghost story time.
