Punctures and things

Went out for breakfast yesterday.  We had the idea of a drive on the bike through the local villages and then stopping somewhere, anywhere for a quick breakfast. Well the first half of the ride was fine and we found a local restaurant open for breakfast. So far so good. Returning about 3 kilometers from home the engine started making a very strange noise. Stopped only to find it was not the engine but the rear type had completely collapsed. Heavy things to push are choppers with a flat tyre. Fortunately nearby was a puncture repair place. But he could not fix to it as the tyre was old and completely gone.  Add to which he did not have a replacement!

But we were lucky.  We called 'Yar', Wanna's brother who was actually doing some work for us at our place to come and collect us in the pickup. As I said earlier the bike is heavy. But we managed get it in the back and off to the local chopper shop we went. Should be back on the road Friday.
