Old Friend

Swung by Ron Compton's just now to see if they could tighten my loose right-hand mirror, and what should I see in the workshop but my old scooter - with a dirty great dent in the side panel.

My poor baby!!

I felt quite tearful, though that could have been partly down to the news that Nexus mirrors are unretightenable and require replacing at £90 a throw.

Ah well. None of my three previous scooters survived to be handed on, so I'm glad some learner's running around on it.

This song makes me think of galahadwarhorse :)
