Well that was brilliant and terrifying in equal measure!


Apologies for going quiet, I was just concentrating on battery life and making progress...


Thanks to all for the offers of support.


Write up to follow once my hands stop tingling...

I wondered about that, looks like leg warmer.

Not sure about the stirrup though.

Aye it's a cosy waterproof leg warmer complete with bib to keep the cold and wet off your chest. I hate it but it's soooo practical, it means I can commute in only jeans (well, not only jeans) all through winter.


The stirrup is for a lock to stop people thieving it.




Am I disqualified?

After spending many years in all weather's doing domiciliary care work on two wheels I have come to the theory that regardless how you look, warmth and keeping dry is key to safe riding as well as the obvious safety of protective gear too. When you get a puddle of water round your knackers it really freezes you up! Nothing more dangerous than being frozen or sodden to affect concentration

They use those leg muff things in Italy and they're all professional scooterists over there, two passengers, dogs in a basket, all that kind of thing.

For me this has got to be collection of the year.


Saw a lot of them in Paris earlier this year too.

Well flipping LOLS.


"suspect quality electrics" equates to a highly complex selection of electrical faults on the way to work at 7:30 this morning- no electric start, dead battery, non functioning left and right indicator varying between staying on and not going on at all, randomly intermittent headlight. 


I actually cannot believe that it held on for all of yesterday with out any of this happening. I reckon that if the vendor prayed for me, it was clearly only up until midnight. Cuts and all that...


It's a good job I've got another one. The Autoshite solution.

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....

      I bought this as a stopgap, its purpose has been filled, and now I need something more economical.
      Its a 2000 Mazda 323F, with a 1.8 petrol engine and auto box (4 speed with lock out in top). Its in decent enough condition, looks tidy, starts, runs and drives with no major issues, decent amount of poke when needed. MoT is till November.  Interior is very tidy and shows little wear. Leccy windows, mirrors, sunroof which all work, AC which does not. The downsides are there are 3 small chips in the windscreen, all less than 10mm. And it could do with a tyre changing on the front as its cracked with age.
      More photos when its stops raining. Oh, and economy-wise it averages around 33mpg with mixed driving, more on a long run.
      Looking for £300 for a sale, or prepared to roffle at £5 if theres enough interest, could do with shifting it relatively quickly though. I'm also up for swaps, preferably for something small, petrol and manual. Small Peugeots are a preference.
      Oh, and its in Lincoln. Sorry.
