Replaced a broken wheel on the power washer.

Only been broken for about the last six years.

Not that I am struggling to find things to do.....

Had a bit of a sad day today.
Went round to what had been the family home of 58yrs for probably the last time!
Dad went ten years ago and mum two.
it was initially hard to start ripping apart their home to do it up but after a while, it was just a house.
Contracts are exchanging Friday so went to clear out the last bits of 'us'.
Reversing away, I paused for a last photo with the sold sign up and I actually came over quite emotional.
It felt like the final part of the grieving was coming out.

Get a pork shoulder joint & put it in your slow cooker, add one & a half cans of cola & some barbecue sauce, leave it for several hours & then use a couple of forks to separate it, beautiful pulled pork,

Go onto BBC cookery website & type in slow cook Jalfrezi, tastes just as good as if bought from a top Indian restaurant.

Spent a couple of hours in the garage doing some more work on the ZZR. Front wheel out, forks out, yokes out to grease up the bearings. As you can see not much grease on the bearings. I cleaned up the calipers making sure the pistons are clean and moving freely.

Finally, the wheel bearing covers on the front wheel have the same issues as all bikes i.e. Where the seal runs it can cause a groove to wear over time. A clever forum member has found a way to offset the wear. He makes titanium replacements with a lip to help keep grease inboard, along with anodised black titanium covers that further protect from road rash.
