Life in The Rural Retreat with a beautiful wife, three cats, garden wildlife, a camera, a computer – and increasing amounts about running

After more than six months’ hibernation, Kawasaki San fired up first time today (after a couple of coughs). The trickle charger was a wise investment. This was just as well, for tomorrow he has an MOT booked.
To celebrate, and as the sun was shining, after blowing up his tyres I took him for a thirty-mile jaunt around the Black Isle to see if any bits fell off and if I could remember to how to ride. Everything turned out fine, although the fuel gauge had failed to magically fix itself over the winter. Shame.
All that remains (assuming he passes the MOT) is to give him a clean and book a service and we’ll be all set for the summer. Maybe this is the year when he achieves a respectable mileage again.

The sun is also good news for cats, who’ve been out and about, but not for lizards. Willow insists on bringing them home to play with on the kitchen floor. Deaths are rare but traumatised reptiles will soon fill the overgrown edges of the garden.
