    Painted up the new sill and checked fluid levels. Removed the grill and scrubbed some rust away and then put rust sealer on.

    I'll paint in tomorrow.

    Took it to Sainsbury's.
    As I was driving in a girl on a suzuki 750 was pulling out from the Fuel station and dropped the bike. She couldn't pick it up so, I stopped, put on the Hazards and went to help her. A **** in an X5 shouted to me about blocking the driveway so he received a severe round of F**ks which made the biker chuckle.
    Can you believe some people, too impatient to wait 30 seconds at the most.
    BMW = Bloody Minded ****er's !!!!

    I wish more car drivers were like that with bikers:clap2:

    Audi drivers win hands down (at least they seem to when I'm on the bike!!)

    When i had issues with the old RF unit my neighbour caught me looking in the window at 11 oclock at night to see if the red light went out on the gearbox, what is it about these cars ?
