DAY 14 – NEW TYRE AND SERVICE

Another cold day in Blighty, Guess what the postman delivered to me at 09.30…..A shinny new bank card, only 23 hours after ordering a new card I had it in my hand, excellent service.

I arrived early at the bike shop so I could look around at all the goodies in stock that I cant get in Turkey, I found some tyre slime and a handlebar brace. My tyre arrived at midday from the suppliers and the mechanic set about the old girl.

I Had a new Metzler tyre plus oil change and filter, the wheels were also balanced and the tyre filled with slime, hopefully that means no punctures, the mechanic had a look over the bike and said everything was OK, nothing needed doing. So far we have covered just over 5000Km, the oil does not need changing but I wanted it done, look after the engine and it will look after you !!
