Just got to the stage where the nights are coming too early for me.
Get home from work- and first job is to check the garden and the Chickens. By this time the wife has dinner and straight after- I used to have time to sort the bike(s) from last weekend or fit any new parts I have bought. OR even get out for a quick 20 miler to see if the legs do work.
Not now. At 8 PM it was dark tonight. But I have this ride in a few weeks with a placard on the back of the bike. So tonight was the designated night to take it out on a rough trail to see if the placard if going to stay on the bike. I think it is OK but I will have to check out the fixings tomorrow night. Even with the lights in the shed- I can't check it out fully.
AND one of the new parts I fitted last night- was a new lamp bracket for Boreas so I can still get some night riding in- providing the wife gets dinner a bit later and The twin 5w led still has enough life in the battery for a ride.
