I think I'll definitely do it just for the extra space it'll give me. Can just have an overhead pipe in the shed I can hook tools up to :D

Not exactly a big run between garage and shed either (about a 2ft gap) and I'll already be running power from there so its a no brainer :thumb:


Here's an artists impression I had commissioned at great expense :lol:

Use an external on/off switch on the outside wall of the garage, have a hole in the shed with a flap opposite said switch, and use long stick to turn on and off :lol: :thumb:

I have a pretty long breaker bar, would that do in place of the stick? :scratch:

Have you seen the TFT? :lol: It's like they materialised a kid from 1986 through some time matter portal and asked him what the future might look like. Does it play Space Invaders? Probably. I'm sure as shit the bike plays the theme to Stranger Things when you fire it up.
No wonder Triumph won't sell you a bike!

They've sussed that you're one of those that's always moaning! :lol:

I've been given a date now, but you're right, there's probably a photo of me in the shop urinal.

Going to mother-in-laws on Monday to cut her hedges as someone's got her trimmers and she thought it was me (it's not!) I plan to see what else I can fit in car from the shed while I'm there.

She has also said her petrol lawnmower isn't working properly. It'll run but doesn't move forward like it should. I've no experience with the self propelling kind, (mine is a push it yourself model :lol: ). Google has told me they have a drive belt inside which could of snapped.

Anyone worked on them before? Does it sound like I'm on the right track?

I'll have a look while I'm up there but will probably need to bring it home to have a proper look
I can put whatever I want on my sig as Hoggs isn't around to change it

My last petrol mower had a clutch drive which needed the lever pulled in to make it drive forward. You might want to check the cable etc before you dive into drive belts or anything else internal.
