Now drinking beer, it's been a long weekend
I'm a bit slow. Only just got the reference to making a plywood jigsaw over the weekend.
Back in the blue. No bikes.....

It worked for about 30 mins and then went to black again, I'll go back round the new caps with the iron again just in case there's a bad joint but they all look fine to me.
Little update - poked around it with a multimeter, everything seemed fine. Fuses all intact, coils all fine, diodes seem to resist one way more than the other, couldn't figure it. Re-melted all the new joints, added some solder on top of a trace that was bare copper in one corner but appeared to conduct just fine, re-melted a connector pin that didn't look too clever, put it back together again and it didn't work. Turned it off and on again a few times and now it works!? Bloody electronics. I look forward to it failing just when I really don't want it to..

I will hopefully be booked onto a Bike Safe course if they can work out the voucher I have received from TFL. Their website isn''t accepting it :(

Last sailing race of the year this evening :(

Fitted a solenoid motor to my model train points, which worked first time :D

Going off into N Wales with a couple of mates tomorrow, lunch at Rhug then Bala and onto Beddgelert, back over the Denbigh Moors.

My mates are still in lay by miles back 'cos they missed a turning and decided to wait for me to go back for them. I thought scoffing a bacon butty was a better idea.

I'm going to ride my bike at some point!
Apart from that we have no real plans for this weekend (next weekend is heavy! :lol: )

The last time we stopped at Rhug it was so busy we drove off again!

My mates caught up but I had to have an extra portion of chips while I waited.

Tomorrow I've got to take the wife to Albox to the Brit shops! And she wants to stop off in the f@cking garden centre on the way.

Sunday I'll be out though......maybe an abandoned railway station! It'll be something dark for sure!

What you guys doing?

If the weather is half decent I'm just going out on me 'Arley with no particular place to go other than away from Coventry . Actually I might head up over Clear Hill , down the Vale of Kerry to Newtown , down to Llangurig and take it from there . I could go to the seaside and up to Harlech then back home via the A5 or down to Rhayader and back home via Leominster and Malvern . Or it could piss with rain and I could spend the day grinding the rust off the ER5 between showers .

We are heading out on the new Harley first to J&S Finedon then over to the Sportsbike shop M.K in search of some odds and sods for our impending week off at the end of the month.
Cheers
