Pulled the alphabet twin out of winter hibernation if it runs OK may take two up to open day. Drag rollers out of shed push twin to position before I run her up ramp, I fill with Esso top stuff check I have a tank of R drain sump pop it back in top (clear as spring water) tickle top carb decide to straddle it and do a few kicks with decompressors before I get off and do the big push up onto the rollers (always a pain) then for some silly reason I decide to try a kick the beast half decompressor front pot hisses up to compression on rear full decompressor just over top and leisurely lunge..... JHC! it b****y started first kick!
This could be a strange season.

"Merest brush of a carpet slipper"?
no a proper kick but not my usual arcrobat in the air one leg drop
(in fact I think I should outlaw those in regard to my age) no it was the sort of kick those supremely confident 10000 milers give their steeds in company and ride away....

And then the bastard dies and you are lathered in sweat before it starts again.
