On a more positive note, the scooter engines finished running in. 500 miles and feeling pretty good. Can cruise two-up at 60mph with few problems. Needs a change of gearbox oil and we’re all sorted.
On a less positive note, the bloody sprint rack worked its way loose and scratched up the paintwork……
Spent a happy few hours at this event on Sunday. Was going to chuck it down so no camping for me and the missus. Some good bands – Blank Generation did some old-school covers and Ruder Than U did ska covers as well as their own material. Family-friendly Rally so lots of kids, lots of non-scooter people so a large and mixed crowd.
Finished my coaching stint as Head Coach of Five Ways. I did enjoy it (on the whole) and I definitely grew my skills and capabilities as a coach. Downside was loads of stress due to selection issues, player egos and an overwhelming sense that I was taking it more seriously than the players were. I’m taking a break and I’ll see whether I go back to it. There are other things I’d like to do with my time so I’ll see how the next 18 months develops.
I did have a great time at the players awards and received a great gift from the club.
