And so it soon became the 13th December and Dora went to Laguna to have the latest "service bulletin" to be sorted. The side stand bolt.
The weather was around 2°C when I set off so I decided to stick to the main roads and the motorway rather than the back roads across the top of the Marsh.
Once booked in a went across the road for a bacon sandwich and a coffee. The job was done so quickly that I had barely got sat down when my phone chirruped with an SMS to say it was done!
I wasn't in any hurry. The pub was cold as well, but not a patch on the outside world.
Dora was parked outside and I took a photo quickly and then togged up and rode home. Heated grips on full power.
