A few minor problems emerged, the engine management warning light was permanently lighted, which according to the the manual means that it was running in “limp home mode”; and the horn wasn’t working. It is Easter Friday and we are booked to leave on a ferry from Portsmouth to Santander in Spain on Tuesday. How the hell are we going to get this sorted before we leave Tuesday? Fortunately the bike is still under warranty so the dealer has agreed to have a look at it Tuesday morning, and if it is fixed by mid day we think there is time for us to get down to Portsmouth for the 5.15 sailing. However, our other obstacle is that we haven’t received the Greencard insurance for Europe yet, it was sent by courier from Germany Thursday, hopefully it will turn up by mid day Tuesday.
This morning I took a stroll around Wimbledon early before everyone got out of bed, to take a few photos, it was cold but nice and quiet.
