If you have accidentally stumbled across these pitiful dribblings, you join me a few days before the Scottish Motorcycle show. The kick off to the biking world in Scotland. Its been a long hard winter and the weather has taken its toll on me and the black pig.

Let me introduce you to the black pig, a G650GS single cylinder trail type bike. They are a cheap bike only £5000 new, and while the design is OK they are built from cheaply manufactured components that will not stand up to wear and tear.   It has become a constant struggle to keep running, the list of parts requiring replacement is extensive. However a small fire has solved all the problems.

Well the black pig lives again, new wiring loom was close to £1000 so looked unlikely it would fixed. Say hello to Ebay and a wiring loom from USA , did not fit!!!. Got one from UK and it went up in smoke. Finally got one from Australia, it was for an ABS model but had all the right connections. Fitted tested and working. SO time for an Oil and filter change and a check over for the MOT
