I needed to bring the Z up to London this morning from home (I am still technically a London Biker as I do most of my riding in London - just choose not to live there any more… ) Anyway set of from Cheltenham @ 6am and was pottering along to Oxford when the clutch cable went stiff and then a few miles later it parted. I managed to get to the services on the A40 as I thought I might have a long wait.
Called the AA at 7am, 7:18am van arrives, nice chap called Steve fitted a temp. clutch cable & I was off by 8 - wonderful!
I am sure that some of it was luck, because I have had a couple of long waits, but this time - perfect, well worth the money.
Ah another Cheltenham (onian?)
Good to hear that… with the RAC when I got caught in Cheltenham (admittedly at my flat on a Bank Holiday lunchtime) they said it would take 4+ hrs for someone to get to me… apparently because of the M5 stretch there it’s very difficult to get vehicles out… I’m sure mine was a one off but in any situation 4+hrs seems a bit excessive!!!
Yup, another Cheltonian (well Cleeve Hill ‘onian’). I like the concept of rush hour in Cheltenham compared to London
Except for race week when it’s just as bad especially round your part of town!
So do you commute to London? :w00t: I’ve always wondered myself if it’s possible
Even during the race week it is only like a quiet day in London…
I work at home 2 days & then 3 days in London, staying overnight. I use the coach as it is much cheaper than the train, but could not do it everyday.
