:lol: I've always liked the Scene in the Movie "The Boys From Brazil" were the Dobermans rip Gregory Peck to pieces before being told to stop ☹️

It was only a film, it wasn't real.

Woohoo! It's registered!!
Spoke to a nice lady at the DVLA today (after 3 minutes of useless 'press this number', 'press that number') and another seemingly age waiting, that the T200 is registered and the docs were sent out last Friday. As they must have got them the Friday before, very quick service, so full marks for that bit.
However (there's always a 'however' isn't there?) they can't tell me what the registration number because of data protection.
I said 'But it's my data, and I promise not to tell anyone'.
'No, sorry, we can't do it so as to keep your information secure' said the very welsh voice. 'Is there anything else?'
I said 'no thankyou' and hung up.
WTF is wrong with people who work in government departments? :?
I nearly said 'organisations', but that would imply being organised I suppose.
My head hurts and there's a dent in the wall now. Image

Had a run to the local bike shop where they do number plates and fitted it there so it had one for the journey home :o
Still smoking quite a lot, so it needs a good run for a clearout.
I did notice that the front end is a bit wobbly, and when I got home, noticed that the tyre wasn't on quite right. Fairy liquide'ed it and put about 60psi in and it popped into position nicely. Dropped the pressure after that!!
Spun the wheel and it appears the rim is slightly squiffy, so I nipped it back to the bike shop for him to true it up. Seems OK now, so weather permitting, it'll get a road test tomorrow and see how it performs.

Nice run to Squires last Thursday and nearly got caught in a rainstorm on the way home, so hid under a bridge until it stopped. Knackered fork seals (bits of oil on the front tyre) made for a steady ride home! Tenner for a full set means another job 'soon'.
