Lazy rest day today. I have done some blog updates.

There was blue sky this morning. I can't prove it as I didn't take a picture. I was just about to go out and do a check over Gráinne
 but now it's raining, oh well I'll have another coffee and do another blog post.

It will probably be fine again in a few minutes.

Holy bejezzz an hour later & it's still raining and now a bit heavier. I should have done Gráinne this morning.

So my relaxing day turned into a frantic afternoon.

It didn't look like it was going to stop raining but it was only light so I went out to check Grania.

Saw a Peacock. Decided to start to wear in my new boots.

First reconnected the tyre pressure monitors to my GPS as they weren't connecting.
Then did a general check around, checked clutch & brake reservoirs, all good. Checked engine oil, oh 💩 can't even see any, damn, damn, damn why didn't I check it on day 1.
Got a cab to take me to the bike shop, awesome in peak hour, grabbed oil, bought 2 litres, just in case, back to the hotel, it's raining even harder now (there's Murphy 😁).
She took about 300ml, over bought on the oil (better to be safe than sorry).
I have never had to top up oil before, but then again I suppose I have done roughly double my yearly kms since being over here.
