    Had a number of plugs over the years, no problems as long as it is not too near to the side. Not everywhere will plug bike tyres so you may need to check a few places to get one that will do the job.

    Thanks Bruce!

    It'll have to wait anyway...with Chrimbo coming up and fork seals to do as well and ignition advancer to fit, there is no huge rush!

    Finally got round to taking the back wheel off.... dropped it at the Bike Shop today... they think it can be plugged successfully...

    What has this little sojourn taught me? well... don't go out on a claggy, shitty day.... my rear brake disc is a bit rusty now (should be fine with a bit of action from the sintered pads) .... the chain needs a good soak, the rear caliper looks like it's been dipped in a mudbath, general crud everywhere for a scant 30 min trot out....

    and hose the bugger down more thoroughly next time....
