    So I just got my bike back from the dealership as it was due for a major service (belts, brake disks and the whole 9-yards - oh and the MOT).

    Two of the more interesting items that were noted on the jobsheet were:
    "Air intake contaminated with mice droppings"
    "Air filter contaminated with mouse"

    Cheeky little things! Time to get a bike-coon and hide it in there over winter :p (or lock a cat in the garage :p)

    To my defence... I have 3 bikes; it's hard to ride them at the same time :p AND it's an Italian bike... so it's more of a "fair-weather bike" than a fair-weather biker :p

    Plus... when it's raining it's nicer to sit on dry heated seat with music playing (as a pose to heated legs and listening to the rythm of the falling rain... telling me what a fool I've been)

    Mine has been standing for about a year now and the last time I took the seat off there was a mouse nest under it and they had been nibbling on the wiring.
    I think they have moved out now but there must be 100 spiders in there.
    Perhaps I will get it ruinning again one day...
