After my second puncture in two weeks I decided to have solid tyres put on my scooter. I'm paranoid about ending up stranded miles from anywhere, just me, the dog and an immobile scooter. Anyhow to cut a long story short the guy fitted the tyres yesterday.
I went to take the dog out this morning half asleep as usual. The wind was blowing the shed doors shut but I set off for the ramp anyway intending to push the doors open with the rear of the scooter. I seemed to be meeting a bit of resistance so I applied extra power.
Ummmmmm the engineer had moved the scooter from its normal central position and the resistance was coming not from the door but the shed wall. I now have a bent shed and a nice rip in the foam on the scooter handle bars but the tyres are great!
