July is here. Again. Pesky little bugger.

Nano last year was an abject failure.  I ran badly into some writing block, didn't like what I'd written and just couldn't get any further.  So that's another one biting the dust.  Hopefully this year I will have less on in November and can put some more effort into it.  Of course, it would help if I put some planning effort in between now and then as well.

In the meantime I've been busily modifying my road bike.  As it is 20+ years old the plastics were shot and it was either impossible or too expensive to get new ones.  So I've gone for a streetfighter conversion instead, stripping it back and slapping on lots of nice new bits.  Currently I'm building an undertray to hold some wiring and electrical components that were hidden under the fairings.

So far it's gone from this:


To this (sorry about the quality, better outside shots coming when the weather is nicer)

Plenty of work still to come but it's looking rather nice.
