    The real thrift is in getting your kids to mop up the oil spill with their clothes then docking their pocket money for sleeping on the job!

    Thought you'd have put a bit of cardboard or carpet down for her to lay on Mr. O

    I did !!!! Did it over the bit of drive that has just stones down, so wouldn't make a mess, if she spilt the oil, so nice bit of carpet down to protect my old knees, back, elbows...........

    I use old ice-cream tubs to catch oil, easier to clean and store compared to a 'proper' drain tray.

    The breeze blocks were because I hadn't had the chance to go and fetch my big jack and axle stands from work!

    Hate to mention it, but someone has stolen your wheels and missus while the oil was draining.

    That was 2 days later, after she (my daughter) had spent the time scraping and wire brushing all the rust off the suspension and brakes. All waxoyl'd and painted now. She's done a cracking job of it.

    Just told her to paint the calipers like it was her doing her nails !!!!:p:laughing::laughing::laughing:

    Who needs sons, when your daughter is a total petrolhead:cool:

    I tried to find about the tyres causing the most accidents, but did not find any at least for the USA.
    According to the 1981 Hurt Report — the largest study ever conducted on motorcycle accident causation — alcohol is a factor in 50 percent of all bike wrecks.
    From the Hurt study:
    In single vehicle accidents, motorcycle rider error was present as the accident precipitating factor in about two-thirds of the cases, with the typical error being a slide out and fall due to over braking or running wide on a curve due to excess speed or under-cornering.

    Good info here:

    She's got a pair, just doesn't wear them. Not cool, I presume. :confused:
