    And todays trial by technology was my sat-nav insisting it's living in Andorra and refusing to move back to England. Why me?
    Luckily it's been a beautiful day, otherwise getting lost for two hours, trying to find an address in Broadstairs could have been even more worrying.

    It was a beautiful day and perfect for an adventure. I got a steak dinner out of it, so worth the effort of finding my way. It's the first time I've eaten lunch at 3pm :)

    And here we are again, the unwitting victim of technology, although strictly speaking it's all my own fault. My tracker not only tracks the bike but it also has a wealth of information that it likes to share with me, via the medium of text messages. Last week it told me that the battery was low and I ignored it as the battery isn't that old and the bike's usually on an Optimate overnight.
    Today it told me again, while I was having lunch and much to my surprise, when I stopped later in the afternoon, just outside Lewes for some fuel, it failed to start. Pushing it didn't work but jump starting it did the trick and I was able to make it home. A new battery is on charge at Laguna's overnight and I'll collect it tomorrow.
    So now I know that the tracker tells the truth and next time I should listen to it. What an idiot I am. I paid a lot of money to have the system fitted and then I ignored it. I won't make that mistake again.
