    That is rotton timing but it will be fixed you will get it back on the road, fingers crossed it's not to long, can't be that bad you'd go back to work. You've got to much enjoying your selves to do yet.

    Have you seen the thread Rain in France, if it had to happen perhaps it stopped you getting wet.
