Dear Britbikers,

The other day I set off for work, leaving my wife in the house watching the TV as usual.

I fired up my 1963 T100 hadnít gone a hundred yards down the road when my engine conked out and the bike juddered to a halt. I walked back home. When I got home I found her in the bedroom. I couldnít believe my eyes. She was parading in front of the wardrobe mirror dressed in my underwear and heavy bike boots, and she was wearing my old helmet and leather gloves.

I am 34, my wife is 34 and we have been married for 12 years. When I confronted her, she tried to make out that he had dressed up in my outfit because couldnít find any of her own underwear. But when I asked her about the boots and helmet, she broke down and admitted that she had been wearing my clothes for six months. I told her it had to stop, or I would leave her.
She was made redundant from her job six months ago, and says she has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless. I love her very much, but ever since I have her the ultimatum, she has become increasingly distant, and I don't feel I can get through to her any more. Please can you help?

Had you recently polished the bike? The petrol cap vent could be blocked with dried up polish?
NB. this thread is worthless without pictures laugh

well, once these old girls get past thirty years they need a little more attention. Time to dust off the ol' probe and check all her circuits. Check out all the in & out orifices and make sure they're unobstructed. This kind of difficulty often results from a lack of attention to the many little details that keep them happy. Throw lots of time energy and money at them. When all else fails, seek professional advice. Always works for me.
good luck, Alan.

The problem is now solved, it was down to faulty wiring. Thanks for all support!
