How often do you check your tyre pressure...was shocked when I checked what they were sitting on (**)

After I spray painted the rims(DIY with Rust-Oleum) and polished(Black shoe polish) the tyres, I took it to the garage to pump and found that two were on 0.30, and one on zero bar :oops: I pumped them all to 1 bar ##

Also did some maintenance...Alpha being as awesome as he is, assisted me with pitching the prop as one blade was out, changing plugs, fixing a leak on the tank(sender unit not lined up proper), as well as helping put back the front tyre as it was now lekka fat after I pumped it up and the maaader of a bolt that did not want to go in so smoothly that it needed some hammering motivation :lol: ##

That and fixing my comms :mrgreen:

ALPHA, you ROCK mate ^*^^
