Unusual I must say..

Perhaps Paul will let me have a look at it one day...

Onto other topics, I'm using the Activa as a daily driver for a few days now.

It really is no hardship :-D

They really are good fun aren't they :) once I have some driveway space the dash is being rebuilt on the activa and it's going back on the road to free up some more space. Why a dash has to be so convoluted I don't know!

I must admit Will, even after all these years an Activa still brings a smile to my face every time I drive it :-D

They have a magic about them. Especially with an MBC fitted :-D

This has reminded me of a silly 'Knock, Knock' joke I made up for my eldest godson on Christmas Day a few years ago, when he was making up 'Knock, Knock' jokes with no proper punch line (you know how young children are when they discover jokes!). It went well on the day, but badly on his first day back at school. The joke goes as follow;

Knock, Knock.
Who's there?
Kungf!
Kungf Who?
HiYah!, and a joke chop to the neck.

As I said, it went well on the day. I made sure not to connect, and Charley almost fell off his chair laughing. He remembered most of the joke (except one bit), and on his first day back at school told it to his best friend. Unfortunately he connected, and his Mum had some explaining to do when she collected him that evening!
