Phew! Just now on the way back home from the wreckers with my interim clutch cable, decided to take the scenic route via the yarra blvd... all going great, from the guy in the truck pulling left and waving me through at the start, to the many headnods from fellow riders coming the opposite way, until.... ... the clutch cable finally snapped. Luckily the old man had told me to yank the cable hard to change gears in this scenario as he had been caught out like this in the old days. Managed to make it back to Hawthorn only stalling once. I know I probably shouldn't have been riding to the wreckers in the first place but what a hoot!
