My Triumph T100  lost all drive one day. The clutch had fallen off the shaft because the last muppet to bolt it on had left out the woodruff key. I took the cover off and fixed the clutch back on as best as I could. I left the chaincase oil in the gutter and rode home as gently as possible!

Kids putting Rainbow paintings in windows are all very well, but not having the colours of the spectrum  in the right order bugs my ocd as much as rogue apostrophes.

I don’t suppose proud parents would appreciate a note through the letterbox explaining that its violet indigo blue green yellow orange red. I had VIBGYOR beaten into me at school, the wife (who is a teacher) knows it the other way round, some mnemonic about Richard of York.

Some of us had to learn it in order to read the value markings on resistors.

Steve, don’t forget black and brown - they might get upset being left out!

I was trying not to confuse the non-enlightened (too much)
