I'm having fun posting in the blog smile

However, English is not my mother tongue, so, as we're all friends here, don't be shy and if you detect a major grammatical or other kind of mistake in any post, please let me know so I can correct! cheers

Very enjoyable and interesting. Regarding the mudguard bolts being installed incorrectly, it's bad enough that the factory cannot get this consistently right but neither their final inspection nor the dealer has found the fault before delivery.

This was quite annoying. But, as you say, because MMC should pay attention to these details. It's not so difficult! But on the other hand I spent a really nice time working with my father. The 3-Wheeler is the best excuse ever to spend nice time together!

I've just put our "Pilot files" smile

We're really anxious for this situation to end, and be able to start doing short trips around Madrid in springtime!
