I hope nobody shoots at the boxes en route as happened to my first one from Fabian. It arrived with a number of bullet scars on it. You can see the rim actually melted and distorted, where the bullet struck and there are shock cracks radiating out from the strike point. A number of teeth were also struck and Fabian feared that they could have stress cracks in them so replaced the whole sprocket.

Good to read you Wilson ! Yes I don't know what they did with your sprocket ! Maybe Clays shooting... Fortunately we found a solution !

Thanks Phil !

Waved goodbye to my M3W for the winter, as some of the staff from the storage I use near St Tropez, came to pick it up today. It behaved pretty well this year apart from a failed Lambda sensor or sensors but it was still drivable and a fairly easy repair using the Bosch universal Lambdas. I am having to go back to the UK early this for some medical attention, which is going to be complicated by 14 days quarantine and then that a Covid test is required before I go into hospital. The Covid test is looking very difficult unless the hospital can arrange it.
