Makes a change from keeping a Mars bar in the tool kit in case of emergencies  :001:

Washable K+N filter would have sorted those buggers
Thetrecker. Sometimes your the bug and sometimes your the windshield.

Bloody Rats & Mice !!!   :232:   Have had the same problem during the winter months for years.  Only Answer  !!!


LOADS & LOADS of POISON.


Better a Dead RAT carcass under your seat, than Wiring & Air Filters it appears, being chewed etc etc.

Keep it on the Black Stuff or Dirt - BUT - Rubber Side Down.  Else it hurts!

Never had the problem , but agree with all the above ,+ mouse traps set all over the garage. Just got to be careful if I drop a nut or bolt and it rolls under a cupboard  :005:

What a nightmare!

That’s a great pic, would love to get permission off of the owner to use it for a blog. Do you have their details?

Oh by the way, you now have a resident Pest Controller so let me know if you have any issues.
Luckily I don't have that problem in my garage no rodent would last long enough.

His name is Mark, and his details are   http://www.mcmotorcycles.com/   I am sure he won't mind, as I said that I had put a pic up on this forum. There were 4-5 more pics on his Facebook profile  as well. Just tell him that you have been talking to Rob who has just bought a Crosstourer.

I keep well baited and trapped &  Squirrels get to feel some hot lead before they get within 10 feet of my house & garage . It sound like "you the man" if we need any rodent advice in the future.
