I'm pretty-sure someone has been filling my joints up with broken glass, as although I was NEVER supple, I feel more brittle than ever.

Agree on Temic units, Never replaced an EPB module.. Yet

TBH grovelling under motors, riding bikes etc. Is about the only excercise I get, apart from "horizontal jogging". But, tis much cheaper than Gym membership, which I shall NEVER do.
A biker's wife (hospital Matron) when asked if he could have another bike, said "Do it, when you're sat dribbling in your chair, you'll wish you had" Wise words indeed.
You are only young once, but you can be immature forever
