Why is it when you're just about to spend some money on something nice and fun does a sudden boring (but necessary) expense rear its head?
I've spent the last week umming and ahhhing about whether or not to buy a 6.5 Yukon Photon XT so have been emailing Paul from Scott Country who has been a real gem and answered all my questions re mounts and ir, been superb at replying quickly and generally gone above and beyond what I'd expect of most retailers. I finally decided today that yes I'm going to get one but on the way to work I hear a knocking sound coming from the rear of my 4x4. When I arrive I get out and have a check only to find out one of the rear shock absorbers has pretty much fallen apart and is barely attached in the middle!
Due to the nature of the upgraded shocks and they're all getting on a bit I now have to replace all four at a cost of £190 so there goes the Photon for another couple of months!
