Also only drips oil when i'm moving  :guitar



Yeah but doesn't necessarily drip oil the whole time you're moving.... (In my experience - I had one once on an Apr*l*a. A right naus to set up and not always willing to work:pokefun :lol


Don't be too hard on yerself fella, we need lazy people  :lol :lol

Oh no, be absolutely assured - I am never "willing" to work, I only do it out of the necessity to buy food beer petrol more bikes etc etc. I could do foc all, all day long given the opportunity. Retirement won't come soon enough  :)

Full day in the garage today fitting a replacement engine. I'm very pleased with how it went, but I hope to God it runs ok, because I really don't want to be taking it back out again anytime soon.

Took the old girl out for a test ride after fitting thundercat forks, yokes and bars ready for a track day at brands hatch on 6th of March. just  basic setup but she feels so much better and is wishing me to tip her in to the corners only wish it is warmer and dryer. A bit of fine adjustment and she's ready for ragging around brands.
There ain't arf been some clever bastards

It wouldn't be fun if it was easy, I just wish it wasn't this much fun.

Loomies run for me in Hampshire this arvo, the place was packed, a little bit of sunshine on a Saturday and all the boys we out on their toys. I did not hang about as it looked like a 20-25 minute queue for a coffee so I visited my old mate (Wildplum) in Hindhead got a cup of tea instantly and it did not cost me a quid.
Luvley jubley. :lol

The other thing I did to my Fazer today, in fact 3 minutes ago, was to raise the gear shift lever by one spline on the shaft.
I have just purchased some new bike boots (Really pleased with them) but I have been finding it difficult hooking up for the next cog especially when ragging it, what was happening was my boot was just stopping the lever from dropping low enough to allow the lever to engage for the next cog swap position. :rolleyes
