Well, one weekend away at the rally and the bike had 5lb extra to haul home :lol


I've had a couple of weekends away, working in various parts of the country - hate to think how much I bought home on Saturday  :rollin :rollin :rollin

Well, dry January is over, and coupled with a bit of a diet lost 12.2lbs. Quite happy with that as losing a few pounds when you’re getting old isn’t easy. However it’s the Dragon Rally next weekend , so will no doubt put it all back :lol , hopefully not though.


I've put my loss back on  :eek

100 percent of people I asked agreed with me :evil

83% of statistics are made up on the spot ;)


And I've told you a million times not to exaggerate  :lol :lol

Don't forget, we inherited these regulations on led lights, which were approved for use in the EU, prior to brexit - it's actually the EU's fault really  :lol .

Glad your op went well and has been successful. Do you have to take it easy using your left arm for a while, or is it full gas straight away?


Been full on this week - been a month since I had the operation. I did have a bit of physio in the garage over the festive break  :lol :lol :lol

First day back at work yesterday, my left arm hasn't felt as good as this in years. Still taking it easy though as I am not intending to miss anything this summer  :woot

On the bright side - I lost over a stone in weight  :rollin :rollin :rollin
Wow that is a serious weight loss :eek .  I’m sure you could achieve the same result a lot more pleasantly, albeit over a greater time period. :)


 :rollin :rollin :rollin I'm considering writing a book "How to lose weight quickly and feel like shite"
(without illustration's I hasten to add  :lol :lol )

Wishing you all a Happy non-Religion Specific Winter Solstice Festival   :D
Let’s do it properly whilst we still can :eek ………Merry Christmas everyone. :lol


Not to be a fun sponge or anything - but after arriving at the eldest daughters on Christmas morning for a day or so's merriment, we discovered that her and hubby had "eaten" something from the local Chinese the night before and were in no fit state to perform the host duties. Rest of the gang weighed in and a quite day was had by all (even with 6 dogs in the house). However, things then began to unfold. Early hours of 27th, my missus went down with something nasty. It wasn't looking good as this kicked off her IBS. A day later I also succumbed to what we now think was Norovirus.
Merry F***ing Christmas - My Arse!  :moon


 Oh my god what a nightmare :eek . What rotten luck. Hopefully you are all well on the mend now. Certainly a Christmas that you won’t forget, for all the wrong reasons. :(

Very glad to hear things went well and hope you have a lovely festive break


Thanks - I intend too. Just done a bit of retail therapy - Blue Spot removal tool, "O" Rings, rubber grease, vinyl stickers for the tailpiece. All for the Thou. Starting to feel better already.  :lol :lol :lol

Good to hear! does the MT 07 clutch arm work with the early FZS 600?  The clutch is not that heavy but coming from my sons 125 its night and day lol


That I don't know I'm afraid - this is for a FZS1000. From first looks, it will go on and give a fair bit extra leverage. I did worry that the extra length would mean the arm may clash on something like the cam chain tensioner casing, but having offered it up without the anaesthetic still in the system, I reckon it will be good to go.
A total of 18 stitches - as they dug into my left elbow and retrieved a trapped nerve as well (I think this had been like this since I hit a deer in 2014). Healing well - just trying not to do too much lol.

Tommy Bridewell, 2023 BSB champion.


Ahhh - see, I'm a luddite. Haven't followed any sort of motorcycle racing since VR retired.  :lol :lol :lol

Hopefully Tommy will be used to the Irwin level of banter, as he’ll have Andrew in his ear this time on the Honda. So hope Glen wins it next season.


Who?

When the bullshit starts to fly at race meetings, my two favourite mythical corners that have been made up over the years are the Yukskay Sweep and the Klakenbocker Esses. It’s so very hard trying to keep a straight face when someone claims to have been flat out through the Sweep or the Esses one time on a track day :rollin :rollin :rollin


LOL - almost sounds like being in the NAAFI, listening to the various young lads boasting about the conquests in the local town on a Saturday night  :lol :lol :lol .

Best of luck with it and hope you have a full recovery, in some ways as you say useful it falls into the winter break, hope it does not put too much a dampener on festivities


I don't think it will affect the festivities - nobodies getting any presents now as I won't be able to go shopping lol. Anyhow, the good news is that the new clutch operating arm (MT-07) turned up today from Fowlers - I'll be fitting that irrespective and obviously finger food can be shoved in with my right hand.  :lol :lol :lol :lol :lol

Hope your op goes well for you, and hopefully resolves the problem. Just have to drink right handed over the holiday. I shouldn’t think that will be too much trouble for a man of your calibre.
The only snag with having so much time off at Christmas and being rather vulnerable is……….them :eek (child alert, child alert). The very best of luck with that :lol


I've gotten the whole grandchild thing covered - I'm going to be in a lot of pain and mega grumpy  ;) ;) ;)

So, an update. Going in on Friday for the op on the left arm.  :eek 
Trapped nerve in the elbow and carpal tunnel to be resolved (well in one hand anyway!).
Haven't looked for any extended clutch arms yet, might just see how this pans out. It's just at the right time for me - two weeks off over Xmas, might as well make it four and come back fighting fit (?) in the New Year. :D

I once coined the expression "Talking biker bollocks" for those conversations between riders which tend to be a long list of anecdotes about good rides they've had and idiots they've encountered on the roads!  :lol
And some talk a load more of it than others :lol . When the bullshit starts flying, it’s time to go, or failing that, invent a few place names or events, and they’ll agree they’ve been there or attended the event. Priceless :) .


Hahaha yes, like it....  :rollin :rollin :rollin

At least two of my tyre fitting experiences were down to lack of knowledge on the part of the fitter - and both times it was on the same machine (Suzuki GS650GT), which due to notoriously porous cast wheels, I had tubes in. Both times (one in a car tyre place and the other in a motorcycle repair garage), the fitters removed the tubes, threw them away and fitted the tubeless tyres to the rims. Then they wondered why I came back the next day asking for my tubes to be refitted. At each event, neither fitter asked why the tubes were there and did I want them refitted.
  :eek
