It's true what they say:

Us Brits aren't really happy until we've got something to moan about .....  :015:

Yeah, I was coping alright 'til Winjer said it'll go on 'til May 2021.

 We had an orribull wet winter, looking forward to some great biking, I had so many rallies planned and 2 trips, Italy & Picos booked & paid for, now we're lucky to be here, todays figures for the UK are really worrying.

The DIY to pass the time aint helping, stuck a chisel in me finger, burnt me hand with the paint stripper & fell off the steps. A&E are gonna be really overstretched if this carries on much longer.

So, removed the oil lines and polished them up



Then removed the rear calliper and gave it a good clean.  16 plate with 9500m and the calliper was cleaner than I expected, and easier to remove than I was thinking.
Other bikes: 2010 Street Triple R,  ZXR 400 race bike for track days and Husqvarna FE350 for green lanes, a Husqvarna 701 Enduro for TET and a Yamaha TDR250 for investment fun

Well we retired 15 months ago so strange times are currently nothing unusual to us,going to bed every night knowing that I can get up in the morning and do WTF we like the next day and bugger me money turns up in the bank every month and I donít do a dam thing for it  :112:,thereís not an hour in the day I havenít worked and I find the whole concept of good money turning up without working for it completely alien.

So while not being able to ride a bike is a bummer just have to change tack and take to other things donít ask me to like it,itís just the way it is,a time for stout hearts and strong minds and no little luck,as for cancelled trips blimey first one down the tube was Le-Mans 24 hour next month,then the NW200 in May,friends coming from NI too Donington to watch relatives at the BSB,and 4 other Moto GP dates down the pan as well,but..... with 6 bikes,3 cars,a van,a decent size house to paint,2 dogs that expect to walk at least 20 miles a week iíll Worry about riding a bike when the law satys I can and until then iíll Crack on and currently saving money,not to say I donít spare a thought for the poor soles not so fortunate in these difficult times.

I was just joshing with the DIY accidents, sat here imagining it all starting with the light stuff ending in A&E then ambitions sending folk up ladders repairing the roof or gutters, under the car on dodgy axle stands. Perish the thought of it all.

We could still be riding only for the social crowds gathering at chip shops last Sunday after Boris asked people to isolate. Now what we got, Runners, hikers, cyclists, horse riders, all out enjoying the countryside, but not us. All down to them eejits last Sunday.  :192:
