    I've been self isolating for years. Only thing I'll miss is the driving, glad I got a quick spirited drive in on Monday night before the announcement!

    Never seen the beach as busy with dog walkers :cool:

    guess you all will be watching plenty TV and being on the internet and undertaking garage projects... do something constructive to pass the time till things improve.
    following a few cases on my small island things have slowed down a bit, schools closed, some restrictions on public gatherings, some businesses closed while others on reduced staff/hours/rotations....i will see how things progress in the coming days.

    everyone try to keep safe

    Just got the email, we shall be closing the gates at 4pm Friday until further notice :oops:
    UK government is paying 80% off the wages so it will be tight for a while:mad: Danielle still has folk to look after and there was a shitstorm about PPE in her work(community social worker)and a few folk walked out so theres some extra money to make up there.
    On the plus side it will finally give me time to fit the mounting pile off Dina parts I've here:Dnothing exciting dont worry:rolleyes:

    My friend is very weary of motorbikes, he's from NI. But over in England it is somewhat different. Still dangerous but different.

    As it turned out, that photo was taken at the side of the road cause I broke down lol. The gear input shaft came loose and I was unable to select gears lol. And thus was stuck until I could fix it.

    It was also leaking copious amounts of fuel gggrrr! Still can't get to the bottom of that one.

    But I didn't want to mention that in the post.

    Well, these are cheap chinese fairings and I couldn't exactly get the fairings lined up perfectly. A few bolts here and there are nothing.

    But annoying, the whole thing rattled to pieces and the linkage rod fell out the linkage arm. The rod you see from the footrest to the engine. Meaning I couldn't select gears. It kept falling out on the way home, eventually I bet the fecker!

    Well, luckily you can buy spares. Not cheap though :(
