Have fun!

Cheers,

You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Johnny

Would have ridden over for a coffee and chat had I not stepped off a trials bike and the ground was 2 feet lower than expected.
Snapped a calf muscle, so on crutches while they decide whether to operate or not.

So riding anything is out at the mo.
Enjoy this spell of good weather and stay safe.

Thanks Dave, but I fear it will be a long job considering what they've told me so far.
Still I may have time to spare to start polishing my bikes now.

John , the way this mad world is going, many may have time on their hands in the not to distant future!!
I remember about10 years ago throwing a strap over a trailer and stretching my calf and having the strangest (and painful) feeling where I "felt" a bang and done some tendon damage. Was off work for 2 weeks, but nothing as bad as what you've gone through

Hells teeth - Gordon's alive.........................well, Greg's alive
Thought you must have shot yourself or something!
It has been cleaned just not polished.
I don't do polishing - just ride em.
Much like dusting the house - there are much better & more interesting things to do.
I did lubricate the throttle cables after you complained and I do do all the correct servicing at the right times too.
