    Got home from Thailand, got @Grasshopper 's bike out of the garage and on his way to go home for tomorrow.

    Mine on the other hand, flat battery, got it going with a roll start and ran for 10 mins to keep the battery alive. Back to work tomorrow *moan grumble*

    Ah yes, was forced to wear one for the whole trip home even after explaining that they are useless for preventing you catching communicable illnesses... they are supposed to be used for catching coughs and sneezes etc to prevent infecting other people. They do nothing to prevent you catching an illness.

    Exactly the point @GreyImport
    I have to wear one every day while visiting my son in ICU so I don’t infect him but they do also protect the wearer depending on the mask.
    Best protection right now is hand sanitizer and don’t touch your face.
    They have set up a “Fever Clinic” at Westmead now so anyone who presents to Emergency with flu like symptoms is handed a mask and sent to the Fever Clinic. It opened on Friday and this morning there would have been 10 people waiting to go in.
    I am expecting it to get much busier as the days / weeks go on.
    The classic is I see people walking around the hospital with masks on but only covering their mouth. Obviously don’t read the instructions lol

    Those masks are only to prevent ill people or doctors from getting coughs or sneezes into other people. They offer no protection if you're not ill... ie you need a proper sealing face mask and goggles if you want avoid catching anything... hand sanitizer is good, too.

    No one is forcing anyone to wear them, it was Mrs. Linkin who insisted :p

    The Saga continues... The ZXR was going fine, just one carby had a lower fuel height because of concerns that the float needle mightn't seal off. Swapped carbies with new seats and needles, too rich in the middle, swap carbies back.... In that process I broke the only key for the bike, the tank liner started to fall away and the fuel tap started playing up. I got a key cut, then lost it 2 days later, found it 4 days later, went to ride it home and fuel supply is failing so it isn't working. Sigh. Hopefully it is an easy fix.

    ...but now she sleeps until April...as you probably know, in my country due to Covid19 now we had severe restrictions, and we could only exit from our houses to go to work, buying food, etc...

    Wow, that is a super score.
    Expensive to restore though.

    Now with the F1 AGP cancelled I will have time to do some stuff on the weekend.
    While it is tempting to do the front forks on the Postie I really need to get back into the SRX as well as give the Garage a really good clean up and sort out.
    Probably going to sell off my Parts cleaner as well so that needs to cleaned and photographed etc.
    Not to mention finishing the yard etc.
    Always stuff to do and not enough time to do it.

    Put the new battery on and it fired up after a few attempts, my new 5 Euro battery tester from Lidl indicated that it was charging alright as it should do, so I think you were right, duff battery messed things up a bit. I'll take it for a run tomorrow

    Sold another bike (and a half) today: KDX 200D - air-cooled.

    Now what next? The ZXR has a flat tyre I just saw. Had to change it anyway... Sigh.

    Managed to get out on the road for the first time this year, a gentle warm up followed by several red line runs for the heck of it.
    Looks increasingly like lockdown will happen sometime this week.

    Our clueless government is still allowing us free-range constituents to mass together in groups of up to 500 people! Luckily, most people realise this isn't a great idea and are self isolating. I too, may go for a little ride today. The roads are still busy, but nothing like normal.

    I've been working on the Nostalgia Drag Bike since getting home on Monday. Ordered new tyres and a few other bits. Just waiting around now, so a ride is probably a good idea.
