  1. Evening Gents, Likewise back on the site after some time away. So many things to do, so little time. HNY. The plague is still raging so nothing new there. Hope you all keeping well. Still commuting on the magnificent 3XW, weather has been very mild up till X-mas so got a lot or riding days in. I've only got 23K on the clock now so alls good. Had some shit weather last 2 weeks but tomorrow looks good so look forward to jumping on the bike again. OldFJ your 3CV looks very good and nice pics (the 3CV in the same colour was my first FJ Loved that bike) Stay safe.
  2. For the last 2 or 3 months have been commuting the 28 miles to work and back on the FJ here in Kernow. Mornings are not too bad but late afternoon rush hour between Falmouth & Truro and through Truro is a killer. Cagers all over the place and Truro is at a standstill on double lanes. High beam and blinkers on and gently force your way through the middle. Generally people are alert, helpful and make space. Some however should be shot on sight.
  3. Merry Crimbo - Have a good one lads & girls. Let's hope we can knock this shit on the head in 2021. Cheers!!
  4. I had one for best part of 30 years. Throw up some pics and we'll go from there.
  5. Mid eighties when I was about to shell out for my then new XJ-650 my neighbour had one, all singing, all dancing with the high viz orange Marlboro branded fairing. It was looking the muts' dangelies and I was infatuated with the thing. Fortunately common sense prevailed and probably the reason I'm still alive today Well done!
  6. Working from home so that keeps me plenty busy. I am operations/procurement superintendent for a marine towage & salvage company. Since shipping is classed as an essential industry I can have some movement to tend to our boats and I have to be in the office once a week to sort through courier deliveries in and send them on their way to where the boats are or will be. So once a week I can at least look forward to a trip to Brixham and back same day, 165 mile round trip. So I look at the forecast and pick the best day for on the bike. The situation is pretty weird to say the least and I'm afraid it will only get worse before it gets better. Stay safe & healthy peeps.
  7. Hehe, first 85 mile commute of the year this morning. A tad chilly but good to be out on 2 wheels .... going like the clappers
  8. Wanted to drive the bike into work last week. Turned over for 5 secs but didn't want to start first go (its been 3 weeks or so since last start). Then all power went. I have had batteries start to struggle a bit to give you a bit of notice but not this one. The 5 secs cranking just completely killed it off. It is completely dead and the charger doesn't even register ....... "it is an ex-battery" New one one the way now but was pretty miffed I missed my ride.
  9. And it came in very small print so he couldn't read it anyway
  10. Same here. Never done and weather permitting I have a short blast around the block to keep things free & running. That being said, just fired up the FJ this afternoon, put some fresh Royal Dutch V-power in and went for a 40 mile blitz.
  11. Compliments of the season Chaps & Ladies. Can't wait for the days to lengthen ................ drying up a bit would be good too
  12. Or hopefully a bit sooner weather permitting. Sorry not much to report, weather has been absolutely shite in the West Country, and every time I see somebody on 2 wheels I think 'poor b*stard' from the heated seats of the Crossfire.
  13. She's back. Picked her up today and all is sweet. Finally got an as good as new FJ-1200 in the garage with 16.5K on the clock. Carbs done, valve clearances done, tune-up done. Parted with a few shekels to get her right but I'm sure the love will come back again soon.
