  1. I had one for best part of 30 years. Throw up some pics and we'll go from there.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. And it came in very small print so he couldn't read it anyway
  7. 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.
  8. Compliments of the season Chaps & Ladies. Can't wait for the days to lengthen ................ drying up a bit would be good too
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. No need to apologize. No snowflakes here and I hate that PC crap. I'm also following a US sailing forum and they literally knock 6 bells out of everything and out of each other. If nothing else it enhances the vocabulary
  12. At his age I don't know what he can or can't ........ scrap that, I don't wanna know
  13. Kees doesn't sound very Stralian
