been a tad preoccupied.

Ive spent the last 2 weeks living at the end of a runway in a tent with no phone signal and the nearest pub was a 5-mile walk.

Fireblade hasnt been sold.

Kia has developed an irritating misfire and insurance has run out.

FTO is in for its re-test, picking it up tomorrow, will then need to tax it, but no towbar so wont be able to trailer the FUCR.

im out of ideas, cash and enthusiasm, lots of work still to do before i can even contemplate taking it for an MOT, i have most of the bits i need its just a case of fitting it all together in a way that is A: legal and B: works, turns out the battery is not going to fit under the tail unit, so my idea of having an "open" frame has gone to shit as the only place i can really put it is behind the engine.

new tyres are still under my bed waiting to be fitted, clocks are on but the yokes wont fit, so im going to ditch the risers off the originals and machine some clamps to hold the stanchions, then drill the original and use some XS handlebar clamps to hold the ace bars on.

not keeping the top yoke . I want to put higher bars for a laid back ride . I will either take the whole front end into my local breakers who said he might be able to match up something else . or I might have to get a top yoke fabricated depending on cost I suppose . if I have any luck either way I will let you know .

Wow, sure has been a long time since i even looked at the FUCR!.

however today i moved it from the same spot in the car park where its been sat for the past 6 months, its in the workshop now and with the DT nearing completion i hope to start work on this (getting it running again will no doubt be the first priority) next week, im spending a lot more weekends on base so ideally want to get it all up together before i move base in a couple of months, probably not MOT'able but atleast moveable in one piece
