Well we are not completely locked down over here but it probably wont be long..All Pubs, Clubs, Bars, Movie Theatres Restaurants etc are closed. No Motorsport... no football of any sort but we still have bikes to play with.
I am hunkered down at present with a sore throat and Temp of 38 so I am not allowed into the hospital to visit my Son (had his 2nd Stem cell transplant 5 weeks ago and is doing it tough right now) and that is pretty hard...
I ended up making a decision on the 2.5 CB250 G5 bikes... I sold them off to a guy who has the time to bring at least one of them back to life... and just as I was about to start on the CB400 I happened across what we lovingly call here... a Postie Bike. Or a Honda CT110 Stepthrough. They catch big $$ here and have a bit of a Cult following.. but they are fun and ideal for just a quick trip down the road for some milk or a coffee (when they re-open).
I have just been sorting out electrics (6 volt system) and then it is front forks and a good cleanup.. runs like a charm, at least it does now after cleaning out the mouse nest in the Air Cleaner..

James.

You must have 15 bikes that you could tell us about.

A different one each day.

Lots of photos please.

I’m going to dig in my archives and post about my early bikes.

Not very nice. It was intended to put a smile on your faces. Some people have zero humour in them. Won't bother again

People take the lock down seriously. I was in A&E last night from 6pm to 1am last night.
When you go through the new procedures just to walk in and see someone it will dawn on you just how serious things are and going to get.
At 3am monday I had a crazy high temprature and a heart rate so fast you had no chance of counting how many beats per minute it took three hours to calm down. Stupidly at 6am I shrugged it off after a shower as I felt better so I went to work. Bearing in mind I'm working in a University full of international students.There are over 200 still there even though the Uni is closed as they have nowhere to go. Now I'm sitting here wrighting it has just dawned on me how stupid I was going in. I finally got an appointment at 10pm Monday I was told to stay in the car and someone would phone me when I'm there. I sat there until 10:50 and the phone rang and I was told to wait due to the high demand. The phone rang again about 12:00 and then I was finally allowed to see some one that was wearing a totally  inadequate mask. The ones I wear for spraying at work are far superior saying that I can't get them due to idiotic panic buying. By about 12:30 my heart rate had returned to normal and no signs of a virus so they didn't want to keep me and sent me home about 1am. I'm not one for going to the doctors I havn't been in 16 years or more.I don't even take paracetimol for a headache. I have been up for almost 34 hours now without any sleep I'm still wide awake now and have no interest in sleeping as it hurt like #@%$ and don't fancy it again.

I also found it funny Roy but that may be because im deprived of sleep and oxygen  ;D

I used to be called obtuse by teachers too.   I compounded the obtuseness by asking them 'Isn't that an angle Sir?'

Do you mean you are not getting the right angle?  It’s probably just a reflex reaction to a degree.
