Announcements / Covid 19
« on: November 11, 2020, 06:38:20 PM »
Got back home today after been dragged off to hospital in the Ambulance unable to breath with Covid19 two weeks ago. No time for goodbyes or anything. Two weeks on oxy volunteered for the medical trials. Thankfully never ended up on ICU. It was bad enough as it was. A very scary 2 weeks. Now looking at a min 3/4 months for my lungs to recover. Requirement for escaping hospitial only 40 steps along a corridor not stairs. Sounds ridiculously easy but i have walked out under my own steam unlike many and no doubt many more to come.
Please do all you can to protect yourself and others from this its a slight inconvenience to wear a mask. Believe me this virus is NO joke.
I Wouldn't want any of you to go what i have just been through. Stay safe.

Misc / Open / Batteries and Acid

The new battery for the NC31 arrived today from a UK supplier, unfilled and with the acid pack. Anyone else received one like that lately in the UK.,

Other Bikes / CB400 NC31

Whilst on hol in Cornwall the 400s  reg/rec failed cooking the battery and blowing several bulbs luckily with only one day to go before we returned home. Not wanting to pay the thick end of £200 for another i opted for a no doubt Chinese lookee likee.  This gets quite hot. Now I would expect it to get warm but no idea as to how warm, never having had reason to touch the original one when in operation.  So for a couple of quid i have put a fan on it and it now works much cooler which i would think can only be a good thing.

CB750 / Air filter box gasket
« on: June 19, 2020, 09:29:13 PM »

  The gasket on the 705F1 air filter box seperator has got big and baggy and it would seem you can't buy just the gasket. It is a square C section in shape. Open to suggestions as i am struggling to find anything suitable.
Or if anyone has a good 750f1 airbox / gasket they don't want as mine seems to have got a little out of shape.

A Florida Woman Stops Alligator Attack Using a Small .22 cal Beretta Pistol:

This is a story of self-control and marksmanship by a brave, cool-headed woman with a small pistol against a fierce predator.

What's the smallest calibre that you would trust to protect yourself?

Here's her story in her own words:

"While walking along the edge of a pond just outside my house in the Villages discussing a property settlement with my soon-to-be ex-husband, and other divorce issues, we were surprised by a huge 12-ft alligator which suddenly emerged from the murky water.

It began charging us with its large jaws wide open. She must have been protecting her nest because she was extremely aggressive.

If I had not had my little Beretta .22 calibre pistol with me, I would not be here today!

Just one shot to my estranged husband's knee cap was all it took. The gator got him easily, and I was able to escape by just walking away at a brisk pace.

The amount I saved in lawyer's fees was really incredible and his life insurance was also a big bonus!``

Humour / Have a Drink
« on: April 02, 2020, 08:26:36 PM »
A cowboy, who just moved to Wyoming from Texas, walks into a bar and orders three mugs of Bud.
He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn.
When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more.
The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy,
"You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it.
It would taste better if you bought one at a time."
The cowboy replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers.
One is in Arizona , the other is in Colorado.
When we all left our home in Texas, we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together.
So I'm drinking one beer for each of my brothers and one for myself."
The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there.
The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way.
He orders three mugs and drinks them in turn.
One day, he comes in and only orders two mugs.
All the regulars take notice and fall silent.
When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss."
The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his eyes and he laughs.
"Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains.
"It's just that my wife and I joined the Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking."
"Hasn't affected my brothers though."

Humour / Somethings a bit fishy about this
« on: March 11, 2020, 02:54:54 PM »
Two prawns were swimming around in the sea.
One called Justin and the other called Kristian.
The prawns were constantly being harassed and threatened by sharks that inhabited the area:

Finally one day Justin said to Kristian. "I'm fed up with being a prawn. I wish I was a shark and then I wouldn't have any worries about being eaten."
A large mysterious cod appeared and said. "Your wish is granted"
Low and behold, Justin turned into a shark.
Horrified, Kristian immediately swam away, afraid of being eaten by his old mate.
Time passed (as it does) and Justin found life as a shark boring and lonely All his old mates simply swam away whenever he came close to them. Justin didn't realise that his new menacing appearance was the cause of his sad plight.
While swimming alone one day he saw the mysterious cod again and he thought perhaps the mysterious fish could change him back into a prawn..
He approached the cod and begged to be changed back, and, lo and behold, he found himself turned back into a prawn.
With tears of joy in his tiny little eyes Justin swam to Kristian's home. As he opened the coral gate, memories came flooding back.
He banged on the door and shouted. "It's me, Justin, your old friend, come out and see me again."
Kristian replied. "No way man, you'll eat me. You're now a shark, the enemy and I'll not be tricked into being your dinner."
Justin cried back. "No, I'm not. That was the old me. I've changed.......
I've found Cod...I'm a Prawn again Kristian."
