  Terry if you feel that way , maybe you should think about this. ...
 IMAGINE how your SOHC feels   :'( when you are always out with those other SLEEKER , YOUNGER, FASTER #$%*es.. :o

Yes Frank, my old sohc probably hates that I have another 16 or 17 sweet young bikes to ride, but if she looks around the garage she'll see the remains of 3 or 4 other old SOHC4's who may, or may not have complained about my dalliances with my younger bikes, so if she knows what's good for her, she'll shut the fcuk up and wait her turn........ ;D

I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

A garage with a level floor is a thing of beauty Spotty, and something to look forward to. Don't leave it empty too long, or I'll fill it with motorcycles......... ;D

I got a message from Fedex last Thursday saying that the welded and indexed crank, ported head and big cams for my Z1 engine had finally left Covid-ridden Florida and the estimated delivery was this Thursday. I just did a cargo trace, and my boxes are in Hawaii. Is it wrong to be jealous of my own bike parts? I mean, Hawaii? I'm fcuking cold! ;D

don't know at this stage when i'll be going home to rezza but you are more than welcome to use what will be quite a large chunk of empty garage, i'll have my two bikes, the bike lift and shelving so there'll be room for at least 4 bikescos there'll be no car or gardening crap

you can get all the stuff out of the storage container, save a sh1tload of money and they'll only be 10 minutes down the road

an extra bonusy thing i just thought of is you can keep them all on battery tenders, there's about 15 power points in the garage including a high amp one for welding....

anyway something to think about, rent would be very reasonable, a slab of cheap aldi beer every now and then

don't suppose you know anyone likely to be looking for a room in a share house in sunny rezza in the not too distant future - must like very large dogs, cats ( just normal size ), motorcycles and beer

That sounds magnificent mate, I'll be happy to pay that kind of rent, for sure. I don't know anyone off the top of my head looking for a place to live, but I see ads all the time on FB for people looking for accommodation and Reservoir is pretty popular as it's closer to the city with public transport nearby etc. ;D

Scunny, would you have even known they were out of spec without measuring, as in running issues?

Scottly, the bike has been getting harder to start when cold, when it fired up, it would be only on 2, then the other 2 would burp and fart into life. Both dud caps were on the same coil.

Scunny, I asked because I had one that read open with the meter, but no running issues. I replaced all four caps, as they were even older than yours, and weren't that expensive.

Bad brains piss me off.

My best friend is in a coma following a stroke.

I'm 2200 miles away.

Dear God, thats a long ride I don't wanna go on right now.  It may be selfish to ask.  Please just make that man open his eyes and walk again.

Wow, that sucks.  When it comes down to it, humans are pretty fragile.  Would your presence there give some comfort to his family?  If the answer is "Yes", then you know what you have to do...

I hope he recovers.

Update - this guy woke up then removed his own breathing tube!  Then complained it made his throat hurt.  Looks like he's gonna be just fine! 
Of course the nurses admonished him.  Then quickly put him back to sleep and inserted a new tube so he can recover without being such a pain in their arse!
The community rallied and raised a respectable sum of money to offset the medical bills too.  I sent a care package to the man and pledged my pops as a servant should they need any assistance.

So that's the really good news.

THE PISSED OFF PART

surprise bills piss me off.  The set of winter wheels I recently acquired decided to smoke a throttle servo.  So off to the shop for a rather expensive yet not intensive repair. 
Then the landlord informs me that I need to activate gas service.  Where I had assumed every appliance was electric, turns out there is one lonely and seldom seen appliance that still feasts on the decaying carcasses of dinosaurs.

All these responsibilities make me wish I was still out riding my bike.
