Keep up with your vitamin D and C while you have it. Speedy recovery Gurp. Was reading where they were finding people with O blood type don't have it as severely or end up on a respirator as much as other blood types.

All the best mate, an old work friend of mine caught in hospital back in March when he was gaving chemo for lung cancer (which is ironic as he’d never smoked) and almost died. He went in on a Friday after collapsing at home in the shower, and the doctors treating him advised his wife that he was unlikely to make it through the weekend, but somehow he pulled through.

He’s still doing it hard though, his lungs were badly damaged (apart from the cancer) and he has to tow an oxygen bottle wherever he goes. We’ve just had our second day of 0 new cases and 0 deaths, so the lockdown restrictions are slowly being removed, I still can’t take a long ride in the country for another 2 weeks, but at least I can go buy some tyres for my F2 without having to dodge the cops. ;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?"

 I stopped to say hello to an old friend, who is a new neighbor of my daughters family in the country. I thought it would be best if they had a connection. I found myself in an indoor fish fry with 50 people and not a mask in sight. I said my hello's and got my ask out of there. Dang.
 The part that pisses me off is I really like fish and would have loved to stay.

Yeah Don, stupidity seems to be as prolific as the virus on your side of the pond, I don't know whether people have just given up, but the numbers of new cases and daily death toll is staggering. Keep safe, and wear a mask, it's folks our vintage who are most likely not to survive.

The new Dyna 2000 ignition for my Kawasaki 1428 arrived yesterday, I'm gonna install the GPZ1100 engine first while I work on some external oiling and better  crankcase ventilation after my new drag racing guru gave me some pointers a couple of weeks ago. Anyhoo, I did some drunken valve clearance adjustments ("Under Bucket Shims") and woke up in the middle of the night with the realisation that instead of installing thicker shims to reduce some pretty big clearances on the exhaust cam (the inlet cam side were all within spec) I installed THINNER shims!

Fark! Oh well, I'll re-do them tonight, and get my two musclebound sons to give me a hand to install the big lump back into the frame so I've got a little space on my crowded bench to assemble my K0 engine. Not really pissed off, just need to remember to keep the ginger beer capped until after doing anything requiring more than 2 brain cells......... ;D

All the best mate, and don’t believe the bullsh1t some folks are saying that once you have it you’re immune, the reinfection rate around the world is around 30%, so until an actual vaccine is available, it’s gonna be scary.

Just like the flu, your immunity is decaying at a good clip after you have had it, unless you are a hospital worker and your exposure is steady and you've developed antibodies that keep working...

Yep, an estimated 20% of Corona Virus cases are actually hospital workers, which is tragic. I've seen some US politicians compare the common flu, where some times as many as 30,000 Americans die every year, to the Corona Virus, where 230,000 Americans have died so far in 7 or 8 months with as many as 400,000 expected to be dead by years end. This dishonestly downplays the severity of this pandemic, which pisses me off.

 My son in law's parent's got it, they're hanging in so far. He (son in law) was helping his Dad get back to the rehab center where he caught it when his Dad coughed in his face. The mask worked, a week later he got a negative test.
  People my age that don't stay busy are freaking me out. They're stuck in chairs and can't take care of their homes any more. We used to build buildings not be confined to them.
  I was having a blast today climbing in and out of the empty engine bay of my car, welding motor mounts, getting my own tools, etc. I think we are on track staying in the shop working on and riding old motorcycles.

Yep, I agree, if anything I am doing more bike stuff now than I was 10 years ago, so maybe 60 is the new 50, for me at least? Or maybe I've got something in the back of my mind telling me to get my arse into gear and get these projects done, because time is running out? I'm not feeling sorry for myself, I'm just thinking that I need to get some bikes built so I can get some use out of them before I'm too old to tide them?

Then again, an 80 year old was killed on his sports bike a couple of weeks ago, overcooked it in a fast corner and plowed into a tree, and while most of the guys who saw it on FB agreed that there were far worse ways of going out, one female posed the stupid question, "What was an 80 year old doing a motorcycle anyway?" She was roundly shouted down, and so she should, how would she have him spend his twilight years, sitting in his rocking chair waiting to die? Fcuk that, I'd rather go out with a bang doing something I love, than just f.f.f.fade away.......... ;D

I'm 61 now and I have brought 7 bikes back from the dead and got 5 more back into riding condition since 2017. I don't understand how people can just sit there watching life go by and do nothing but stare at a screen. If I live another 20 years I hope I can still ride and if I can't I'm getting a CanAm three wheeler to terrorize the roads with. 8)

Sounds like a plan mate, personally, I want one of CycleX's CB750 trikes. I like the low chopper look, maybe I should order one now, just in case they've all gone by the time I'm old enough to need 3 wheels. I suppose it's life's great cycle (no pun intended) I started my passion riding a 3 tricycle when I was 2 or 3, and I'll be riding a trike again when I'm (hopefully) 82 or 83...... ;D

Don..... I think you’ve got this figured out! Keep working, riding and racing! I didn’t ride as much as usual this year, but spent plenty of time in the shop, and ran 8 X 8 hour endurance races in the MR2. I’m 10 years older (67) than the next youngest team member, but still managed to set FTD at 6/8 events. Unlike many of my buddies, I can still see my feet. Keep at it!

 I had a sore knee and spent a winter in my chair hoping for it to get better. My buddy landed a funny car repair job and since  I owned the tools, we teamed up. After a couple weeks in the shop I was moving a lot better and could see an improvement. I never did need to get that knee fixed.  My gym closed and I was going to join another one until the virus started up. I'm lifting at home now. Light weights, lots of reps.
 With the help of a friend I missed the measurement on my car's motor mounts and may need to cut and weld them again. That really pisses me off. I knew the correct thing to do but let myself get talked out of it.

You guys are enjoying life doing what you love.
Week off work def cost me most than a weeks lost wage and that pisses me off.
At least I'm not sick anymore and go back to work tomorrow.

Good job mate, glad you’re ok!

So I decided to have my old Ford Explorer towed away rather than spend twice as much as I paid for the car 5 years ago on a reconditioned tranny. I rang a mob to take it away and they told me they’d pay me $350 (AUD, around $250 USD) for it. Well that was a bonus considering that I expected nothing, and I had my oldest boy (who had been driving it for the last few years and killed it) to load a pile of spare wheels and other junk into it, so that was a bonus to get rid of that sh1t.

I still feel like Judas though, I couldn’t watch it being towed away as it’s been absolutely trouble free for the 100,000 miles that my son drove it (without wasting his money on servicing the transmission) but I put the 350 towards a new Delkevic exhaust for my K0 project, so while I’m sending one vehicle off to die, lonely in a foul smelling junkyard, I’m bringing a CB750 to life, so I shouldn’t feel guilty, but I still do, and that pisses me off..... ;D

 My brothers water heater was out. It's one of the newer explosion proof models. Has a fuse link on the thermocouple, we removed it and put a regular on it because that's all we had. Won't light. I finally installed the burner outside the heater, pilot has gas, piezo lighter has spark, the spark won't light the gas. I can light it with a torch. Ran it a minute and it finally restarted. I put it in, no dice. Repeated the above, moved the spark rod into the flame area. No light. lit it manually and it has a pilot. Finally got it working, put it together. Won't light. I lit it with a torch. now it's working fine. I told him don't spill gas in the basement.
No matter how many times you paint over a shadow, it's still there.
