Ok, how the hell do you stay motivated to work on bikes? Before the ktm rally i put in about 20 hours going over the 950 and probably more on the 690 that a mate rode. Since then, i'm finding myself walking past my bikes daily, looking with disgust.... at the work i have to do, and at my general feeling of CBF'd.... Yep, Melbourne winters don't help. Being dark outside before i get home doesn't help. Many days work and the busyness of life sure doesn't help. Lack of motivation ensues, partially due to no major plans to ride over coming / immediate weeks... On my list is : - tank off and air filter changes, rear indicator replacement on SE - put engine back in 505 (eventually) - Replace r h engine cover on 690 due to stripped thread in oil filter cover. Grease head stem bearings, general tidy up - Finish cleaning engine etc and complete wiring repairs on 660. Check bearings, grease etc - grease swing arm and headstem bearings on 450 Nothing is difficult. On their own, each job is an hour and a bit maybe, or less. Ive got all the tools, and the time. I offered a mate cash today to come work on my bikes, ( he used to own a bike shop and is semi retired) and got told to fuggoff and stop being a lazy carnt.... got to be honest, the couch is a more attractive proposition recently. I can see what's going to happen, I'm going to be invited on a ride and bike won't be ready, and I'll rush through and stuff something at midnight the night before. How do you stay motivated ?
