Wait til "cabin fever" comes out...
At least we have personal therapy devices :)
I know. and yes. I'm about to head out for therapy session!
Dan Aykroyd nailed it:
Good gettin' your minimum daily required amount of therapy to ya!
Ditto to all of that.
My wife and I are both working remotely and I'm the only one leaving the house for groceries right now.
I have an appointment to get tires put on my AT tomorrow, and that's really the only thing I'm willing to do other than go to the grocery. We just downsized into a tiny apartment so having the ability to self-isolate on the bike is going to be key. I can get onto the Blue Ridge Parkway within a few minutes, so unless I hit a deer I should be OK.
I'm in the motorcycle business. It wouldn't hurt to get a few parts that you need to keep your bike going if the distributors temporally close. It would suck to have your bike down with forced time off.
That's the only reason I'm getting tired put on tomorrow.
I grabbed oil and a filter and some other basic essentials from the dealer on Tuesday.
Surely it would be non-essential business that close? How would a motorcycle shop be considered non-essential? I'm sure I could manage for a short while without food, but without a motorcycle - that's just crazy!
Yeah, I got that. No one "needs" a new bike.
We haven’t really had a winter in VA, so I’ve been riding off and on all winter long - but the first ride of spring still feels good - especially on a 82f day.
good deal! yeah, look out for the vermin!
Bit of a mixed bag. Deepish snow is places, and mud in others. Still a riot though.
Hope all you FF's had a great Saturday and are having a good weekend despite all stuff that's going on.
Dropped the AT off at the dealership for the tire install. They're not a Honda dealership, but they provided awesome customer service when I was a BMW GS owner so I wanna support 'em. They didn't have the tubes for my bike in stock so it'll be ready Tuesday or Wednesday. That works just fine for me.
Fingers crossed they are not ordered to close by then...
I did, thanks.
I really should get in the kill switch assembly and clean it out. Keep forgetting, but the closeup of it in your post reminded me!
Looks like Oz is on brink of shuting all non essentials down. 48 hrs to comply.
Will get a few things in the AM for bike and wait for the shit to clear.
Take it easy guys and gals.
Covid 19 sounds like a obscure bike.
Maybe not one you would like to ride.
Could only imagine the reviews,
"The new Connie 19 seems to have a hard time breathing when pushed. Forced induction maybe whats needed. At start up, always coughs abit."
Bad taste?, yep, but if you don't laugh, you'll only cry.
Official, 4 week shut down as i understand it. Schools, non essential services etc.
No interstate travel either.
Has anyone removed Outex from a rim? Or repaired it?
Prior owner installed it but also ran dynabeads which got under the outex and proceeded to render it non air-tight or self-healing, so there's a tube in there. I'm going to start removing the existing outex and re-seal it properly, and looking to learn from other people's mistakes in attemping to remove it.
Heat gun and a few cheap plastic scrapers will be your friend.Like removing a giant sticker.A stiff plastic brush and mineral spirits (and a lot of drinking spirits )for the left over glue.Be prepared to be bored.
I wonder if their customer service would have any helpful hints? A phone call might save untold hours
