I am now entering my 3rd week, having been isolating and now on furlough ( let's see if we get paid)
Still have a hacking cough and feel absolutely knackered, so about normal. Well apart from the cough
TBH this is uncharted territory for me. Never been in this close proximity or for this long with SWMBO. Who will crack first, I have no plans for a new patio..........yet

No, you're fine.
If it was a treble post, that would be much more serious; that's a different matter entirely, you'd be right to be worried then, for sure.

Well I started off thinking I'd take this time to repaint my fork stanchions.
So after replacing seals and fluid as well as repainting.
I accidentally got carried away and put a new chain and sprocket set on, cleaned both wheels and gave them new bearings and properly run the wires for my heated grips.
Wondering how much more I can do before the other half get's sick of me spending time out there :D

Well over here in Spain the lockdown started earlier than the UK.
And I'm bored shitless.
Other than working on my families farm land all I've done is tinker with my bike.
The police have been fining people who go out without good reason.
You even have to download a form and fill it in detailing your journey just in case you get stopped by the police.
So far I've done the following to my bike.

A thorough clean. Which included the removal and clay barring of the bodywork

I'm in the process of cleaning the headers

Removed the touring screen and luggage racks.

Repaired the mirrors and removed the mirror extenders.

Cleaned the chain. Just need to lube and adjust it.

Fixed a minor wiring issue

Checked all the fluids.

Rebuilt the rear mc and refreshed the brake fluid.

I also did this on my mates firestorm.

I've also rebuilt my spare clutch and front brake mc's.

God I'm so bored 😂 😂 😂

Woah! That looks like a suicidal badger splat. Or perhaps some discarded chopped tomatoes from a sub-par Devonshire fry up?

Haven’t ridden since the start of lockdown when teaching went remote, so planning to go for a big blat this weekend to compensate. Need to get the frustration out somewhere since there aren’t any gigs to play any more!! DIY doesn’t scratch the same itch.
