As you all know already, nothing is new and this blog is no exception. It's full of pictures of cars and bikes, mostly stolen from somewhere or other and the odd bit of useful & not so useful information for your enjoyment.
Well, today was interesting, i had to ride this 25 miles home to get it, cleaned up so i can sell it on ebay. I have never ridden a bike with sidecar so it was a steep learning curve, with a few scary moments, but i made it home.
I have to say i don't think i will be riding one out of choice again.
Two wheels are definately better than three for me.
she's so easy to start now, but i had to adjust the float bowl height when i got back as she was leaking petrol out of the overflow, but apart from that a great ride and i got some garage time as well, made up so temp spacers for the wheels and attempted to get a front caliper bracket i had to work- it won t
so its been a beautiful day today, and i managed to get some riding in and some repairs, the sporty has been out for a good long blast and i ve changed the main jet, and i got round to swopping the carb on my shovel from this
the SU has been causing me grief for a while, so reluctantly i have decided to change it for the cv which i had, but the good news is, its ridable again, which i a really happy about. so i also got a few miles on that today as well.
i was also thinking of a seat change to the one pictured, moving the fender, and maybe some shocks.
Ok, so here's the thing, my wife is constantly going on about us getting fitter and eating healthier.
Sure i want to be fit enough for general life and to be around to play with my grandchildren, but at what point is to much, because if you spend your life eating healthy and staying fit, theres a good chance you will live long, and living long means you need more money. I know i don t want to have to work until i am 80 just because i have been fit and healthy and am going to live until i am 100, and i don t want to retire a 65 and be broke by the time i am 85 with another 15 years to go.
When do you say stuff it, with eating health and depriving yourselve of food you love & working out 3 or more times a week?
I know my parents and grand-parents did not have such a focus on these things, so why do we?
and if this mentality has grow over a couple of generations then how what kind of monster will it continue to grow into for future generations?
