    Don't panic Pike!

    This week there was a letter in the London Daily Telegraph from a retired doctor, Dr George Birdwood, who qualified in 1953. He wrote: “I have been reflecting on how we would have reacted to a coronavirus epidemic in those days. The answer is not at all, for three main reasons. The Covid-19 virus could not have been identified rapidly enough, if at all. Most cases would have been too mild to attract attention in this season of coughs and sneezes. And the proportion of deaths among elderly people with chronic respiratory disease would have remained much as usual for the time of year. It follows that there would have been no alarm or counter-measures. International trade and travel would have carried on as usual. World stock markets would not have collapsed. And governments would not have needed to get involved. As it is today, we know too much about the coronavirus for our own good but almost nothing about treating its victims or preventing its spread.” What he says makes sense, how much fuss was there when we had Asian Flu in the late 50's and Hong Kong flu I think about 1980? And more recently Bird and Swine flu.
  2. Yay! Bird is back!! Had to fork out for a new generator/alternator AND a new Regulator / Rectifier ( the brand new one I fitted got fried by too high a voltage from the faulty generator).... so one big pile of cash later ..... hopefully all ok. @ David - waiting to see pics of your CX
  3. It appears the the "wizard" who fixed my bike didn't go to Hogwarts as I still have the charging issue. He must have gone to Bogwarts or Hogpimples academy so she will need to go back for further investigations............... @*##~** !!!! gggrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.........................
  4. The UK govt really messed up the process to get a full bike licence and made it difficult and expensive and very time consuming. Basically they hate bikes and bikers. The worst thing of all is that the law requires first 16y/o moped/scooter is restricted to 30mph! This makes it so dangerous as you cant even keep up with the traffic. Good news is that if your over 24 you can go for Direct Access. Taking direct access means you’ll have a full motorcycle licence without previously holding a licence for a smaller bike for two years – you’ll have no restriction on the size of machine you can ride This site does a really good job of explaining it http://www.geton.co.uk/motorcycle-training-licence/
  5. I wanted a CX500 when I passed by bike test (back in 1978! ) but ended up with an XS500 instead. Still a twin but inline and chain drive. Both bikes are popular to convert to flat trackers and cafe racers at the moment. Take a look at this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kjh2EqH7Ao I'm drooling! Yeah - post some pics of your CX. Would love to see them
  6. That HD's a beautiful ride! Love the paint scheme! Lol @ rubber side down! Nice! Here in England we say "Stay Shiny Side Up!" haha The Honda - is that the CX500? V twin? One of the most bullet proof bikes ever made....The US and UK have same bikes but often different names.
  7. Here is what the wizard at the motorbike shop handed me. Seems my battery charging issue was down to a bad connection. This caused this connector to overhead and start to melt. Luckily no fire! Had new chain and sprockets fitted so been out for a blast each night. You can't beat the sheer joy of a motorbike. Guys (and girls) - if you don't ride then start. Get a bike and get out there - I guarantee you will love it!
