I bloody well hope so. 

Various injuries during the year including busting up my ribs when I crashed my F650GSD and stuffing my back during a trip on my K75.  Could it be the year I catch covid?   :thud:

Anyway, a happy new year to the inmates.   :beerchug:

Happy New Year all  :beer:

Front tyre proving troublesome today - bead was OK now I know to use the big vise and don't take any prisoners. But it would not come off and my 2' tyre levers were going to break something. It still put up a struggle even after being hacksawed! The rim was worse than the rear one, loads of rubber & Alloy corrosion that had to be mostly scraped off with a knife. Scotchbrite for another hour and it came up OK.

I think whoever changed them last time used a machine and did not bother cleaning anything.

New tyre was a bit of a bag to fit in 11C but straighforward. Popping onto the rim is going to be trouble again! 50PSI and a bumpy road did it last time.
