  1. Thank you so much, guys! I'm guilty of having been AWOL for a while now, but to be completely honest life has just got in the way... started a new full time job after over a year of zero income due to COVID; and was also working on a new photography business as a sideline... https://tonyangelimages.com Anyway, hope you're all well and I'll try to get back to participating here as soon as I have a bit of headroom!
  2. Try to replicate it so you can work out exactly what the cause was Seriously, sounds like oil/grease on the road. That said, if your throttle action was particularly lacking in refinement...
  3. This looks like the one I use (and will actually be using in about an hour's time). It works quite well, but the wheel needs lining up properly as it can move slightly as you turn it. It's a good alternative to a paddock stand if - like me - you find using the latter an absolute nightmare!
  4. Hi all - hope everyone is well, and apologies for going AWOL for a while (life stuff) Anyway, I have an unused Optimate O105 dual-USB to DIN charger that I can't use on my bike as it's right-angled and doesn't fit. Anyone want to swap it for a decent non-angled job (the Optimate version of what I want is the ref. O115)? Mine is this one.
  5. I miss having self-cancelling indicators, actually. It was never an issue on the R9T, but for some reason I forget to turn them off on the Thruxton. No idea why.
  6. Thank you! I'll drop you a PM rather bore everyone on the thread
  7. Thanks, and good luck to you too. It’s essentially going to be a headshot business (with some portrait photography for good measure). I have a new page already written for my existing website but it’s presently hidden, and will stay that way until I’ve uploaded the stock images that I need (and that’s the crux of the issue). What are you going to be up to?
  8. Absolutely right but I need people, unfortunately. It’s frustrating but I’ll get there eventually.
  9. Thanks Caroline. Well, It's eventually going to be a new photography-related business, but whilst we're in lockdown all I can do is prepare. I'm just waiting for some equipment to arrive, after which I need to get some portfolio shots together. I can then update my website, after which I can start some marketing (and then wait!).
  10. Yes, but I've been otherwise engaged trying to plan for a new venture (seeing as my existing one has been stuffed by COVID). Trying to keep an eye on what's going on, though, and thanks for asking
  11. Just to play devil's advocate, I ride a Thruxton (with clip-ons) and don't have any wrist discomfort at all after riding for long periods in stop/start London traffic. I think you'd definitely need to test ride the bike, though, as much depends on individual ergonomics.
  12. Bugger. Maybe a pro lab could salvage it if they know in advance what you did?
  13. Maybe a post-lockdown plan, then. Can't argue with Super Sausage.
