  1. Oh, and PLEASE tell me that's not the same damned Tourance rear / TKC80 front that it was wearing when I sold it half a decade ago...
  2. Holy crap it's back to haunt me (but at least it isn't the Lexmoto) I do actually kinda miss that one at times. It would've been a pretty nice bike if it hadn't been in such shite condition when I got it! By the time it was all fixed up, I didn't want to see it again I'm glad it has a decent home, although more than a little pissed to hear the the interim home neglected it once again. I remember what a bast*rd it was getting the swingarm off the first time I did it, too!
  3. Honestly I hadn't thought about it any detail yet. Work is busy as hell and I mostly just idly browse the forum on my phone during poop breaks.
  4. Yeah, I can probably find a good moment to bunk off work and throw some ideas together... let me know when you wanna run with the idea
  5. Cheers all! (Not dead, woo)
  6. How is it that the first 10 days of my holiday where I stayed home and didn't socialize with anyone by choice felt like sheer luxury, but the last 4 days of staying home and not socializing because I have to feels like utter crap!
  7. The fact that other people do even more risky things does not change the fact that an open flame inside a tent is a ridiculously daft risk to take
  8. I have that one too (and the green handled pans shown in the photos, oddly enough) - it's pretty stable on the whole! All I'd say is you want to ensure you lay the gas pipe out smoothly so there aren't any kinks that could cause it to tilt, and of course as with any camping stove it's only as stable as the pan you put on it. The lower center of gravity makes it a lot more stable than the kind that clip directly onto the gas canister; probably the most stable camping stove I've owned aside from the large briefcase-style ones, which are amazing unless you're trying to travel light. More a treat for car-camping than something you want to hike or bike with. The fold-out windbreak that comes with it is pretty shite but that's not the end of the world. Overall, I recommend it highly! And of course, I would in no way wish to be seen as endorsing the use of a camping stove inside the tent no matter how stable, if you go up in flames it's all on you
  9. Morning all! No snow in sight here (aside from the week old patches where the sun never shines). I wonder how long it'll be until I get my next full blown blizzard? If I were a betting man I'd say late February. Somewhere around the 20th.
  10. Update on the silly shit at the office: Turns out that not only did he potentially exposure me to the virus, he also continued to go into the office for a few days after the party he went to (prior to telling me that I might be at risk, at which point he was instructed to f**k right off and work from home indefinitely). And guess which two other team members were in the office that day? The Manager and the Team Lead. So add in that I'm the Director, he officially exposed the entire f**king management hierarchy of his department. Also fun, we have our first few news stories about pharmacists intentionally destroying the vaccine: https://nypost.com/2021/01/01/this-pharmacist-was-arrested-after-hundreds-of-covid-19-vaccine-doses-were-destroyed/ https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/2020/12/31/500-doses-covid-19-vaccine-thrown-out-hospital-worker-aurora-removed-from-fridge-on-purpose-grafton/4098837001/ No word yet on whether they were an anti-vaccers, Qanon nutjobs, or some other flavor of idiot.
  11. Very well argued and rather satisfying to watch. Thanks for sharing that!
  12. Depending on when they kick me out, I might even be able to buy it back from you
  13. Get deported, buy a bike once back in the UK, travel around a bunch and generally give up on living a sensible life. Bloody tired of things always going pear shaped, time to take a page out of my brother's book
