    Projects At Home During Lockdown

    Heres a thread to post up progress on all that fun stuff you're going to get up to over the next few weeks at home.
    I've brought all the bike cleaning & polishing products home from the workshop, the water blaster, leaf blower etc etc.
    Lets see what we can achieve over the next while, & don't forget to share the fun, bike related or otherwise.
    Positive stuff only.

    ...and in the same vein but the opposite, my two major projects are now on hold...my sidecar means a fair bit of travel to get things underway and that is kind of off the radar, and likewise with a flat track bike I'm building...I have a house to finish, ours...maybe my wife will be on a win over the next month...and I've been too busy of late to get enough firewood for winter sorted...the 400Four on the other hand will have a few hours spent on it to make it run...just got the carbs back after being rebuilt...

    It seems a bit tame after riding but I enjoy pottering in the garden. The soil is crap for vegetables but I grow a lot of bromeliads and other semi-tropical stuff. The next few weeks should let me do a bit of thinning out. We also bought a Vegepod for growing salad veggies. What a fantastic device. Not only do they grow quickly, they don't take much looking after and just a few steps from the kitchen.

    Got a few jiobs to do on the CB550. It's coming up to another oil/filter change and I'll drop the sump pan and clean the oil pick up screen. Should be due for rear tyre replacement about then as well. Got plans for a few more things to do on the XF650. Obviously a few rides are on the cards on both m/cs. A few home improvement tasks to carry out as well. A spare room renovation and remove old decking trellising.

    I haven't been given the full list. Yet.

    But I have a new green house to fill, comfy chair first, and a GG Randonee which desperately needs the suspension linkage bearings greased. Should have bought one of those skinny spanners months ago. Oh well. Plenty of time for tool polishing, er, filing.

    Might try and make a dining room table out of a Macracapa slab if I can figure out what to use for legs.

    The problem I have with Harleys is that regardless, I seem to look like Postman Pat when I ride one.

    On the news tonight Mitre 10 and others doing a huge trade in timber and other materials for home projects. I hope everybody is taking extra caution as they work because the hospitals aren't going to be pleased with an influx of injured do-it -yer-selfers.

    At Mitre10 Petone this morning there were three queues of at least 10 people each at the paint counter.
    it's not a bad thing till you throw a KLR into the mix.
