Steelworker,
              I loved doing bike rallies in the 80's. Did loads in the UK, Belgium,and Holland. must have 50 or 60 badges still. Great memories to be had by looking at them occasionally and reminiscing with mates. We loved the St.Nicks in Ostende at the old velodrome around the 6th December.

Yes, I can sympathise will all the above.
After 4 decades of camping rallies another possible year of lockdown is giving me severe withdrawl symptoms.
I did explore the possibility of finding a field somewhere, in the middle of nowhere and camping on my own but after the 4th January govt.notice,I can't do that either.
I always do an oil change mid January to prepare for the biking season but as virtually no mileage last year, I don't s'pose it's worth it. But there again, it's something to do!

Yep, it's really frustrating, I guess all we can do is wait for things to get better. I would be fantastic to get two weeks holiday on the bike this year although I'd be grateful for a long weekend.. Anything,actually!

I know how you feel!

Picked up a CBF in June, done a grand total of around 300 miles, 150 of those were riding home after picking it up!  Managed a socially distanced ride out with a couple of friends and the wife (she's a biker too) around North Wales and I met the wife from work a couple of times just to get out of the house (been working from home since March).

Sat here with one of the best all round touring bikes there is and nowhere to go  :012:

Just got the Biffer MOTeed. Last year, under the influence of Covid, I did a moon-and-back total of 1,137 miles. Given that I have managed a 3 1/2 mile walk every day as my daily exercise, plus extras like going to get the paper, walk to the bin, amble round the garden, etc. it means I have walked further than I have motorcycled. Karl Benz, eat your heart out.

Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring / Sudden cutting out
« Last post by justincbf1000 on Yesterday at 06:17:01 PM »
Occasionally over the past two weeks or so when I turn key the normal noise of the pump doesn't sound and she won't Start. After a few turn on/offs, eventually the noise is heard and she has started. However she does smell a bit of petrol! That was it until recently - when she starts, suddenly she cuts out, no warning. It is almost as if I had hit the kill swith or when you put the side stand down when in gear but I had not done any of those. Weirdly it happens a few times in a row within a minute or so then once I get going seems OK. Anyone got any ideas?
