    Nah! What I will say - in my capacity of medical doctor of marginal analysis (MDMA) - is that what seems to be happening is that your lower body is expanding, while the top part is remaining the same. Could be beneficial.

    But... on the other hand, hope it all improves!
    Well, I thought I had some special buttons now, but some people have even specialer buttons.

    Everybody meet in Exford between 11 - 12 am. If you want to meet fellow riders beforehand that's fine.

    Excellent, I always like to be 'pre-armed' before a meeting, I will throw that one at the hospital doctors on Friday

    Thanks to JohnGs suggestion "chemical cork" is on my list of must haves to carry on the bike! You never know.

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    Chemical cork has to be nicer than some man made butt plug I would imagine, is there such a thing? I just came back form the vets with my Springer, (typical female, she's still suffering from a phantom pregnancy (lactating) so we had to cancel her being spayed for a second time). While there I lifted her from floor to table and felt a pop in my left side for the first time in a week which confirms two things.......I can make out it doesn't hurt in front of an attractive young vet, (as opposed to a bunch of gnarly, hairy arsed ageing bikers), I will still be uncomfortable enough not to want to ride too far.

    I will drop down to Gordano Saturday to say 'hello' without expecting an ounce of pity, (I do feel a bit of a wimp and probably wouldn't hand out any either for such a daft thing), but it's something I'll end up cussing all day.

    We professionals refer to it as CDEiVO or Corporeal Differential Expansion in a Vertical Orientation. Yup. Tell 'em that. I'm available for second opinions anytime, Pete. My rates are very reasonable.

    Professional analysis time again... this is a condition usually referred to as... VATIYW (Vain Attempt to Impress Young Women). Extremely common syndrome. Nothing to worry about.

    Oh no, that has reminded me of the best Amazon review (and subsequent storm) that I ever read ..... and thankfully somebody has preserved the original review Veet Hair Removal Gel for Men ? Funniest Review EVER! ? Rats-FunnyBone.com

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    Weather not looking bad, bit of sun, possibility of the odd drop of 'liquid sunshine' but otherwise dry and warm

    Had the mill, power saw, grinders and welder operating today ..... can still see, all digits intact and didn't manage to set myself alight so all is good here.

    See fellow attendees tomorrow.

    Been the odd shower around these parts today, but mainly hot and sunny. Supposed to be one or two showers around tomorrow. Ride safe everyone and see you all at Exford.

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    I don't know what you lot are planning on, but I'm planning to step out of the front door just at the finish of a brief shower and not see a further drop all day...

    See y'all there!

    Try not to upset Adeyren then (who is at a B&B in Exford tonight) as after calling into my place this afternoon where it's been blue sky, warm and sunny all day, by the time he got to Taunton he hit the Thunderstorms and nearly got drowned. Reckoned he had to park up for a while as it was so bad. I've been asked to take along my Multimeter as water seems to have got into his electrics.

    So, after that I'm taking my waterproofs but hoping for sun all day, forecast says we could be lucky or more probably meet some variable showers.

    Looking forward to meeting you all at Exford.

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    Very nice to meet you guys this morning, even the one who swanned in on a swanky BMW appeared quite normal. Would like to of continued on but would of been belly aching after another hour in the saddle. Hopefully you all met up safe/dry and no fights broke out over timings, or while poking fun at poor Ade getting a drowning.

    D'....Neutral light was a success at fixing but I don't know for sure what was wrong with it. I pulled sprocket cover, made sure it was connected properly at plug with a good wiggle then all was well so might of been a bad contact? Ran up and down through the box numerous times with no sign of it blinking back on (as opposed to being on in all gears) so, sorted for now.
