nice fish

General work and bike ramblings

As you all know it's been rather hectic the last few weeks. This, coupled with the depression in the market and knock-on effect for our morales here, the lack of work and the lack of reward/recognition for our work has left me feeling rather down. Of course, I'm not the only one feeling down, and in fact as far as work goes I've actually been usefully employed for longer than some of my colleagues.

Unfortunately there was one other thing that pissed me off this morning - the bike was being a bitch. It died so badly when I tried to pull away that I ended up dropping it (read: overbalancing and ending up lying the bike down gently before picking it back up). It died a few more times as I was riding along and leaked petrol when I filled it up at the station (note to self: only fill up when ALREADY on the side stand...).

I called the garage to mention the problems and they assured me that it would be fixed by the carb strip at the weekend. I hope they're right or at least willing to do whatever it takes to fix it or they'll be hearing a side of me not many people do...
