nice fish

Curses! Foiled!

mandelorean just texted me (amongst others I presume) to tell me that the bike place where his girlfriend works is having a Harley open weekend - come along and she'll organise a ride on a Harley/Buell for us.. and I can't as I'm still recovering from this tonsilectomy! AAAAAARGH! kissycat1000 and I have just finished watching The Long Way Round, a series about Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman's trip around the world on motorcycles (I originally started riding motorcycles because I wanted to go around the world on one, so this is a bittersweet thing, although there's still plenty of time to do it if I can get it all together at some point). In the last episode, they got to ride on some wild custom choppers which reminded me of my passion for cruisers (my first bike was a cruiser [alright: in the style of]). ev1ldonut has also always been keen on them as well..

My bike has had the work done to it and was waiting to go to the tuners to be properly set up. Unfortunately the tuning centre chap got a bit of metal in his eye from a lathe and was rushed to hospital - poor chap. This also means that my bike is sitting there *pouts*.

As I've been shut inside with contact only from those already close to me (doctor's orders), I've had the chance to do little else but be rather geeky. Apologies made for the following only if you think I need to ;)

My recovery continues to go well. I'm less tired and in less pain all the time, so that's good :)
