What's up SHORG!
« on: August 18, 2016, 08:47:04 PM »
Wanted to check in and say HEY to the old-school crew still stumbling around here!  Been a long time since I poked my head in, I enjoy catching up on the latest news and see some old faces.
It'll be a year next month I've been street bike-less, that's the longest in 27yrs!  I get the itch when guys like Canadian Mike send me pics of his badass projects, thanks buddy! :)

Just wanted to say hi, miss everyone!
Matt

I am sorry that the response is so pathetic apart from two of us.
Almost 800 visitors a day and no one can be arsed to post anything or reply when someone does.
A sad state of affairs.
Needs some PMA round here.

I came back to the board a year ago after been bike less for a few years, I did notice that a lot of the old crew were no longer around...I remember when you could post a pic or had a question, and by the time you hit post and grab a beer you would have two or three response waiting...lol

Hi not so big guy !  :D
You still losing some?

I am off into Birmingham city centre any minute.
We will be going into the new Grand Central shopping centre...... sounds ghey hu?
My face will no doubt be scanned by the all seeing eye they've got there. I hope I break it  :P
I stand out in a shopping centre like a Rottie in a poodle show, but my litte lady is having her hair done and I'm her minder for the day.
We will no doubt have to walk through the mulsamics ranting on street corners opposite the christains ranting on other steet corners.
Just STFU?

Have a good day whatever you are doing  8)

Take out and beers then !!  :lol:

I picked up the exhaust collars for my K*w*s*k* from the machine shop yesterday.
Going to paint them in the morning and then hope to have the pipes fully fitted very soon after.
They are on and new gaskets in place, just need to fit the collars and flanged nuts.

That's why I do my own work on bikes.
They sting you on labour and parts prices.
Nearly $400 just for fork seals.  Dick Turpin style!  :lol:

You know I did some checking and for a reg bike shop or a dealer, with there shop labor rates $100+ dollars a hour thats not really out of line, I did my own, home made tools, and it was a pain in the ass, and honestly if I did it for someone I would have charged dam near that, in fact in dude at work, he was a salesman, needed his Honda done (fork seals) he asked and I told $200 if he supplyed the seals and oil, he never did get it done, ???

That's pretty much the way I saw it too bro,by the time I got the tools and parts,then dealt with the aggravation(especially if I got shit all back together and they still leaked and would have to tear it apart again :lol:)I guess the $240 for labor is on par about anywhere and I know they're done right.I don't mind helpin' to support a small/good shop every now and then,everybody has to eat. :lol:
