Ouch ! How did you manage to do that ?
I got attacked by a bear, believe it or not (albeit a small one). Managed to fight it off though.
Attacked by a Bear? :lol:

I bet the EU are behind that shit! :lol:
No I think he means this:
“ Bear is a gay slang term. It describes a hairy, heavy-set (sometimes muscular) gay or bisexual man. A bear typically projects an image of rugged masculinity. Some bears present a very masculine, over-the-top image of a ruggedly masculine man.”

Good job he fought him off, although a broken finger is a bit suspicious, as it could have easily been done with a quick squeeze of the buttocks 😂😂😂😂

So it was an attempted gay rape incident then?

It would never have happened if @Six30 had got the Mod gig!

After picking up a puncture on Friday night I've taken the wheels off ready for a fresh set of Michelin Road 5 to be fitted tomorrow.

The tyre could probably be plugged but I'm a fan of the Road 5's so I'm using this as an excuse to swap the tyres out.

Stripped the chassis, ready for raking the steering head and shortening the forks.

Rode home from Barnard Castle to Gloucester in fog, heavy rain and wind. At least I know my latest waterproofs work! Not a lot of fun though and the whole of next week is shaping up to be more of the same old sh*t. :evil:

Kawasaki ER5...... refitted cams and caps, torqued the caps down, never like that on 6mm bolts. They also got a good coating of build oil as well before assembly.
