Buggered back

Hey Steve. Iím getting a small taste of your life and it sux. On the couch for a few days with a bad back. Off work until Thurs and bored shitless. At least I get a chance to catch up on everyones threads.

I donít know how you handled this doing nothing shit for months on end, and mineís only a pretend sore back compared to yours.

It was more the stupid garden thing. Iíve cut, split, and carted over 10 cord of firewood over this last few months and never had a problem. Lift a stupid outdoor bench seat and Iím a cripple. At least I didnít fall off a roof.

Best thing for keeping a healthy back is a heat pump

gardening accidents are a blight on the economy and cost the country millions every year in lost production and ACC costs...all gardens should be taxed

Wot??? Our chief picture taker person is laid up, hope ya back on 2 feet (and wheels) soon mate. Ive had some back issiues in the past including a couple of ops and walking was always my best remedy (if you can). Got me going again long before the "experts" reckoned I would be able to.

New exhaust

Just back from Cycleworks after Damon built Gus a new Y pipe & link to the SV1000 Muffler. Both in stainless. Sound slightly fatter than stock, but way better than the 2 into 2. And I got Damon to adjust the centrestand, so that is now back on the bike.







Need to rebuild the valeo starter this afternoon.

Postscript 4th June:
Dropped Gus back at Cycleworks for some remedial attention to allow wheel removal. This should be completed tommorrow.

Sir Gus looks bloody good bro.
Have you taken him for a pootle around the block? If you haven't ridden it do you expect to notice any power gain?

What's that big box on your wall by your door?
