is it Covid safe?



I actually liked the look


What has been seen cannot be unseen

Hopefully the police bike that watched me riding down the breakdown lane on the M5 yesterday cuts me some slack due to my bikes COVID-19 PPE compliance..

Oil cooler was a little tricky, but it is on and doesn't leak...yet....

Still don't have a temp gauge for it, I'm looking for a dip stick oil temp gauge.

The bike did get well hot in traffic though, air cooled bikes and traffic jams are not good bed fellows. 

Adds about 200ml to the system

In other news, my jacket is being held up by COVID "apparently", hopefully no #becauseCovidexcuse for my high stall

Waiting for parts is tiresome...I need my high stall and I want it now... 

Today was a big cleaning day though, took the Mrs to Goulburn in the SS to lunch with the daughter last week and the car got smashed by bugs, then, the next day......I rode the bike to Goulburn to lunch with the  daughter, again......yeap, hitting a swarm of bugs at 110kph makes a mess of that Dart screen.

I'm really glad I got that screen, I was only wearing a light kevlar jacket and the bugs that hit my biceptacons stung like a bitch, I would hate to be taken them "in the face", the canola is in bloom and the bugs are thick as 10 thick things.

In other news I have officially stopped looking for a new car, I'm really enjoying driving the old Commonwhore, it's mad comfy, and lays mad skids.

Got a talking too because the cars exhaust was to loud today, it was for a breath test, the cop doing the test was called over and talked to by another older cop.

In the end they "recommended" that I quieten it down sooner rather than later

It was a fair call really, whilst it sounded good with a rear muffler delete, when I was on the loud pedal, it was really loud.

It was also a little droney on the Hwy especially with the 3.91 gears it would sit around 2.3k rpm doing a dollar ten, it didn't really bother me, but Jackie and the kids said the car was "boomy", and with a big road trip for me and Jackie planned for January, the more peaceful I can get the interior the less whinging will unfold.

So, the Pacemaker rear box is back on and now, the car is too quiet......

In other news, waiting for the new converter to turn up is painfull, I was told it could be 6 to 8 weeks, so far it has been 5.....

I drove my car today for the first time since... May? March? Something like that.

I cannot hear my exhaust. Opening or closing the Varex is a "Is this.. open or closed? I cannot tell" kind of deal.
So at least you can enjoy your exhaust and not.. a myriad of other sounds I am yet to figure out how to resolve. Maybe the Commo design is good for something after all!
