    Every time i ride my bike for say one hour i have to spend three cleaning it,
    why are English roads so wet and dirty, and also but not least i am sure i have caught pneumonia, sneezing and high temp, i hope i live long enough
    to ride in the sun just one time.

    and not going to take it any more! (hang in there, organization is harder to achieve than entropy, as some basic principle tells us.)

    You should ride longer and clean less. I have a black Softail that was not washed last year nor (so far) this year. It works well (tries to throw you of the back if you twist the right grip) and it feels as dangerous as ever.

    Shame on you, or may be you have clean roads, if i did not clean my bike
    for that long the wheels would not turn through muck build up.
    And you ride a hardly davidson/ straight line tractor.

    If it makes you feel any better, I ride a scooter, (like a moped thing) and the muffler fell off cause it rattled so much. Then when I got that fixed, it turned out there was a nail going through the tire... I'm waiting to get that fixed still...

    I do get to ride around in the sun though.... course its 110F here... I have nosebleeds more often than I can count...

    Thats rotten luck, and 110f is just to hot, how do you function, or are the
    nose bleeds a warning?

    Did every thing turn out ok for you?

    I live in Ontario. It's always perfect weather for motorcycling.

    Have you considered moving elsewhere?

    I heard English weather is just brutal. I don't know how anyone could live in that.

    Totally. It suffices to look at one single Wimbledon match to convince yourself.

    Have you considered mounting a 12 volt sunlamp on your bike?

    Woolie's got one of those twee English bikes in which the engine and electrical systems are nearly afterthoughts. His 6 volts could well be a pack of 4 D-cells. :rofl: (Rides away quickly on my "tractor" to an undisclosed location!) :surprised

    Yeah, nose bleeds are from the dry, hot heat. Its miserable sometimes, but its way too much fun riding around to find some other mode of transport. Moose had a thread about the heat... Its Arizona, deserts are hot eh?

    And I still haven't gotten my scooter fixed. I'm strapped for cash, so it'll have to wait. Walking in 110F isn't any fun either....

    And hi Evo and Hypatia! Wasn't sure i'd be recognized in with my new fancy gold lettering. Things have been... pretty good... How're you all?

    Gale, you will have to shout or Evo will not hear you.

    English people do not even know what 110f is :smile:
