Happy New Year
« on: 30.12. 2013 20:41 »
Hi Everyone
 A two pronged posting????
Firstly I would like to wish everyone on the forum and their families all the best for the new year  *smile*  *smile* *smile*

Ok so what else????
Well over the weekend I wasn't feeling too bright
And this morning presented myself to the local A&E unit
Anyway long story short, on Tues am
I'm heading for open surgery to remove a grossly inflamed appendix
And hopefully not too much more ????

So I would like to ask you all to project positive thoughts in my direction??

It may be a few days before I'll be up to logging into the forum again
Cheers
John

Ah the old sludge trap problem again  ;)

All the best with the op John - remember to treat the cut with respect afterwards until it heals.

And to you and all Forum members all the best for 2014

John,

Get well, soon. We will be looking forward to your healthy return. Seems may be a good thing they found the "sludge trap problem," as Bill says, before it lets go and mucks-up the bearings.

All,

Best wishes for a happy and safe New Year for all here and your families.

Happy New year, and good luck to all...
May your sludge trap plugs fall out on the bench while your away grabbing a refreshment,
may your cylinders always be within tolerance,
may you always have adequate oil pressure, air in the tires, and petrol in the tank!

Well John,  here's hoping the surgery went well and that you get on the road to complete recovery very soon.

I'm  reading the forum,and trying to learn as much as I can in preparation for riding  the A10. I haven't ridden it for over ten years and am studying the advice on oils, spark plugs, fuels and stuff that has been given to other readers. It is running well after having the carb repaired by a man who is very experienced with old bikes and tractors etc. Now of course I want to keep it that way and not do anything that I shouldn't with lubes etc. I'm hoping to gain the knowledge and confidence to do my own maintenance and repairs with the help of you guys and your pool of knowledge and experience, which to my delight is freely given to those that ask. Thank you.

The very best to all on the forum, and to your families in the new year

Dave G:-)

Happy new year to all, especially those in need of a little modification or refurbishment.  I think we accept that adequate lubrication is a constant need all round.

John - get well soon or we'll be missing your wise words and wealth of experience.

I hope all went well with the surgery, & your on the mend, & back with us soon...   *wink2*

I too haven't been feeling well...

I had a bit of a upset stomach these last couple of days of 2013...
possibly from too much food, drinkies & a dodgy curry...  *beer*    *countdown*
So far today I'm having a Very Happy New Year ...

^^^ were you not warned (by SRM) to not fry the food in 20W50? Should have used straight 40.

Anyway, 2014 is here (where's 2013 gone??), and looking forward to another year of forum activity, there'll be some layout changes and forum upgrading done during this month, quite some preparations to be done. Meanwhile, keep the good tech posts coming.

Good to hear John.
 You'll feel better for it's removal. Pesky little things those appendix, we haven't needed them (vegans excepted) since we (humans) started eating meat instead of leaves.
 You'll be back in the saddle in no time.
