    Oof - what happened to the finger? Can you get a slide over the bandage?
    90% of the time I come up with a line or tune I love, I realise where I've lifted it from a few days later. Humbling.

    I'm still pissing around noodling over 251s. I'd never really thought outside pentatonic / blues much before aside from some mixolydian stoner rock diddling. It's fun. Every now and then I get this locked box, unlocking feeling.

    That’s lush mate! Handy for the races at Dundalk too, I’ve always wanted to check them out.

    I avoid reading anything like that. Have to say in all my years motorcycling, the vast preponderance of my accidents have been entirely self inflicted. Being a twat has been a common theme. Fortunately only a tiny minority have involved other vehicles or exotic factors such as engines seizing mid corner.

    Certainly don't think motorcycles are given the benefit of the doubt anymore than bicycles are though.

    Oh - I borrowed a green THR10 for a bit. Love it! Have to say, I don’t really need or want any of the effects but the blackface and bluesbreaker tones are great and in a sign of encroaching old mandem, I really dig my strat through the flat channel.

    Another year or two you’ll be on the Zithers. Seriously though, that’s dead cool - would love to hear what you play on it. I’m barely in control of 6 strings!

    @jambon - definitely worth noting on your Aprilia dude. I did a set of OEM seals on my mate's 09 Tuono and they lasted less than 6 months. One of the scrapers had completely separated. I remember they felt a bit hard when I put them in. Went with Showa aftermarket ones the next time and they were notably more pliable. Same seals, just not sat on a shelf in Dallas for 10 years.

    ....just noticed. You have the gold...get them from an ohlins tech, not the Ape dealer.

    Spot on mate, the real stiction issues are when the bike is loaded up on the brakes or on it's ear.
    My only observation on fork seals, having tried most OEM and el cheapo aftermarket ones is the newer they are, the better. OEM stuff that's been sat on the shelf for a decade can get a bit brittle.

    Man, internet build your own guitar shite is a rabbit hole of epic proportions. I'm absolutely going to have to build a Tweed Deluxe now too. Don't need one but I'm not going to be happy again as a middle-aged guitar fondler without having poisoned myself with flux fumes and gotten bit by a capacitor or two....

    I'm having Tele envy. Nice sound!

    I had a Guv'nor years ago. Looked like it had been dipped in Hammerite. Not exactly subtle if I remember.
