If you don't have the accessories you can only order them online but when you get them no one knows with no one working to pack and send the item and then if it did show up.
I wanted to work on the bike I can't.
My garage is five minutes away so I don't think it would be classed has being self-isolation.

I'm a truck driver classed as an essential worker also classed as high risk due to age and medical bits and bobs . still working 60 hours a week . too knackered at weekends to do any of the above mentioned projects but managed a 2 hour ride out on Saturday it felt great . Might be the last for a while . Still plenty of muppets in tin cans out there ignoring what's going on their probably the buggers that have caused the crisis in the shops. keep the faith people we're not done yet . Its just time to plan your next adventure.

Took a ride Sunday to help a friend with a battery problem,30 miles of nearly empty motorway,bliss both ways...using the bikes to maintain my isolation from others on the way to work and back, tinbox drivers don't wear gloves or neck tubes and helmets....driving the vulnerable and elderly in a charity minibus hopefully lowers my risk of infection..but have to try and get these (often very worried) elderly folk to shops and back,in a safe manner and minimising their problems where possible...normally have 14 -16 passengers on a Tuesday..today 2..:/>
Stay safe people..x

Grino I fully agree with your thoughts.

In desperate times, such as these, people need to realise how important these essential key workers are, including drivers, They put up with danger, log jammed roads, drivers hours & regulations, unsociable hours, plus extreme stress and tight deadline schedules.

I sometimes think people don't give it thought, on how items (food or other) appear on the shelves. I feel they think it happens as if by magic. 👍
Please spare a thought when buying your next item.

As a driver myself it baffles me as to how can they call 95 % of the loads on the roads essential there not its just the companies saying yes we will take that the only loads that should be on the roads are medical food and the like this BS of containers of parts for places like JCB JLR and many other companies that are closed should be left in storage untill such time as this calms down a lot

I drive fuel tankers and I can tell you fuel is running out the refineries have cut back production and the terminals are struggling to meet demands .we are cutting customers orders back taking part loads to try to make it go round .Its only a matter of time if it keeps going as it is and they'll be rationing the fuel . But that's ok if every ones off the road it won't be a problem

Clap For Carers, just taken place in my street, all houses on their doorsteps, clapping and rattling pans of all descriptions! Think we made enough noise for most of G-Town.

Hats off and HUGE THANK YOU to all Blue Light Services and everyone involved in the effort to beat this devastating virus. 👒🎩
