I couldn't agree more about making lists like that! I use that method... very very often. If I didn't, I'da been in a psych ward by now LOL!!

I do wish Pops had the $$ to have a better heating system installed at his garage. No, that's not accurate. The heating system is good, actually... it's the building that is ancient and needs to be insulated better. Plus, I feel guilty racking up his heat bill on the weekends when he's not open and making money. Sounds like we need to move to a warmer climate!!! Problem solved :D :D :D :cool: :cool: :cool:

Hahahaha yep they're handy alright! I have one for my work I need to do that sits outside of my team's job queues and Kanban board as well as one for stuff I need to do around home and of course one for the Kat... which is close to done  :icon_mrgreen:

Warmer climate is definitely the right answer! There's this place called Australia...  :icon_lol:

The hand grips for the Kat arrived yesterday and got them on last night, so that's it, she's now 100% complete!  :woohoo:

Providing the weather cooperates tomorrow it's wash/polish/wax then time to hurry up and wait to get it organised for the on roads stuff... hopefully early to mid June.

Well the weather cooperated, so I got the wash/polish/wax done as well as getting the TSCC engine cover decals on, so that's it, she's ready!

I even got a bit of sun for some final in the driveway happy snaps...

Found a few teething issues on the first ride out with the Kat folk yesterday, but nothing major and nothing to take away from enjoying it  :thumb:

The ride was awesome, and we had 8 Kats turn up including mine which was fantastic, with perfect winter weather also  :woohoo:

Cheers mate! Yeah it's awesome to finally be a part of one of those line ups too, been in attendance for a number of them over the last few years and been itching to get my Kat in there... now at last I can :D

Anyone heard from Yama lately? He's been a little absent... last login was mid April...

Yay forum's back, couldn't post yesterday... something new? Well, gotta finish the loose ends on the Kat first... getting main jets sorted (going to do some test rides tomorrow with throttle positions marked) is the first thing, I've hopefully solved an oil weep from the neutral switch which was the next thing. I also need to sort out a floppy left mirror which is mucho annoying when riding as it will hold position until about 80kph when it will droop due to air pressure. I can still buy proper fair dinkum brand new Kat mirrors which I might do in a few months but right now no budget for it. Then there's the business of rebuilding the head so I can give the loaner head back, and that will be early to mid next year.

Something new will be a little while away yet :D
