I left my bike at the shop, yesterday arvo, to get the insurance repairs done. While she's in there, I'm getting some engine and brake work done and new rubber fitted. When she comes out, she'll be beautiful again, will go like stink, stop on a dime and stick like sh*t to the road. I can't wait!
But, how will I cope while she's in there? What will I do when I've got that urge to ride? Jump on Mrs Tree's 250??? That won't cut it. It's like being on a BMX compared to my big girl.
To make the wait even worse, I bought a tank bag yesterday. So, I've got this brand new tank bag, but no bike to put it on.
Oh, God, I can feel the shakes starting already...
Cookee, if you find yourself running through the house wearing that tankbag on your head while carrying the missus on your back, take ARK's advice. Not a bad idea, I might do it myself if I don't have my bike back together by spring.

Thanks, guys, you've cheered me up! I might have to try the beer and MotoGP idea. Certainly can't hurt!!
Someone on the Aussie forum suggested I spend heaps of time on the 250, so that when I get the 1100 back, it'll be like starting on her again for the first time. I kinda like that logic and it means I don't have to wear a tank bag on my head.
I thought about hitting up the shop for a loaner bike, but it was a Suzuki dealer. I couldn't forgive myself if I rode a Suzy!
I wear my helmet and jacket around the house when I get separation anxiety. It makes me feel better... but I live alone and work from home so I think 'who cares'! A pizza guy came to the door once and thought I was odd. Heheh
