Re: What made you smile today....

I smiled after a great food styling photo shoot today (been shooting all week for a new menu in one of our restaurants).
After 4 days hard slog setting up sets & doing reference, today was very rewarding.
It may sound easy doing this, but it definately isn't... fucking frustrating at times.
The thought of extra days off next week after a shit long week this week is awesome.
I promised my daughter a special treat on family day (another smile), and maybe a quick lap on the thou will broaden the grin.
I also smiled when thinking of my newly purchased rearsets for my SRAD...
(Thanks for your help Armi!).
I finally secured a set of Gilles rearsets. Now for the chain adjusters to match...
Cheers, Ad

A '96 model 750: a dusting of Harris, a cupful of Yoshi camshafts, some Ohlins essence, a slight sprinkle of Marchesini magnesium, some Keihin kindness, a bit of Brembo, a smattering of EBC, the caress of carbon fibre bodywork, a brace of Gilles rearsets, triple snorkle c/f airbox + kit radiator to suit... Maybe more to come...

Re: What made you smile today....

While having our first trip to the park with the new addition I saw this!!



Not only the squirrel eating the sarnie from the bin (didn't like the brown bread, was just eating the filling!!!), the actual bins is amazing!!

Re: What made you smile today....

Showing up to a 1,300 ft³ warehouse that I am supposed to move the company I work for in, with 2,748 ft³ worth of product alone.

It made me smile and laugh. (That and the squirrel pic 2 posts above)
Then got another headache on top of horrible allergy migraine!
