im in the same boat as you mate, but mine is industrial based, been told as its manufacturing it is not on the close list, so they aren't.  just going by government guidlines,,nobody is happy about it and is hard to explain to people why we are now key workers and paint becomes one of the main priorities in this time, we were even given a nicely worded letter to keep with us at all time to show the police when or if we are stopped, ALL we want to do is help save lives 

Yeah mate we're just been issued an official looking pass from the company to carry at all times to produce if we're stopped by the police whilst heading to or from work, i wanna know if the police class my trip to and from work as my essential trip out for the day how do i then head again to do some essential shopping without the police then stopping me again and hitting me with a bloody fine!

That is a beautiful JAP, what speedway bikes still should look and sound like!

You look to be taller than the average rider but still really stylish. Also, is that a 22" rear wheel?

Not me, it's a modern pic from the U.S.A. rider unknown.  A 22" rear wheel it is for sure, which were used there long after they were banned here, when Martin Ashby first rode over

there they were still in use then.

I wonder when the first policeman to say 'where are your papers?' will be. :unsure:

i suppose they would be different but then again we are in a grey area, no one gives answers .. take the food shopping for example,,, people being told to buy sensibly, but me and you need food for home and a weeks pack up, the canteen is closed and the vending machine is getting empty.  at least i know others are still open as i felt it was just us as others in our group around the world have closed

Our vending machines are no longer getting filled up and we don't have access to a canteen but have been advised to only have a maximum of 6 people in the rest room at any given time and observe the 2m rule, and wait for it, if we don't feel safe eating with others then eat in our cars! And getting back to the 2m rule we work closer then that on the shop floor!!

Quite bizzare! My brother works at a sweet packing factory in York and a similar scenario exists apparently.

Cardiff GP is looking vulnerable as they are going to turn the stadium into a temporary corona virus hospital.  Stay safe everyone.

You can also use your fingers to wipe your bottom when there is not a toilet roll in sight, but a crumpet in your hands is a thing of wonder!
