So what have you done today..?

  1. Last of 3 days on track at Almeria, the best of the 3 days for me having found my mojo today. Our bikes behaved flawlessly although that could not be said for some. 3 bikes unrepairable in the time and 2 or 3 fairings rebuilt with gaffer tape, 1 broken little finger and scaifoid and 1 broken wrist. Far too many red flags but that seems to be the norm now instead of using yellows. Long drive tomorrow but Barcelona for 3 days at the end of it. Andy

  2. @Kingfixer, your company was missed and I made sure Frankie wasn’t lonely. Next time you speak to him, ask him what happened to his bung and engine mount bolt or I should say ask the bloke that was behind him when they parted company from his bike :scream: Andy

  9. Been an expensive month....why is it when anyone in my fucking family needs a cheap flight (Bristol to edinburgh this time for example) to every other c**t its 30 quid....200 fucking quid each (daughter and wife). Boiler broke down last week. Got the worcester boiler bloke in....write off....just had to spunk 1500 on a new one....and ive not even mentioned the Hypermotard repairs...
     
  10. I agree. I've spent a couple of grand already this past month (over and above the money on buying the new bike) and I have no idea what on cos I've got the square root of fuck all to show for it. And it doesnt stop there........#2 son and family are coming over to stay at the weekend and good old dad/grandad will be copping for everything thanks to the endless generosity of SWMBO :/
