New toy!


Things didn't quite work out with this - found I was punching way above my weight, literally. Too tall & way too modern for me, despite its 'back to basics' aspirations. So, sold it swiftly to a nice chap from Doncaster who was much more suited to it. After beating myself up over this rather arrogant mistake I've returned to my comfort zone of the British bike & will shortly be picking up my 'new' BSA Bantam. So small & light that it makes me feel like a giant, and about as intimidating as Miss Marple's knitting. I shall get the Box Brownie out & capture an image as soon as I can.

Look forward to it - my only biking experience was 'riding' a Bantam around some woods in the early 70's [would be accurate to say not so much riding as falling off] - when I [not the bike] hit a tree the owner decided it was best to call it a day...

We don't count the days of having a Honda 50 - which was a sturdy work horse commuting to Chester for a year or more - my weight reduced the top speed to about 20mph...

There's a lot to be said for 20mph!

Anyway, here's the Mean Machine. Comes complete with pipe & slippers.

Wednesday was an odd day. My curtains fell down & the electrics on my bike fried. And why is my laptop suddenly putting a black box around what I'm typing? :|

PS: It's awfully good to be back after the apocalypse.

One thing that didn't go away was the spammers - 12,600 had signed up since 11 March! Pity the background stuff didn't stop working!
