(lol)

I'm not even sure I've cracked 500 miles in the last 2 years, I'm not convinced another bike would help!

MV storage available at decent rates though!

Congrats Itchy!

And I’ve bought 4 houses so far and I haven’t grown up yet, so I wouldn’t worry too much!

I've said this before...

Men don't grow up, they just grow older. :)

Off to ride some Downhill near where I used to work with a friend. I have the exact same nerves I get before riding a new circuit on a trackday.

So far I have carefully dismantled an old chair and glued it back together again, it was coming apart.

Cleaned my powder coated wheels for the cage with isopropyl alcohol and coated them with gtechniq C2, blacked the tyre's then bolted them to the car, stacked the winter set on a trolly.
One of the refurbished ones has dropped a weight so that'll be fun and 1 was at 45psi... Glad I checked.

Now wondering where to go on the trumpet.

Hurling abuse at a stranger , just got back from my mate Simons we were chatting in the car as we pulled up and at a quick glance I thought it was another of my mates just outside my house , so I shouted some abuse at him as you do to mates , and when he turned around it wasn't who I thought it was , I apologised and beat a hasty retreat .

Answered a post on our local community FB page.

A courier had accidentally gone down a dead end steep road that turns to dirt and got stuck down the bottom in his van.

Jumped at the chance to break out the recovery gear I’ve bought for 4WDing (but yet to use in anger) and put the wagon to good use.

Winched him clear of a natural drainage channel he’d got stuck in, then towed him up the hill till he was back on proper tarmac.

I’ve had multitudes of thanks over FB from everyone that still managed to get parcel deliveries today in the area.

I just went so I could play with my winch (lol)

It's a bit convoluted,...one guy, who I'd just exited the house for testing dirty, went out to score some drugs...meth, I think.
Anyway, he bought them from an undercover cop, got high, and then decided to come back here for his stuff.... bringing the cops in tow.
I get it, I understand....one sober-living house with about ten guys coming & going on a daily basis, looks a lot like one drug-house with several dozens doing the same thing.
No harm, no foul as far as I'm concerned.

Mindfulness Seminar through work.. not really a learning exercise for me but hopefully a reminder of things I used to do but have stopped for some reason.
