I only really posted the picture for your personal amusement. Tight figure-of-eights were interesting due to the knee-handlebar interface

Actually the little bike wasn't anything like as cramped as I thought it would be. I expected to hate the fckin thing, but we actually got along quite well. Don't think I'll be buying one though.

And no, I didn't knock the cones down. A big boy did it and ran away . . .

No, I've decided that bikes are horrible scary dangerous antisocial things and I'll not be having anything more to do with them.







































Not really!

Got a DAS course booked after Christmas and I'll be sitting amongst the spotty oiks doing my theory test next week!

Now I feel old...... when someone says "started with a PW80 as a child" and riding all my life"... and you realise that when he was a child bombing round the fields on his PeeWee (early/mid eighties?)... you were probably trying to date his mom.... Shit... I'm off to take me Sanatogen, drink me cocoa and tuck up in bed with a nice book...
