There must be simpler ways to escape??? ;)
Look, my paintwork hasn't got "Fish scales" :x they're "Dragon scales" right!!! However, after some thought, I will accept "Black Marlin" or "Swordfish", but definitely not "Haddock" or "Cod".

What's not enjoyable about a kettle???
I've done 100,000 miles on mine and I still wouldn't swap it for any other bike :D

I swapped it for a better handling and more reliable bike, a Specialized Tarmac pro!
Nothing wrong with the kettle, just done with motorbikes. I stay on here as it’s the only
place in the world where there are other grumpy old gits who don’t want to give what’s
left of our country away. :roll:

Hi Opted' I'll agree you may have a point about handling and reliability, but during the 33 years that I've owned my kettle and the dozens of other bikes that have come and gone during that time, not one of them could match my kettle for character and individuality. :D
There's one thing we can definitely agree on though, there are plenty of grumpy old gits on here, aint that right Paul :?: and Alan :?:
