You flogging it Kev?
I've a few Yorkshire Groats spare from the Invaders sale and I could reclassify meself as a partial 4 banger so it'd fit in with the triples. Apparently it's all the rage nowadays. :roll:
I won't have the 'op' though.High pitched talking's not me, I'm not retraining at my age......

I do have 'previous' with the GSX14.

Fartywarty (see his ebay moniker) seems to be getting away with it, although 2 cylinders is as much as he can handle at his age I suppose. :?
I dunno Alan. the vision of you on it wearing a flat cap and a whippet tied to the pillion is a mind boggling thought

Not as old as you though eh Yorkie? or as tight fisted ;)
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".

If you'd got a proper one, they wouldn't catch you.
It's given me a good reason to get out on the pushbike though (legally allowed) and get fit, and lose some weight, almost 2 stone up to now.
(thanks for the inspiration Richard ;) you git )
That's what friends are for.
Did a two hour ride in the sunshine this morning, through Grimsby and Cleethorpes to Humberstone fitties, (look it up, really interesting) and got home knackered, but feeling great :P
Trump said that didn't he? Probably rode his 'bike' more than 500 yards though.
Looks like someone's bored and has lots of time to waste :roll: and us too having to read his twaddle :tw
