  1. I was on my way home from work tonight, riding from Wigan to Bolton when I passed a guy hunched over what looked like a pre war bike at the side of the road. I turned round and pulled up to ask if he needed a hand. Indeed he did, the clutch had failed on what turned out to be a 1933 Coventry Eagle Silent Superb and he was going to need a hand to lift it into his van. I spent a very happy 20 minutes chatting with Brian, the owner whilst we waited for his brother in law to arrive with the van. Describing the Coventry as his 'new' bike Brian told me his usual ride was built in 1903 ! In the 20 minutes I spent there a rider on an MZ also stopped to offer assistance and to have a chat. If there's a better way to pass time on a sunny Sunday evening I've yet to find it.

  3. Managed to get out yesterday afternoon after the rain stopped, went to Newlands corner my local bike haunt, got talking to an old guy (my age) who had just got back on 2 wheels after a few years off, he has just bought one of those new old 500cc Royal Enfields, I don't know how he managed to talk as he had a face splitting grin the whole time, it made my day to see how happy this guy was,

  5. Definitely a girly drink!! Try a Vodka Martini, shaken not stirred... No, really. It's like downing meths, but smoother and more expensive. Had a number of 'hard blokes' call me on it, so I challenged them to drink one of mine for every pint of theirs I put down. Most took one sniff of the drink, made a horrified face and left with far more respect than with which they approached!! Or, if you want to go proper Bond, try the Vesper - 6 measures vodka, 1 measure Gordon's gin, half measure of dry vermouth, shaken over ice and served with a large slice of lemeon peel. But saying that, real men drink mead anyway... preferably from large horns, while leaning their axes up against their longboats and grabbing the nearest shieldmaiden!!
