    Just had to crack open a bottle of Kraken which was also a Christmas present as I've just heard that I am going to be a grandad again.

    Sorry that was in poor taste, my youngest always gives me a different rum every year and this year it was Dead mans finger, not tried it before but that will be cracked open tonight.

    FFS Blackie after reading this I woke up in a panic this morning after dreaming that I'd been riding bikes for the last 50 years on a moped licence, just had to check and sure enough group D any motor bicycle ( with or without a sidecar). Maybe I should cut down on my rum intake 😊

    No Blacky, I mean it wasn't a proper bike as such but it had gears and stuff and got me my full licence.

    Nice one slice, being a widower I always get what I want these days, I mean if I can't treat myself to what I want what's the point. It's usually some woodworking tools/machine trouble is the workshop is getting a bit crowded these days and I haven't got the space for a bigger one. Life can be such a bitch. Merry Chrimbo everyone and make sure you have some fun.

    Funny my little Honda 125 broke down just before the test so I borrowed my uncles little Honda 50, soon as I passed went round to mates and bought his 650 BSA

    I'm glad I took my test way back in 1968, a ride around the block and if you didn't fall off and didn't knock the examiner over when he jumped out in front of you all was good. When I told my youngest about my test he couldn't believe it and said basically you didn't have a fucking test then but back then we thought we were hard done by as I worked with a couple of old guys who never even took a test to get there full licence. Of course things had to change because it was plain stupid but the current system is overkill and I feel for you youngsters that have to jump through all the hoops just to ride a bike.

    Sept Northern Ireland Trip (FJ shake-down ride)

    Brilliant great write up. TBH I don't think you can do better than have a road trip with loved ones and great job on the FJ by the way.

    1st time caught speeding

    Done a bit of research and 96mph in a 70 zone is considered to be way over and wont be offered a speed awareness course and it will involve a court appearance , being a pensioner my income is next to FA so shouldn't get stung too hard and from what I've read they can take up to 6 months to prosecute me, so I'll just have to wait I guess. The possibility of a ban no matter how short would be a real pain in the arse, luckily I wasn't going over the ton (which of course I've never done) because that would defiantly mean using public transport to get about.

    1st time caught speeding

    A couple of months ago after over 50 years of riding/driving I got pulled over for speeding for the 1st time, I admit it was a fair cop and I'm lucky I haven't been caught before. Can anyone tell me what the procedure is ? i.e. does it involve a court appearance or can I plead guilty by post and how long is this likely to drag out before I know my fate.

    welcome . took my test in 1968 on a Honda 50 that I borrowed because my bike had broken down, next day I bought my mates BSA 650, the air turned blue when I told my son about this

    That would be funny but I actually know some sad people that are like that.

    Changing a simple Bulb !!

    Fuck that for a game of soldiers, in my prime I had to climb 250 ft up a radar tower to change a cable and that was high enough for me, these days I put off climbing my ladder to clear out the gutters. If we were meant to go that high we would have born with wings
