  2. Hi folks, I might be a bit early to say this BUT.............Happy Christmas! Well I hope you lot have been good this year otherwise - well you know the score. All the best to one and all. I would personally like to thank Drewpy for the help he gave me this year with the XJ600.

    Puter stuff.

    Slightly off topic but to all you gamers out there DO NOT buy the new Mafia 3 game for PC - It does not run!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The developers are well aware of it due to the vast ammounts of complaints - me included.
  4. Why not ride a goat instead
  5. Hi Folks. With the kind permission from Drewpy I have L/R side pannier brackets to fit XJ600 pre diversion (no box's) that I am giving away for free. All I ask is that you pay for postage. Need a bit of clean up/re-spray. If interested PM me for details.
  6. A bit of a late reply lol. Not a brown trouser moment but a WTF moment!.......................There we were, my GF and me, driving along on my Garelli Rekord when all of a sudden a mini decided to turn right across our path with no indication. The result, both of us flying over the top of the mini - all in slow motion. Those that have expereinced this will know what I'm talking about. Worth google'ing it too. Some interesting stuff about this. The Brown Trouser moment happened when I was behind a lorry on a wet day waiting to overtake. I ducked out only to see an oncoming car so pulled back behind the lorry waiting for the car to pass but to my horror the lorry slammed on it's brakes..........................so did I only to find I'd lost the front end and was sliding rapidly beneath the lorry's rear end. I found myself between the lorry's back axle thinking 'If this lorry is too big to pass the oncoming car then it's going to reverse'. Of course it didn't otherwise I wouldn't be typing this now! Now this could be a surreal moment - or monty python - but when the lorry drove off I was sitting in the middle of the road still in a bit of a daze when some OAP asked if I was OK being a passer by at the time.
  7. Spike (on his headstone) 'I told you I was ill'
  8. You can't get better than Spike Milligan - unfortunatley I should have put 'Old Spkikes' sayings in first - maybe some one will I hope. There's a bit of logic somewhere with Groucho as well as Spike and all - Noel Coward and the rest.......................... To quote Groucho............'If a black cat walks across your path........this indicates that the cat is going somewhere' 'I remember my first sexual contact..........I've still got the reciept'

    Henry Cole

    Clarkson couldn't give a shit being 'one of the elite'. Up his own arse!!!!! As for Henry Cole, at least he comes across as being 'Normal'. Although I'd like to have his money to buy a bike of my dreams - not for profit I add. just to ride. I might settle on a USU Quickly USU?

    Wot they should do is only allow HGV's to use it from 8pm until 4 am.........................then it'll make way for MORE cars to clog it up!

    Cheers Drewpy!

    I'd just like to say in public what a great bloke Drewpy is!!!!! I'd joined yamahaclub over three months or so and what great help he has given me, even to the extent of sending me a part to get my XJ600 running. Now that's what I call a decent bloke relying on trust from me considering I'm a 'noobie'.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cheers Drewpy
  16. I used to be a dispatch rider in and around london. One rush hour day in heavy traffic, I was on the outside of the traffic waiting to overtake the stationary cars. I could see behind me this impatient bugger on his honda 50 cc. Eventually he overtook me giving me stare. T'was half a mile up the road where I passed him lying on the floor after hitting on-coming traffic. He was ok but I couldn't help thinking what a twat he was.

    Your Accident

    I must be the unluckiest bloke in the world coz I get these ppl phoning me up (mainly from India) about MY accident...............................................I LOVE IT!!!! I can't resist winding them up I once kept one bloke on the phone for over half an hour due to the 'slight' language barrier He was 'as we all know' trying to convince me I'd had an accident. I asked him (amongst other nonsense questions) how much my claim was worth. He told me two grand. "Is that all". I asked. So he upped it to four grand, I mean it does pay to bargain, doesn't it! Eventually I addmitted to him that I had, had an accident. "But what ising the accident"? He asked, thinking he was onto a winner. In breif I told him that I'd shit meself. I really didn't think he'd carry on - but he did - by this time I was in tears for laughing so much. Again, I think it was a langauge problem, which was confirmed when he said "You Shitted. Where was it ?" By this time I was pratically doubled up with laughter. When I managed to reply I told him the reason why I shit myself was because I'd seen a ghost - The bastard hung up!!!!
