  1. Past hour
  2. Today we are done with the shitty highway riding and into the better stuff in the Adirondacks. Hope to get some good riding pics and more interesting stuff to see and do. More later .......
  3. Then Todd orders Brussel sprouts and a sausage for his dinner. Who the fuck does that? Things smelled like burnt ass ....
  4. After Dave's bike took a shit on the highway and stopped dead (dash error said "key low" which we assumed was the battery in the key fob being dead) we stopped for a few on the side of the road. The bike finally restarted and ran well for the last 30m miles to the hotel in Rochester, New York. Bought a new battery for it, so we'll see. We made it to the hotel and had every intention of going out for a nice dinner someplace. Never got past the hotel bar though....
  5. Friends and a not so friendly gull ...
  6. After Zanesville, Ohio, we were on the highways for rest of the day. But we did stop on the shore of Lake Erie to visit the beach for a minute. Cold (55F) but there were still peeps on the sands....
  7. Stopped at a local fuel station and they sold race gas in 5 gallon containers. Dunno what the Amish do with race gas but it looked to be a big seller....
  8. So Saturday we had to cover about 600 miles from Athens, Ohio through Pennsylvania and into New York. We were greeted by wet and cloudy roads in Ohio as we covered the back roads north to Zanesville, Ohio. Lots of Amish buggies on the roads and lots of the associated horse shit as well, which in the rain can be very slick as you well know.
  9. Weather has totally sucked so far. But supposed to be nicer today. Yesterday had nice skies in the afternoon but cold. Should be better now.
  10. Whoo hoo suns out! Freak me look how high my gass is and no 420 anywhere.
  11. Looks like a pretty good Suzuki to me id buy it to park it out front on blocks next to the chevy. .
  12. How the fuck could he let a bike get into that state?
  13. I I think the fact Pedro is way more mature then i am gave him the edge on sussing out a certain posters problem. Just another case of good looks not being worth much, other then being in photo's.
  14. Today
  15. What have the Romans ever done for us? Love this picture.
  16. Personally I've only ever put one person on ignore on any forum. There are other ways to deal with shit that you really don't agree with. I just take a little holiday from the forum , that way I won't say something I may regret later, plus I don't have to read the crap then.
  17. I got no idea what this is, apology accepted?
  18. I forgot, on top of my concreting, birthday drinks and quiz I also helped move a 1977 GS750 (bored out to 850 I think) that hadn't run since 1995 from outside a house that is being sold, into a large van (yes, a van) and then out again to a temporary overnight location. Then in the morning after checking for any obvious old bill hovering about we pushed it through a nettle filled alley with the owner sitting on it in shorts to steer. He didn't half make a fuss about his lower legs dragging through the nettles, I was nearly wetting myself laughing. We then emerged onto the high street, had another look up and down before pushing it the last hundred yards to a friend's garden where it has gone into further storage. The brakes were not seized on, but on the other hand they didn't do any actual braking either which made it interesting getting it back down the ramp from the van. There was a little troll on the front and some sort of moss had grown whilst it was under the cover, looking like a little green wig. One of the pictures shows the concreting, you can see the GS owner with his non nettle proof shorts on. The GS was his first bike after passing his test in 77 so he is a bit sentimental about it and seeing it uncovered again has made him want to get it going again. The other pics are of work I'm doing in Fish Island which is the new location for arty type rich kids to slum it and draw over all the surfaces. A future Shoreditch I reckon.
  19. Oh in that case im a bit sorry.....
  20. I did a pub quiz followed by a birthday drink on Thurdsay night after work. We always come second in this particular quiz because the usual winning team always ace it in the 'music intro' round. Strangely the team leader always seems to play with his computery type watch during that round, we are sure there is a connection there, but not being as clever as them we can't work it out. Then on Friday morning I did a zoom meeting with my boss who told me I have to give more work to my underlings even if they fuck it up. Christmas came early. Friday afternoon me and my mate were waiting to hear if a concrete mixer had turned up at a third mate's house as we would be laying a concrete base for a small shed. Luckily it was late so we went out to Birthday drink number 2 at the same pub, this one was for Ted, 75 this year. Ted is currently umming and arring about changing his bike yet again. These old codgers are never happy with the bike they have I have found!!!!! Saturday morning a little worse for wear the concrete mixer has turned up so it was 4 hours of shovelling, mixing, plopping and tamping down the concrete base. I don't ache as much today as I thought I would, must be because we dug the bloody thing out last week and there are no back muscles left to upset. Halfway though mixing and laying I got a phone call from Ted. Trying to get my concrete covered gloves off and the phone out of my pocket I missed the call, so had to ring him back. Turned out he was outside the back garden on one of his son's motorbikes to show us. I opened the garage door and there he was on a Suzuki 1000 V Strom which he is thinking of buying when his son's PCP ends soon. He had one about 10 years ago and got rid of it because he was having trouble pushing it about as he got older.
