  5. Well my erection went well, I spent an hour getting it up then an hour playing with it. At the end it only took twenty minutes to bag it again, oooeeerrr missus. Initially it looked a bit pissed. I spent quite a bit of time just squaring it up, i have a footprint for it which i didnt use this time but that will be a good guide to work from next week at the rally. The quality is superb, even the pegs are next level. The inner is asymmetric so looks a bit odd at first but gives a great sleeping area, there are lots of vents and storage pockets scattered around which will make stowing all the crap easy. Most important though, I can stand up in the centre and I am 6'4" so that's going to make life a lot easier. There are a couple of external fly screen windows which is a nice touch and these can be fitted with guy lines to create waterproof vents. I didn't fit all the guy lines but it definitely needs them and I will use them when I'm actually camping. This tent will put the love back into motorcycle camping for me. I am going to need a peg mallet as the pegs are very thick. Im very happy with the purchase of this tent.

  6. Don’t panic, it’s not one of those ‘guess-what-I-might-buy’ threads but a simple heads up that now the Suzuki DR600S is almost sorted and ready to take over dirt duties the Himalayan needs to be outed for something more road orientated. Off to Alicante in the morning to see a tidy Kawasaki z750 with not many klms and as pretty as a pretty thing. Plenty fast enough for an old man.

  10. Day started with a coffee outside my front door, enjoying the morning cool breeze After a couple of work calls, I got on the bike and rode to a DIY superstore, to pick up some gardening things and auto watering timers, on the way there exiting my town I say the police and paramedics assisting a car crash. Someone drove an old opel corsa over a sidewalk and construction and rolled it onto a canal. Paramedics were trying to bring him back but everyone had a pretty sad body language, I suspect they weren't optimistic. Fitted two of the timers, one of them was faulty so went to exchange it after lunch, by then it was properly hot, at maybe 32 or 33º. Spent about half an hour exchanging the thing, and all the time this little girl on a driving school motorcycle was doing figure eights on the parking lot, at a little over walking speed. The blue car to her right was the instructor. 32º on a wide open concrete surface like that feels like hell! She was doing fine and making pretty tight turns, I figured that it was a test of will, if after a few lessons like this she still wants to ride a motorcycle then she deserves it Coming back, the Corsa was still on the canal Made a few bug and reptile shelters with pine bark by a peach tree. Trying to bring as much life into the "garden" as possible. An example of such life is the bird bath, kept full by the watering Over the next couple of months it'll be really hot here, and considering my neighbors will go away on holiday on July, I decided to assemble a small watering system for the recently planted bougainvilleas , this has to cross by path to the garage, so I built a little step for the bike to ride over out of some old MDF samples. Had some delicious wine, salad and fried egg with toast for dinner, overall a busy day in the countryside, while dealing with Belgians and Spaniards for work.

  12. Over the weekend I went to a local Jubilee event in the recreation ground. My mate's daughter wanted to do the scouts' climbing wall and looked for a volunteer to do it with her and no one would do it with her so I gave in and said I would. I started but then realised that the waterproof boots I wear on my bike are a lot bigger then the knobbly bits you have to climb on so I was mostly using my weak old person arms to haul myself up. I made it to the top and then wasn't keen to throw myself off and let the line lower me down. I reasoned that it was set up for kids and I would come down like a bullet. I was offered a second go but I was knackered by then and worried the harness had bent my phone in my pocket, the strap went across it, it definitely put a crease in my wallet!

  13. Planted a couple of bougainvilleas today, waiting for the ones around the metal structure to make a nice thick shade for eating outside in a couple of years, and for the front one to make the house even prettier when it climbs the pillar Got tired doing that and broke into a sweat, fucking covid! Now sitting on the sofa feeling tired.

  17. I think they did away with it about 10 years ago. She was hiding again tonight......apparently the school told her there's no point in coming to the parents meeting cos you won't understand anything. And she'd never ask me for my help in translating of course! Then she phoned her father and said she wants to come back to Poland......and he told her no you're fucking not! It's a hard life as a modern crazy fat cunt!

  29. Got robbed this morning I'm ok, just a little shaken up, but I'll be ok. | was robbed this morning at the petrol station. | gathered myself together, my hands were still shaking, I was dizzy and I honestly think I was in shock. My money was gone. I called the police, they were fantastic and called for medical assistance as my blood pressure was through the roof. The police asked me if I knew who did it, and I told them "Yes, it was pump number 4 !!!!!!!

  30. Had an errand to run in the morning and today is a holiday in Portugal so very little to do in the morning, left early taking advantage of the morning coolness. Went to Santarem, which is one of the hottest cities in Portugal, lovely garden for a short walk before coming back home, testing how it felt to be around as I felt a little weak a few days ago. Great views over the Tejo and one of Portugal's biggest farm region. The Tejo is looking really sad. Storks used to be a migratory bird, when summer arrived they'd settle back to their nests left empty from the previous year. They're starting to stick around year round now. Summer, big heat arriving and the nests have 3 or 4 occupancy instead of 1 or 2, baby storks are so cute. I stopped at two places to see if you can get how many they are Stopped by the Dainese place, and the Hayabusa club was meeting there for a ride, such cool bikes! I'd love one, but honestly don't know what to do with such a fast bike except lose my license. Last 10 or so km before home were going to be on a nice and fast dirt road, but progress creeped up, my lovely dusty dirt road turned into lovely black tarmac. Used to look like this: Now it looks like this: Surely the people who use that to go home much prefer it like this, specially over winter, but today it spoiled my fun

  31. One more week and I'm retiring, I'm 70 in a few months time so me and the wife have decided we are retiring. I've worked since I was about 10 (Brought up on a farm) so it's about time I had a rest. Any ideas to keep me occupied ?

  33. Fixing to get hot around here: Went out for a little ride in the morning, while it was still very pleasant. Took a couple of pictures that are not really worthy of a ride report, and now back home for a cool salad before doing nothing in the afternoon. It's a holiday in Portugal today.

  41. More rufty tufty 80s bike camping (priest on the left this time), this time it's the arse end of my CX. I was the only person with a camera back then so I'm not usually in the pictures. Man in blue hat is the colourful character (Wombat) who introduced me to motorbikes, a life changing moment really if I think about it.
