Saturday, 12 December 2009


been xmas shopping today, me and dangerous started the day at maccee-dee's for a coffee, then down to see rob at racing lines, aprilia 125 mudguard for a tenner, cagiva mito rear caliper, [with footpeg hanger, master cylinder and trick little reservoir] twenty quid and a pair of clip-ons, [not a matching pair, the nickel plating is a different colour, big deal], for another tenner, then up to neil's at cornerspeed ducati for a root through his brake caliper bin and turn up a beauty, result, be rude not to pop around the corner and see kev at le-rock, tell him about the problem with the front disc and he gives us a 320mm semi floating disc for nowt, 'measure it up and see if you can do anything with it, if not give me a ring monday, the ebc rep is in and i can have a word with him to see if i can get you sorted', my faith in human nature is restored, thank you.

front caliper is a four piston, four pad brembo off a treble nine ducati, rear is a little twin piston, twin pad brembo off a cagiva mito, that should stop it then, why do people buy harley davidsons?...........

beautiful harley davidson/aeromacchi 250cc racer from 1964, why don't harley dip into their rich racing heritage more often rather than following the tired old, [delete as necessary], 1- bald eagle flying over a desert, 2-easy rider, 3-bad-ass biker, 4- bro!, 5 etc,etc, etc, bore -off, i've got one and there not as good as you want to think they are, imagine saying to a r1 or fireblade owner, 'right mate, you've bought the bike , now you need to spend lot's of money to make it run properly and even more to make it stop properly and even more to look like a complete knob-head in your factory approved made in taiwan genuine harley clothing range, they do a complete package at your local dealer, black t-shirt, [with dealer logo on back], black jeans, [pressed in creases included], snakeskin boots, a fucking stupid helmet that looks like a pimple on a pig's arse, h.o.g patch with top and bottom rockers that you can sew on your cut-off so 'normal' people will think that you are an outlaw club member, [even though you are actually a commodities broker in real life], the sneer comes as standard as soon as you ride off on your new bike, [mate, only pensioners and little kid's are impressed] and the cherry on the top, a stick-on goatee beard.
