another perfectly good motorcycle ruined.......

Tuesday, 25 May 2010


monday night at m.f.n., [miles from nowhere], or the shipley boat inn as it used to be known before malc, [one of the original showaddywaddy band members], took it on and turned it from a run down boozer to a decent venue for everything bike, car cruise and scooter based for enthusiasts from both sides of the derby/notts border, monday night is officially known as 'show and shine' night, you turn up and the best bike of the night gets the winner a free pint, burger and enrty into the 'last chance' bike show at the end of the year, dangerous, barse and me had a ride up this week, grabbed a coke and talked bollocks for a couple of hours, this weeks stand out bikes for me were a beautiful mv agusta 'america', complete with a giacomo agostini autograph on the tank, the other was a neat little beeza chop, very tidy, nice blue metalflake paint job, a very neat frenched centre bantam tank and a set of lovely stainless pipes, had a chat with the owner and he has had a lot of hassle getting it running right, if it could go wrong it has, but he's stuck with it and nearly got it sorted, a good night out and everytime i see that 'skeggy' poster it makes me laugh, if you have ever been you will know why.
