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

Monday, 12 July 2010


sunday morning and i'm up before 5am, quick shower, out in the garden while the kettle boils and stick a bagel in the toaster, both the dogs are up with me, it's overcast but warm and i realise that the days are starting to get shorter already, pick dangerous up at 5.45 and we are on our way, we don't talk much, the time for talking is over, we arrive at mallory park spot on 7am, no queue's at the gate, show the van pass and our wrist-bands and we are driving onto the famous cicuit at shaws hairpin, into the paddock and we park up, it's rammed with bikes and vans, they shoehorn us into a space the size of the van and enough room to wheel the bike out of the back, that's it, no room for our argos barbecue gazebo then, we roll the bike out, put it on the paddock stand and survey the scene around us, serious machines everywhere, i wander down to the toilet block to fill the kettle for a brew, i just know that i'm going to be spending a lot of time in here...................
