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

Thursday, 24 November 2011





thursday is the new saturday, my shift pattern since the holiday is all over the shop, so, today is my day off, finish work at 0700hrs, dog walking and domestic duties out of the way and me and dangerous are heading down the a38 to birmingham for the bike show at the national exhibition centre, didn't make it last year due to the snow, i'm suprised how busy it is, i'm pleasantly suprised about the quality of bikes on show, for me the outstanding stand was the yamaha '50 year' display of bikes, from the old air-cooled bikes to the last of the two-stroke 500's to the latest gp bikes, the custom bike scene was well represented with a couple of really nice shovel's and the john reed[esque] little 500 bsa single, what was notable in this economic climate was the amount of people walking around with their free carole nash calender bags and not loaded down with new helmets, leathers, exhausts etc, perhaps we will see everyone chopping and changing their current bikes instead of hocking themselves with a load of debt for this year's model? i hope so........
