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

 in that twilight zone, the time of night when you can't sleep, are feeling desperatley ill and you are just waiting for the next wave of nausea to wash over you there's only one thing to do, hunt down the bastard who infected your computer with a virus that causes it to meltdown and wipe your i-tunes library, double-six the fucker and as he see's the message appear on his monitor, 'time to die motherfucker!' the disc drive bursts out and cleaves his face in half, sorry, i'm not feeling very well at the moment, the result of a dodgy ruby on saturday night, well, it's either that or looking for bike-porn, and i hit the jackpot with discovery of the dutch bmw racing site, http://www.becksmotoren.nl/, oh my god, we are not worthy indeed, check these out, the 'gulf' bike, the 'host' tanked, manx fly screened 'red-bike' and the almost seeley-esque 'ally' bike, stunning..........
i woke up early sunday morning and i knew i was going to be ill, between 0130 hrs and 0930 hrs i was up every hour, on the hour, talking to god on the great white telephone, long time since i've been this bad, mr's b brings me a cup of tea up to bed, i can't face it, i shower and spend the rest of the day napping on the sofa, the dog's sense i'm not well and cuddle up with me, the boy jack approaches to fuss them and they see him off, they know i'm at a low ebb and are just doing the pack thing and protecting me, i sip a glass of water all day, that's it, my body is shagged, mr's b and the girl jessica walk the dogs and i settle down to watch the moto gp on the box, i'm not really into the gp's since the sad demise of the two-strokes and all this traction control bollock's, my first love is classic racing, followed by real roadracing, the british superbikes are good too, but, i must admit, i was looking forward to the new moto 3 class, four-cylinder 250cc four-strokes as a replacement for the one-two-fives, i wasn't dissapointed, the machines are gorgeous, the racing tight and as for the sound? 'like a squadron of spitfires' as julian ryder said.......
