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

 i think the hardest thing for me is that i trusted a friend and they have let me down, i only want honesty, i'm a honest person myself, all i ask is to be told the truth, my engine was at the tuner's before christmas, 'yes mate, you'll have it back for the new year, no problem', 'yes mate, you'll deffo have your engine back before the test day in march', 'i've got the rabbit by the ear's mate, 'im just trying to pull it out of the hat, you'll be at mallory on sunday mate, no problem' i'm not going to be at mallory tomorrow, that's a fact, well, i will be at mallory, just not racing, i booked a week's annual leave, precious time-off, prepared to spend the week getting the bike ready, and, well, it's all just pie in the sky, i went up to see him yesterday, caught him off guard, 'right mate, let's have a look, where's my bit's, let's have a look where we stand', 'everything's at home, it's the only way i can get it done', i look him in the eye's, he's lying, 'i'll get it done for monday mate, no worries' too late, the racing start's tomorrow, monday's no good, what really bother's me is that someone i trusted has let me down, badly, i can't forgive him for that, i've paid a grand up front and all i have to show for it is two tyres and a front wheel, monday might prove 'interesting'...............







i'd amost forgotten that i had this seven-inch release from the clash in the loveless vinyl vault, i have the 'sandinista' album in my collection already and can only think that i just had to buy it to complete my obssesion with this band, i played it and realised that the anti-war, anti-draft sentiment is as pertinent today as back then, powerful song, 'all the young people down the ages, they gladly marched off to die, proud city fathers used to watch them, ..........tears in their eyes'
