sturm und drang



well, the rain hit derbyshire today, or rather last night and into the early hours of sunday morning, plans to go to the 'ton-up' day at jack hill's were abandoned early door's, no point in travelling over a hundred miles to sit in the rain in an empty carpark, plan b see's me heading up to the c.m.c 'custom and modified' sunday show instead, set off in steady drizzle, grey skies and low cloud, almost refreshing after the high humidity of the last few days, meet up with nick, checked out the moto guzzi saga,  talk bikes and book's, ben jones traps as does a decidely second-hand looking barse fresh from a vw meet and complete with badly sprained ankle and three day growth, red eyes, stale beer and generally 'fucked' aura, tea was drunk, we laughed at the prices in the shop, but, fair play to c.m.c. they are giving something back to the motorcycling community by staging free show's like this, yeah, i know, it's all about selling unit's but i like to be kissed  while i'm being fucked if you know what i mean? anyway, apart from my triumph, nick's guzzi and ben's hardly-worth-it, there really wasn't anything else worth looking at, [irony warning] except the beautiful norton domi-racer, here we go, i almost feel a bit 'the emperor's new clothes' the norton is stunning but, truth be told, sounds shit, there you go, i've said it, i reckon it would look even better with a bmw boxer twin engine in that chassis, what? yeah, a bmw boxer twin engine, in fact, it's inspired me to dig out the mashings i stole off barse currently residing in 'shed-two' or, mavis's shed and see what i've got lurking in there, if i can't build a better looking bike than this in my shed, well, i'll expose my nether regions on top of  the chip van in ripley marketplace........
