marvin gaye

wotcha, I tried with instagram I really did, under the drty_nails pseudonym I posted, what? fifty odd pictures but I'm sorry it's just not for me, I got 'likes' ( whatever the fuck they are) wannabe supermodels and fourteen year old girls who really know what an MZ two-stroke race bike is. I thought about just nuking the loveless blog and starting again but why? It's been a big part of my life for the past few years, there's loads of history here, (well for me anyway) Instagram just felt a bit, well, 'false' to me, it seemed that a lot of the users are more interested in 'followers' than actually putting anything real out there, there's too much emphasis on selfies and inane bollocks than people building stuff and posting about their experiences. No posts since april so here's the skinny, sold the Ducati hypermotard, bought a KTM 690 duke hooligan machine, did the Morini owners club trackday, sold the Ducati tt2 replica, (after doing the festival of jurby in the Isle of Man) had a stonking Classic tt festival, been to Arizona for the annual Bailey family holiday and dangerous had a big off at Mallory Park last weekend on the Ducati and smashed his collarbone to atoms at the penultimate English trackday before the winter shutdown. Any comments welcome as usual, send cheques and duffel bags full of used 'twenties, carbon fibre goodies, titanium doo-dads and racy magazines or dvd's to the usual address, my e-mither address is tim.dog@btinternet.com. If you need to contact me, if you are easily offended better fuck off now and find something more suitable, oh yeah, here's some advice, listen to marvin gaye, I recommend trouble man............
