    Im not allowed another one, when i was 22 i ripped both my knee caps off on an rd 350lc, (brakes failed around a bend) to be honest i can still feel the pain when i think about it, but lots of water dribbles down my chin when i see the R1, but its soo bleeding busy on the roads these days and there seem to be a lot more lunatics too...:sadlike: I wont even go on the road on my mountain bike nowadays...

    Thing is with riding a bike is that you have ride them with respect, especially when you first start. You pass your test and you really don't know how to ride, and it takes bloody ages to ride properly... I haven't put myself into too many positions which has made my arse clench. Only had a couple moments, but I'm fairly cautious.

    Last year took the r1 down to dusseldorf germany, then got the train to Italy, then rode across southern France, monaco, then upto Spain, over 1800 miles in 12 days, all with my brother and a mate, was great fun!

    Haha have another chez you hater ;)

    Iv always thought I'd like a bike, but was never aloud one :(
    my bro had a major accident years ago. And mum put a ban on them instantly.
    I remember going to get a Suzuki DT 125 for Xmas with my dad when I was 17, picked it out, took it for a spin around the carpark, dad put the deposit down and I was Megga excited. Only to find out mum put the kibosh on it the day after:( was gutted.
    See loads of bikers over Rivinton when I take the car for a spin after a scrub, Some of em Look amazing going through the bomb hole then comming out with the left knee down. Impressive to watch

    Morning people.
    What happening?

    Another day in work.

    Had a bit of a barny with the misses last night for not big reason.
    Told I need to get the car in to the garage to the AC drained get a belt replaced cause its starting to fray, I also think its rubbing on a pully so need to get that looked at.
    She then went off on one about how much money I spend on the car and how its in the garage every week.
    Last time it was in the garage was about a month ago for a wheel bearing that let go.

    Bloody woman:banghead:

    O well, its a new day. lets see what happens. lol

    That's the thing. My parents used to be petrified of me going to the Nurburgring. After id done about 4 trips they got better but they still worry a little bit now after 10 years of going.

    My mum and dad encouraged me to get a motorbike.
    I asked and they was like, yeah sure. If you crash just make sure you get back on and ride it.

    My first bad crash was really bad, broke the bike, broke my helmet, gloves, trousers, jackets, shoes and blood everywhere. Phoned my dad and explained what happened.
    He asked me two questions,
    Dad: Can you walk?
    Me: Yes.
    Dad: Is the bike rideable?
    Me: Yes buts going to be hard.
    Dad: I'll see you when you get home.

    Bit heartless but all the other crashed I walked away from meant I just got back on to the bike, rode home, fixed the bike, cleaned my self and went back out again.

    So the only pasty you'll be smashing this week came in that cardboard box!! ;)

    Even now i reckon she'd kick off if i came home with one... She's obsessed. I ended up sticking to bmx and mountain bikes lol until I could get on four wheels, would love to get into quad off road racing. Now That looks like a mental sport.

    Moorning yawl. What's the dealio?? Office bound today for me I'm stripping out the old engineering office making way for the new sales staff

    Don't do it!

    The first few washes are the worst as you find more dents, marks, scratches and scuffs then you thought were there. This is the reason why I have only washed my car twice since I got it in October, and both times it was dark..

    Haha, yeah this is what it was like on my last car the bodywork is dirty when I bought it and when i washed it I found out it was more or less f*cked. Luckly for me I didn't pay much nor did I sell as it for written off and got the same price I paid for the car back :jump:.

    This A3 mind you has more or less perfect paintwork so I'm happy to clean this one prob wait till the summer for claying it but I think it deserves a nice clean and wax for now :)
