Its like land of the giants in here...im only 5'4"
Nilz, Always someone bigger.
I feel small at 6'1" now!
I will keep quiet here lol
Jay don't need to kneel down.
Go on Jay, how small are you then??
Scott, I agree, there will always be someone bigger and badder out there!!
Jay is a midget!
Rest easy nilz, unless you two need a 'small off' ð
Chez,How could I forget about Thunderbird!!! Was partial to some Elephant Beer back in the day as well.
Kids these days, with their nice tasting alcohol, we had to suffer to get drunk.
I really like the 5's I must admit, never really considered the 6's or 8's, but jacking the seats back and being comfy sounds good.
As I said I'll just have to keep looking, but I've got the itch now and REALLY want to scratch it.
Another downside to being on the large side is, when I'm out with the Mrs,
shes got a habbit of bringing over other tall people to see how we match up, and I thought they banned Freak shows.
Its a bad crack when your at festivals and it turns out that I'M the meeting point. Lol.
Sun's finally out here, had some hardcore showers today though.
Don't forget the constant questions from short people asking you to get things down from the top shelf for them.
Went out and removed the tracker yesterday and in the process I broke my softclose/auto boot function.
I guess I'm back down with the peasants in the boot compartment.
Us 8 owners should not have to do such tasks as manually shutting or opening a boot lid.
weekend soon lads.
Scott, you are not wrong mate!!!
I had to recently ask a tall woman to get an easter egg from the back of a shelf for me, how embarrassing!!
Oh and dont worry about the boot, at least you can reach it...lol.
Weekend is nearly here and the weather is looking on the up, they reckon it could hit 20 degrees by the end of the week...woohoo!!
Nilz, Can we put that theory into practice at Inters?
I hope it lasts.
It has to be like this on the 6th.
Morning all. It's CBA Wednesday. I loose the will to work every Wednesday!
I'm buzzing for the cup final this weekend and glad the weather is picking up for some all day boozing.
I'm not even reading that Scott as I CBA (I think I mentioned it was CBA Wednesday)!
You busy Scott??? LOL...
A very interesting read and quite accurate too
What theory would you like to test at Inters?
Not really mate. lol
The one of you reaching the boot lid of the A8 to shut it.
I think I can do that
That was most amusing Scott, funny when you think about it like that.
Like the pic of your 8 as well, even if the boot doesn't shut properly.
Weather seems to be picking up here as well, hasn't rained for at least 20 hrs. Woohoo.
My broadband signal is being an **** recently, will have to put up with Sky customer service to try and fix it,
The sooner we get Fibre optic the better, trust me to live in the boondocks!!
thing is, id happily listen to archaeology all day
Scott, I'd rather live in the boondocks with slow internet than in the city with high speed internet.
Your garden and view makes up for ****e internet.
I also found out what is wrong with my boot.
The softclose motor stripped a tooth so it don't pull it in any more.
Anything that's less mind numbing that listening about 22 blokes running around a field kicking a bag of air would be more entertaining.
Whos going to inters?
Not sure about Inters yet, will decide nearer the time I reckon.
How is everyone doing in here??
Weathers looking good, just been out to School with the little one for some ceremony and the sun was BLAZING down on us
Lets hope it lasts, to be honest I normally get good weather on my birthday and its next week, so heres hoping for the best!!
il video call you from the pool :icon_thumright:
P.s. il put that album on Dropbox or google drive for you and you can get the files from there. comprende?
Enjoy the Pool mate.
Inters sounds like a good crack.
Bit off a trek for me though, I see some off you are camping.
Is there enough too do over the weekend???? I take it, it not just motors.
Will have to check out the photos when you guys get back.
My Mrs didn't want to wait until Sat for me to cut the grass, so she's out there now doing it. Result!!!
Score for Team Lazy.
Inters is good.
Camping, BBQ food, drink and good company.
There's a lot on during the day.
You got the drag strip, show and shine, they had bike stunt show last year and control track or what ever its called.
still not going........
You'll be there.
You love it.
Happy Friday everyone...
Suns out too, so thats a bonus!!!
I got a BMX last night
Be prepared for some 'ouch' threads...coming soon...lol!!
I want to do size related jokes but I'm not sure how well that will go. so this line will have to do and I'll leave the rest to your imagination.
You're not one of them skinny jeans, long hair emo BMXers or the baggy trousers with your boxers showing?
90 of our earth minutes remaining.
LOL....well as it happens Scott, its literally only for scooting around in to keep up with the little one when he is out on his bike, otherwise I would have gone for a MTB, but I just wouldnt get the use out of it and im neither of the above. Ive always just loved BMX's for the fact that they are pretty flexible in use.
Till home time.
Now 30 minutes.
I've love to beable to do some of the jumps and such they do on the BMX and MTB
Woohoo, im off!!!
I love doing all of those things on the bike...I will keep you posted.
Have a great weekend all
BMX Bandits (Official Trailer) - YouTube
Its that day that we all love to hate.
Everyone have a good weekend?
Plastic 4 spoke wheels. Rocking.
Nilz, you putting cards on the spoke?
I went to the pictures, (cinema for you southerners) to see bmx bandits! That's how old i am lol!
Nilz, you need a number plate, pads, lay back seat post and CW handlebars on that thing! ð
I love the old bmx's! A mint 80's bog standard Raleigh burner, what everyone had costs a bomb nowadays!
The new ones are just not the same!
Viva la retro!
I actually recorded BMX Bandits on the Sky box as it was on a couple of months ago and just watched it last week, oh it brought back some memories!!
Its a GT Tour that I got, so not so old skool as I had hoped, I am thinking of changing the wheels on it though, have been looking at the Skyway Tuff 2s in Blue (The bike has a blue frame).
It was nice when I got it though as the little one was so excited that we can go out riding together now and his face when I pulled a wheelie on it ( I was like Superdad for all of 30 seconds)
The Burners were and always will be awesome, but as you say they are like £500+ nowadays!!
How was everyones weekend?
Mine was pretty awesome, its the International Dance Festival of Birmingham here at the mo, so popped into Town and saw plenty of breakdancing, which was cool, then went to TGIs and demolished a full rack of ribs and everything that came with it (even I was surprised), then yesterday was Tennis and Swimming and another mega meal!!
Overall, plenty of sun and smiles for us
Weather is meant to take a turn for the worst over here this week, so lets see how that pans out!!
