Wow some mint looking storms there! The joint sound must have been fantastic. Gutted to have missed out today - hopefully there will be another event soon enough that I can tag along at. Looks like you all had a wicked time!

Looking forward to some of that Mac magic next weekend. CCTs just have to last one more week of commuting and a ride to Grain!

It was never Jamies bike...It was a yellow one I bought when I had my wrist in plaster...Monsieur Drooper, I swapped the yellow bodywork with Steve97 for Black fairings, Jamie swapped the black stuff for his silver kit...

Jonh has in fact bought a new frame with a VTR reg number & put Droopers motah in it & put the resprayed silver with glitter effect kit on it...

Hope that clears it up... I remind him when ever I can it was yella origonaly...

Thanks to all who turned up...

Frank made a few bob so he's happy...

Thank you for your donations to the chopper fund...ooh arrrh Mrs... 8O I will let you know how much was raised as soon as I know...(took a while last year...)

Thanks to Jonesey for helping out with brakes & things on Lukes Blackbird...

Thanks to Tony without whom I'd have more spares...still he did leave me with the discarded bits... :thumbup: Only joking Tony glad to help, you would have been a bit stuck without Franks hoard...

Shame about the weather but it wasnt to bad TBH...could have been worse...

I have bacon still to eat & what am I going to do with the multiple open packs of biscuits... :Beer Popcorn:

Discarded bits?
That's scrap man's gold, that is....... And I wanted to weigh my old clamp and compare it to the one you sold me to check for a weight difference, but couldn't find your dealer scales in Frank's lair.
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.
