Hey Sumo - you going to the Supernats at the weekend - in Bedford isn't it? Think me and Dick (The Baron) are going on Sunday....

Anyway......to add to the list is me, im East London/Essex way. A rideout's definitely a good idea......specially cos Strumpet Cunt is ready for his MOT on Sat :)

I can't make it to the NATS, but a few of our mates are going, keep your eye out for "El Poncho", flaked out gold n white poncho on air. the guy that owns it is the same guy that flaked my tank... and is getting married so I can't make it to the Hayride, the Bulldog and the nats (cos i have to do everything this weekend!).

Hope to meet you and the baron some other time...

bttt

i know there are more than 5 of us [see i can count and i have been in the garage spraying and drinking for 4 hours] - result but i am feelin kinda woozy - which is why i stopped

anyone else getting the vibe that most of us brits tend to drink too much in the garage - moonshiners - you too seem fairly guilt of this......

no wonder it takes so long to do anything - i have welded and dressed 2 brackets tonight but had a great night drinking, spannering and listening to cherry poppin daddies

anyhows back to topic - MORE BRITS NEEDED...

i recon we can have a jockeyer night [somewhere on the m25 by the looks of things] sometime and get a few pics together of a cooooool night to send our american brothers whats going on this side of the water...

should be fun... im looking forwards to something that doesnt even exist - i think i have drunk enough an should leave nowbefore i start offendiong people....

take care all

Will look out for El Poncho at the weekend.

Hey Sumo

I know how it is - thats why im only going on the Sunday cos i can't spare a lot of time......

A friendly examiner?? Is he fuck - is there such a thing?? so every night this week i've been sticking all the legal shit back on it - all the stuff i gotta rip off as soon as it passes and i get it home. Fucking waste of time....anyhows, looking forward to getting it on the road.

So we should try and organise something then - or maybe meet at the Executioners end of summer riot at the Ace? How many of us is there now - 3??!!

hmmm beer.

Yes it is one of the many reasons i've been slow. Although I may start teardown this eve... if it cools down a bit! too damn hot!

yea would love to be at the hayride, but they won't let us come in on sunday after the wedding so... fuck em...

El Poncho, just look for the gold flake glitter ball with scallops it's fuckin ace!

hayride - Say hello to the loud mufflers for me, they're coming over from Paris, hopefully catch up with them on the way there or back...

Meet - M25 hmmm me thinks the M3 haha What about somewhere in the south middle like Salisbury way or something... more pubs...

Fuck i dunno, I need to go buy more beer so i can get back in the garage... and start taking my biek apart to paint the frame....

Now where did that hammerite go...

P.S Don't try to grind the welds off your frame, with one hand on a can o' beer and the other on an angle grinder... I got the scars to prove it!!!! bastard thing jumped and slit the bottom of my hand right open, my girlfriend turned up a couple minutes later, wasn't amused!
