OK MOS, tell me about your Bultaco and your Trophy. My last husband had a Triumph Bonneville and now has a Ducatti and  another that I can't recall at the moment.   I'll ask him tomorrow

 

I'll try that again!

I have to tell you MOS 1981 is not recent.  Big_Laugh 

I never came across Di Blassi, but having Googled it I can see the attraction if you have it on your boat.  BTW is it a narrow boat that you have?

I'll try that again!

Nooo…you need either an ecofriendly mouse trap or one of the original…load it with..CHOCOLATE…they just love it.  And away you go….either to the confessional for mistreating one of God's creatures or to the ecofriendly society for a pat on the back….Confused  now which way to go…..dilemaSteam Steam

 

And I'm working inside because it is too hot to be out...my potting bench can wait while I cool down with a vodka and tonic and put the power tools away.....

 1981 is recent for me in bike terms ,and a lot of terms, my last narrowboat was built in 1876 ,my favorite lawnmower is from 1924, (two stroke with cranking handle )the camper i have just sold was 1974 ,i like old stuff ,more character and you can tinker with it ,modern stuf is all black boxes and computer diagnostics ,dont get me wrong very reliable for its intended life, but i like to make things last a long while some of the boats we build are so high tec if a battery fails its a day long restart for the air con and computer controled heating and generating systems but thats what people want so!!,had a few japanese bikes but dident enjoy them the same, so i went back to the thumpers ,probably be different if i had to comute on one but i only play on them now so it dosent matter if they dont start first (kick)the narrow boat i have at the present is quite new and a bit fancy for me but the family like it so it will stay till i build myself another ,MOS,

Steady on MOS, look what happened to the old lady...as for the onions if they are fried in butter they're not going to do you much good and fresh bread can give you indigestion.  Please look after yourself...us 'old' Chasewellians must stick together....we're a dying breedBig_Laugh

I remembered his name....Paul Holford and the farm is on the A5....probably not Norton Canes at all but I remember he used to have a Norton....it's all coming back to me now....I was only 16 years old and believe me....that was a long time ago and as for that bridge....lots of water under it.  WhistleWhistle  I look forward to the pickies ConfusedConfused

 

 

Now must just take my shoes off to work out the maths....Angry
