    There's a little piece of land near Strensall Camp north of York that will be forever me.

    I have no idea what you are talking about, but...

    ....the Stena ferry to Hoek van Holland from Harwich has an internal ramp between vehicle decks that is very knobbly and is about 30 yards long.

    Have fun.

    ColinJ It's a puzzle ...

    I never told my parents what happened when I was 13 years old and late for school after going home for lunch. I bombed down the Barkers Butts Lane hill on my bike in the rain and failed to stop when the traffic lights changed to red. My brakes failed to bite on my wet steel wheel rims and I very nearly got squashed between vehicles crossing both ways in front of me! :evil:
     
  6. My ex used to take a golf ball to sit on when she went any distance on her Triumph Bonneville. She reckoned it was best at about 65mph.:biggrin:

    Yeah, like a Bonneville can make that sort of crazy speed. :wacko:

    Unfortunately, the impact on the testicle-carrying members of humanity is numbness rather than titillation.

    I bought my first spare inner tubes today, have been riding for the last 2 months without any, or a puncture repair kit!
