I thought it had been rather quiet today, it has been rather pleasant. I didn't realise there was a O2 problem until reading this. I expect the ruskies have been hacking again. Oh well life goes on.

@rennie it really will be a good Friday this week then :thumb:
2018 BMW R nineT
“It’s shit. And as soon as I get home I’m going to buy one.”
That was a fellow journalist’s first impression of the BMW R nineT recently. It’s a pretty accurate summary; the R nineT is somewhat ill-mannered by modern motorcycle standards but also instantly, inarguably, infatuatingly wonderful.

Hope it’s not like the Elvis Karaoke act they booked for my friends 40 birthday party, he was so bad I nearly spat my wine out but managed to swallow it in between choked laughter.
I said to the guy next to me “What do you think of crap elvis then?” he said “that’s my brother”
I thought he was joking... he wasn’t :P
Bit frosty on the table after that :D
