On this one I’m a definite balls to it person. If you’re going to do it (anything) do it big styley- eat the pie and have a good time, add some timber to the frame and sort it out later if you need to, it’s a time for celebration and it’s only a week (month) out of the year.

“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.

If your on meds that stop your metabolism just looking at food adds the inches. If cut back on type of cooking to grill /oven but still pounds add on . I got the mrs to buy me a new pair trousres middle november for Xmas. Put them on Xmas day there's about 4 inch gap between the button and button hole . So iv cut back on the meds and using paracetamols instead just to.see if I can boot this weight off . Other wise when the bike comes out of hibernating none my bike gear will fit . Well my head not got any bigger as my new.lid fits .as I fitted the intercom in it the Other day ..

Somehow I have shovelled down choccies, beer and mince pies and my riding kit still fits just fine. If anything the textile trousers are slightly looser.

:cheers:

Regretfully I can't indulge over new year as I'm on call all night. :cry:
