lack of decent riding weather and dont want to make my arthritis any worse riding in this damp cold weather, still thats what you get for living in lancashire the only county they could spin cotton without it snapping thats why there were so many cotton mills in lancs, and it doesnt get that much better in what we laughingly call summer either :yawn:

You two should be leading from the front! Poor example to set!

But I suppose at least you're here which is more than can be said for your female colleague!

What do you make of this shambles @Six30?

I think we're now at the point in the week where you spermguzzling nonentities make your excuses for not riding, and not producing any Ride Reports over the course of the weekend!

So come on then.........let's hear your pitiful excuses!
Might get out if the floods have gone and I can get out to the Fosse way.
Not going the other way as I might end up in Coventry. :roll:

Because the garage is deceptively large it's not overly wide though is wide enough to get a car in but it's almost 15ft to the roof and nearly double length, there is another 1/3 of wall length out of shot :thumb:

Took the kids (5 and 3) to the allotment to spend some time there and have a breakfast picnic. They managed a couple of hours and we got quite a bit of the sorting done. Really happy that they are now both able to come without being permanently shepherded.

Not sure about the rest of the weekend. My wife is off in that there London with her mates. Probably just Lego, walks and cooking and cleaning.

By the way Rich let me know when you are planning to pick up the tyre as March weekends are looking busy already and I am away on hols the week after Easter for a fortnight.

Cheers
