Sorry PJ spoke to John Hopkins and he only knows what your brother told him. But his cremation was the day after your posting.
Stars shine like eyes - Black Sabbath - Planet Caravan. - Album Paranoid
I have an original LP (my first).
The RAC subbie broke the clutch lever when loading the VN on the trailer and got home at 1 am.
Order parts new ignition switch and lever. (Father in law passed away on 31/10/09).
VN back on the road 24th Nov - the run home blowing a gale. Really hard to keep her straight like riding on a storm. Reach St Clears and "there's a killer on the road", not that they know they are.
Traffic stops and I filter through to a point were I park alongside a 4x4. Road closed for about half an hour as a horse is put down that has bolted and been run down on the dual carriageway just outside Carmarthen. Offered by the 2 women in the 4 x 4 to get in out of the rain. Decline sat with the VN - could have been turned into a sex slave - not.
Eventually get home wet and tired from battling gales.
Use the car through the rest of week as floods everywhere.
Cold and its mid morning. The home run is awful. 2 young girls run across the road in front of me at traffic lights in Haverfordwest, narrowly avoided them. 2 miles on a Focus pulls out in front of me on roundabout.
The remainder of the journey I am left shaking with the cold - must upgrade to winter linings.
take the car on 1/12/09. Arrive home the VN has moved. stick it out - can't see anything too suspicous but he mirror is out of kelter.
Speak to the wife and she tells me a neighbour had knocked it over.
Close inspection and the frame looks twisted as back wheel is not central.
See the neighbour and arrangements will be made for insurance inspection - this is a disaster having just had 2 new tyres, new shocks and new ignition switch and I think the value will be around £1200 as a write off.
So in answer to your comment Blues - It may end up a new bike......
If you can see the tops of the mountain's it's going to rain.
If you can't - it's raining.
