You know how much I like to hurt myself, well at 5.30am I misjudged the gap between two cars at work and snagged my thigh on a bumper of a Discovery.

OK I had my keys in my pocket which didn't help but even though it made me wince I didn't think much more of it until two days later until this appeared.

Strokes chin.

Well that's the end of any endurance rides for you .
1000 miles on a Royal Enfield, now that would be an endurance ride!

And here I am, Skoking in at #47...damn, you guys don't waste time!

Again, a cool shout to Ash and the gang for the grand fun Le Wife and me had with them while across the pond last month. (The pints were good...I think they helped us win the pub quiz that night.)

As for not being able to view YT vids: if you're using a phone, try using Firefox; it's the only browser that works on my Galaxy S7.

I've dangled the carrot so lets see what develops.

Failing that I have a Plan B.

The world is a bit more comfortable now that there's a new donk thread. It's been a while since I've added a new thread to my favorites list.

I assume Bill's on about the new larger 650 Enfields - but then knowing Bill maybe not.
They do look good though.

Aaaaah, they're adorable! Great names and cute little faces.

I am back from a long weekend in Berlin, which I mostly spent eating everything. Some of the eating was done in the lovely company of SnookerInBerlin, too!

Not for me as i don't really need one.

I just wanted to work for a manufacturer whose product actually works......unlike a Range Rover.

Days
I'm what they call the Retailer Host.

Initially I meet and greet all of our customers and escort them to the Service, Sales or Parts department as many of our visitors still become a little phased by the experience.

It sounds simple but every dealership in the UK never has enough space and if you don't have anyone to "work" the site it soon seizes up so I spend much of my day making sure that the site is breathing.

If our customers can't park their experience starts with a disappointment and as reviews count for everything these days we try and ensure they always can.

Try to imagine a bowl of custard that's over flowing and the cars are the custard and the bowl is the site.

Well I'm there to eat the custard.
