That’s it, finished, finito, endex, Charlie Charlie One! Over 2000 miles of a 2500 mile road trip completed. As I looked at what we’ve done as a group, what we’ve seen and who we’ve met, I’m calculating it would take a few trips over a couple of years to cram it all in! Some days … More End of the line
For anyone old enough to remember where that catchphrase originates, let me tell you I had to pass through this particular city today on my way to the Hoover Dam. (I’ll be able to tell you more about it tomorrow as apparently we are having breakfast there). Now, as engineering projects go, this is a … More Shazzbatt!
I’m getting used to this ‘nearly’ plunging to my death over a cliff on a Harley now. You would think you should NEVER get used to that shit, but hey! When the guy who has the handlebars panics and worries, there’s no point in TWO people worrying is there? Just little old calm me, reassuring … More Viva Las Vegas!
Well, I’m a standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona and such a fine sight to see It’s a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford slowin’ down to take a look at me. The police cordoned off the Main Street and allowed us to block up this junction for about half an hour! Now yes, … More I took it easy!
Day one (proper) of the tour. The bikes were tested yesterday and I have to say, a few old boys seemed a bit pale when they came back (lots said they had ridden bikes before, but I think they weren’t prepared for the size/ weight and speed these beasts can get up to). As an … More I get my kicks
Well, wake up at six o’clock!!! Why? I’m really not one to get excited at all. So why the early wake up? Anyhoo! I’m at the airport now, breezed through check in, sauntered through security (new scanners being installed in Newcastle) and I’m now in a bar ‘The Beer House’ have I g a double … More Maximum effort?
A weekly tirade? A Sunday rant? Or just a look see what’s going on in this world today? (from my point of view). Apart from the multitude of geriatrics carving paths through touristic traffic trying desperately to get their kill rate up, not much has changed from one Sunday to the next up in Tynemouth. … More The man from A.U.N.T.I.E
It’s been a couple of days since I penned my innermost, but to be honest, quite a bit has happened since then (whenever then was). Not only had my mind been occupied, but my body has been beaten up and my brain frazzled. Right now my soul is tired (I been filling in the days … More Digging your scene
Not A bad start to the day. Up before the alarm, washing up done, clothes in the washer, bag packed with leathers meter readings taken important lists completed and then some old cow with her dog on one of those extendable leads thought it was amusing to let the black and white shit producer run … More Back on the chain gang
It’s Sunday! It’s a lovely day (in Ashington) so of course a pot of tea and a cake in my favourite eatery in Tynemouth. Because if its proximity to the North Sea (it’s the mouth of the Tyne, take a guess) the sea fret has conspired with the God of the sun to hide the … More Basking in the glory of love/ sunshine, well, sea frets!
