YAY it's Fridayy!!

Post  BuRP on Fri Jun 29, 2018 9:28 am

This forum is awfully quiet, and this is not because our bikes are too few, they're just too reliable BRP smile
So, let me start a Friday rant/joke/remark thread, to be added to by you all, posters or lurkers - post whenever you feel like it, even if it's not quite Friday yet!

As soon as the cage opens here I will be off, I'll drive myself to Natal.
That's some 600 kilometers or 5 hours, doable and not a chore because at the other end a party with loadsa friends is waiting. My van is too low to take the bike so no riding this weekend, bitofa pity but fine enough.
We'll barbecue tonight, and no doubt the wine will flow liberally - but tomorrow morning there'llbe no hangover as it's a kilometer lower altitude wise Bump

Have a good weekend you all, and post your plans here! Bump

Then come here with pig Mauser, it was 2 degrees C this morning..... but, it will climb to 17C at around 4 this afternoon!
I lit the fireplace yesterday again, got plenty of wood to make it comfortable at night - winter here, a good one for a change, plenty of snow even in our South! Santa

Be afraid, be VERY afraid.... as it is Friday the 13th today!
Do not go out of the house, hide under your bed and do not drink any beverage which requires boiled water!
If you see a cat and there's a ladder also somewhere shoot the cat just to be safe, and put a rabbit's paw in your pocket.... you might make midnight this way!

I had lotsa coffees already, will go ride & wheelie in town, have picked up a cat from the SPCA and swung the bugger under a ladder which I pinched from the neighbour, scaling his devil's forked fence.
Why?
Well, I can't get under my bed you see, it's a solid contraption.... so then all the other stuff won't matter either!


Oh, yeah, or rather No, I'm not superstitious, better tell someone who cares about this all razz

Hell it's Friday today!
Oh wait, Hello it's Friday today!
Get rid of your workplace ASAP, then race home (shame if you bicycle or bus or train), then light a fire (sorry if you live in a flat or do not have a garden/patio), wait until the embers glow and then chuck some meat on it, barbeque it! nice
Do not forget to pour yourself a drinksssssssss whilst the fire is progressing, as this helps to mask the charcoaly taste if you forget the meat and it burns - which, if you start drinking is very likely to happen BRP smile

Enjoy the weekend chaps, I most certainly will! Bump

It's Friday again..... and it seems this forum has died a silent death Crying or Very sad
Anybody out there ?????
Hope so, and that the answer will be "Yay, zero problems here, I'm riding my piggie to my heart's content!"

Let my try my best with a joke then.
Bush, Obama and Trump did die and are now standing for God.
God tells them he will ask what they think to determine where they will go.
God asks Bush first, "What do you think?"
Bush says he believes in America, the freedom of the people and in democracy.
God replies "Good, come stand on my right side", then asks Obama what he thinks.
Obama tells him he believes in world peace, equal rights for any religion and that no more wars may be fought.
"Excellent" says God, "Come stand to my left side"
Then he asks Trump what he believes.
Trump answers "I believe you're sitting in my chair!"

You ride through winter?
My hat off, also did that many years ago, on my S2 triple Kwacker.
Upon arrival "Aren't you getting cold?"
Me "No way, that's for sissies! But, help me get off my bike please? I can't bend any limbs" Bump
Mind, I'd do it again, were good times nice

Happy Friday,
mainly riding my Husabang at the moment, well until the inevitable.
The XR will be back out again then.
The electric start is great (when it works) The Husabang also suffers carb icing, what a pain in the arse that is.

I'm riding my husky 701 at the mo, awesome bike it is - the power is addictive!
Next year I'll finally have time to start reassembling my piggie the way I want it, and then I can do the trips with it I want to do.... which I'll not do on the 701, too remote and the Swede isn't reliable enough Bump

Thanks Mauser,

I've just renewed through the Post Office for £79.

Bennetts wanted £197 for exactly the same cover! I always shop around every year so they must have been the cheapest last year, (although the PO don't show up on the comparison sites). Don't know why the massive price hike!

Savings can go towards next years trip. rider rider

That's a good price...funny thing is that the DT part of the policy is £19.99, the XR was about £40 the rest admin fees. End of the day your not going to write off the XR unless someone drives over it, it won't catch fire and I don't leave mine unattended so she won't get nicked.....I think all insurance companies are the same you might as well get the cheapest listen up
