I do not have a facination for tinfoil shiny cokecan bikes and I cannot show up in front of a significant gathering of Retrobikers on an Alloy GT, it would be wrong. :roll:

Saying that though, when only riding with you lot, I've got no problem with modern kit equipped GT's, they do look built for modern trail centres ie overbuilt and suspension sorted. :)

Well just come then AC :twisted: , It will be a great run out with the NE boys on sat. and we can sneek you into the forrest under cover of darkness, Kaiser has a 5 hun err I mean man, tent that he says anyone can sleep in- velo is convinced that he will only make it round once so no ME excuses allowed or accepted if he can make it.

I will even let you play some of your new fangled progressive music tapes in the car- go on, you know you want to, you could be dead next year so there may not be another chance :shock: :lol:

:lol: :lol: :roll: Thanks for the sentiment Gazz and Kaiser but alas it just isn't a goer. As well as the M.E. I've got exams and work to finish off for a number of classes and the sad thing is that I'm just too anal to not try and get it all done! :lol:

By this time next year though I'll be blase about the whole college thing and will be living like a proper student; smokin' tabs, drinkin' at lunch time, spending student loans on bikes and hifi's you know the kind of thing.

I am expecting a well documented report with pictures though so I can see what I missed.

you really don't get the whole concept of student life do you :?: , ahh tell you, the students of today.

When I was a student, learning guff was for girls and folk interested in passing so called "exams" and in the end where does that get you, read the handbook and say out load

"FECK IT I'LL GO!"

..........and one day you'll be a retrobike SSUK09 man, my son.
