last thursday i finished work and don't go back in for 18 days!
shift work is cool
then i got paid + overtime
= spend money!!
= solve the credit crunch
mate phones up and says fancy a few beers in the big city, london. also had a call from condor saying my new bike was ready!
so head to london on friday afternoon and meet up with mate and his sis and start hitting the loopy juice!
proceed with a curry followed by more loopy juice
quality evening had by all!
wake up next day, no serious headaches etc
leave for condor, jubilee line was down and was pointed in the direction of a bus . . . . strange large contraption . . . you get in them and they take you places . . . although it takes ages . . . . and they smell funny. anyway, eventually get to condor, see my bike . . . . mmmm, made the right choice on the colour and logo's, get a few bits sorted and adjusted and get releived of some funds
get on bike and ride the streets of london
i really enjoy riding around london! i know i shouldn't, let's face it, it's frickin dangerous! but it's like a computer game where you have to dodge the numpty! be it driver, walker, biker, bus driver!
get totally lost! but don't care, i'm having fun!! end up outside phil and liz's place, stop to get a pic! ride on, catch up with some guys at a set of traffic lights! one of them is riding an elevated chainstay alpinestars with full dx! have a chat with him, tell him the bike is cool and he should get pics on here! his mate was upset that i didn't compliment his bike! it was a modern full suss trek! didn't occur to me to do it!
off i go and eventually end up back at kilburn just as it is getting a little dark, chuffed with bike and chuffed with the ride!
hit munchies, me and jonny then hit the pub(jonny is my mate, i'm not telling the story in the 3rd person!
) wander in to a pub and gradually bosh through several pints with jonny while reminissing about ex girlfriends, and deciding that we could fix the economy faster and better than that tosspot brown and his darling!
wake up this morning and again, no hangover!
jump on the bike for the ride back to waterloo, get lost again!
having fun riding, eventually turn up at waterloo and get on the train with 4 minutes to spare!
also get a phone call during the weekend saying my suzuki dr390 is built and running and ready for the MOT!
2 bikes in one weekend!!!
here's the pics, phil and liz's house, the new weapon, and then pictured with the fleet!!
might need a couple of posts though!
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
