I used to live in Suffolk; another backwater of the UK.

hey  *fight*

A7 back together and ready to ride with NONE of the new shiny stainless steel bits purchased.

She will be running around the back water on our good Friday run and I will start smiling again

My best routes on my old bangers are up into the wilds of Suffick and Norfick via backroads from my mid-Essex base. Cracking up there.

The native Norfuckers and Suffuckers are a bit strange though

I married a Norfolk lass. She's all right, it's just all the other ones I sometimes wonder about.

I can take the banter aimed at us Norfolkers, but to lump us in with those scoundrels downs the road in Suffolk is not acceptable.

Norfolk is Gods Own Country, Suffolk is the devils ar*ehole (excluding Adnams brewery).
'59 A7 - No idea what I'm doing with it.

Looks like heavy rain during the coming week,  which will rinse the salt off the roads. Temperature's should be warming, so with a bit of luck I'll be out and about on my Beeza soon. Yay!  *smile*

Just a little pootle to ensure the A7 still works ready for the first club run of the year next Friday. Like a sewing machine and I have a big grin on my face  *smile*

...Like a sewing machine...
Like a sewing machine, eh? Was it doing 'chain' stitch?
Oh 'Brother', were you so happy on that machine that you became a 'Singer'?
I bet you were just 'bobbin' along!
Glad you didn't get the 'needle'!
This is a very long 'thread', eh?
If you stored your bike gear on top of a cupboard you could describe it as 'Overlocker'.
Were you able to keep up with the 'Jones's'?
I might be 'Bias'ed but I just love BSA's
Glad the brakes were not 'Binding'
I'll be 'Darned' if I can stop this nonsense!

Ok, enough from me; over to you guys!

Thanks GB, with my dyslexia  I was busy looking it up to make sure I used the right word (yes I had to lookup how to spell dyslexia).

Look like I was lucky today as I have just read the local gritting teams are out tonight so more salt on the roads  *angry*
