What does a draft beer cost out there at present? I'm assuming it's a pint or 16 ozs ?

Well, with airfare, a pint is pretty expensive!

When it will be ok, i will be nice!


It's less of a 'garage with home comforts' ...and more like a 'home...with a bike in it!'...... Sounds great.

I have included a couple of photos 33yrs apart but somethings remain the same...I still have a Honda & my mate still has a Yamaha, we still ride together...bit of a break during various stages in life, we both ride road & dirt so I hope this is not off topic.

Cheers Terry

back in the early 1980's

It's a 'small world' indeed..... although that does look a bit larger than the bar I remember. ...but I could be wrong (I often am! Lol!)

The bar we were in was the 'Ceilidh Place' .

Anything from 2:00 - 5:00 a pint depending on what, and where you are drinking.
2:00 a pint is cheap and from somewhere like a Wetherspoons chain Pub.... most pubs would probably be around 3:00 - 3:50 a pint ........and 5:00 a pint in a more expensive hotel.

So in US dollars about $ 5:50 on average .

Red boots are long gone, although the boots I had on last weekend were red & black...does that count.

When you will come in France with your honey and your darling (bike and wife or wife and bike make your choice ) you could take a beer in my "garage"...

I wonder if the winter overhaul will include repairing the accident damage to the forward port-side timber around the paddle box.
Sounthend Pier is a lot tuffer than a bit of timber it seems, standing on the pier imediatly above her as she docked I never even felt a tremor, saw the flying splinters though

Hey Kamchat, just because you know the roads so well in Scotland..
I just want to check with you if Vicki Butler-Henderson is right when she says that the A 93 (Old Military Rd) is one of Great Britain's best roads to ride on. I saw her running towards Braemar, Cairngorms National Park, in the TV program Fifth Gear. I don't know if her statement was because she drove a Jaguar XJ Supersport. Anyway, it looked to be a lovely road :)

She's right - it IS a fantastic road ...there are some pics of us on it on page 26 of this thread (posts no.380 & 381) Blairgowrie - Braemar.

Kind of - but still not as 'distinctive' as the originals ...
