Thanks!!

How I wish I'd find one...
There is a new offer online, looks perfect - but they want 5500 CHF for it... It's a '04, though. Too bad.

An other expression

"...and the marmot put the chocolate in the aluminum paper" (this is a translation of an advertising)

Kam do you have stupid expressions like those?

Meaning that your not as naïv as one might think...

Anyway, I prefer "mon cul c'est du poulet", which indeed translates to "..and my ass is chicken"
The French are just strange sometimes, eh?

Chicken could be replace by turkey

This is what you usually reply, no? If someone says ".. et mon cul c'est du poulet!", you say "non, c'est de la dinde!"

In Germany you usually say "... und ich bin der Kaiser von China!", which translates to "..and I'm the emperor of China!"
I think in the UK you might say "..and I'm the Queen of Sheba!"

Anyway, are we a little off-topic here?

Just coming back from the Central Pub down in Monthey where they claim to have 120 different beers. Well, at least they have a lot. I had some a couple of Belgian beers (nommy!) and then I went for a Scottish one: BrewDog
Kam- d'ya know that? It's really good and they have a lot of different brews.
I took the one that suits me best - BrewDog Punk IPA. On the glass it says "Beer for Punks". Just right then, aye!
The bottle claims "BrewDog's beers are the epitome of pure punk".
I love it!

bubu - you like beers, eh? We gotta go through the Central Pub collection one day!
Or even better - let's go to the Bierhalle in Glasgow.

Happy days indeed!
Good to see that everything and everyone is back where they belong.
Tell her hi and safe ridin' !


...and those scones look NOMMY!
I used to get fresh home-made scones when I was in Carluke. I guess they can't be beaten - but the Strathyre ones do look good. They go excellent with a nice Lady Grey, don't they?

HI there, glad you found us .... and even more glad you like the pics .... thanks for taking the time to post and say so.

Yes I am still using the wee Powershot for these pictures.... not the original AS720is at the start of the thread (that got obliterated in my 'off' last year) but it's replacement the SX130is.

bubu & AllBlackPearl.....
Thanks guys, yes it's great to see Sarah back in the saddle - I have passed on your good wishes and Sarah says 'thanks' ...... Unfortunately she wasn't feeling 100% yesterday so decided to opt out of the full 'all-day' ride up to Glen Coe and Kinlochleven with the rest of us but I am hoping she will be out with us next Sunday.

Scones - they go great with plain old Typhoo too! Can't beat afternoon 'tea n scones'!

They are all fine ..... but for the evening ...... afternoons are still ruled by tea and scones.

Look I found another green Kawi for you up at The Welly yesterday ..... a bit of a modern classic ...

Thank you so much Kam!!!! it's my favorite bike... For me the ultimate ZXR!

Normaly i will do the Manx GP next year with the same bike. I would prefer the ZX7RR but it's the engine is too difficult to keep at the top with the kehin FCR and the rest...

I hope to put a ZX7R and a ZX7RR quickly in my garage
