We got some good news about a couple of things that'll help us financially. So I led with the line 'would this be a good time to tell you..' Apparently it wasn't.

Slighty off topic but I keep looking at airheads to bolt my sidecar up to.

There's this in Wellington


Which would make this, same sidecar as I have, Not the blue thing in the preview pic, start the video to see it.


Though I'd possibly strip it all down over time to make a cafe racer/street tracker type of thing with the sidecar.

Eddie I don't mean to offend but that setup is really pipe & slippers. In my hipster opinion the best sidecar setups either look vintage, fully outback Australia camping, MX, or bobberised back to basicness.

Good to see the airhead virus is still circulating around your veins

I hope the good news about a couple of things that'll help us financially wasn't when mandy says shes going to work Saturdays & Sundays as well as the week, cos I could imagine your confession wouldn't have gone down well then

It would probably end up something like this



or this is the best I've seen, same model sidecar as I have.




and back on topic, has Mandy allowed you back into the bedroom yet Stephen or are you still sleeping outside?

Are you interested in side-cars because you are interested in side-cars or because of your wonky balance issues?

If you want that airhead checked out I could call Mandy and ask if she will left Steve out for an hour or two (I may have to promise to come along and make sure he doesn’t buy if for himself - he seems to have a few self-control issues when it comes to airheads....)

I am currently on a self imposed motorcycle expenditure hiatus. Didn't come from Mrs Woodman but came from reviewing my paypal account history (don't ever do this) and the decision to keep the KLR (its just too good)instead of selling it to finance the GS.

My story and am sticking to it..........

Seems like an appropriate place to bring this up.....

I can get this >>




for less than the cost of the jacket I was looking at
167K k's, no reg or wof and apparently it's not charging the battery. Worth a punt ?
