    Put it in a jar of oil on your window sill and it will grow a new one.

    You should inspect your balls regularly to avoid problems that can’t be cured….

    Hah! we have a guy at our work who come from Buckie and I can barely understand him, goodness knows how a southerner can understand the Buckie folk.

    Richard at gravity-sports is good should you require bits.

    I’ve lived in Elgin for 24 years and still struggle to understand the Buckie folk. They speak proper Doric. Sharki I hope I get to meet you before you move on. Are those girls going to take you out on any club rides?

    Sharki, I would be more than happy to support you in your attempt to escape ze race of ze rat!

    My emails in my profile, I have whole boxes of junk. If you need anything, let me know and I’ll have a good look 😯

    If I find anything that you need, I’ll post it out to you!

    Ridefree! mate, Kael.

    Thanks all. And Kael, YGM

    We’ll attack the offending item during the week and attempt resuscitation.

    I’m yet to experience Doric at a more personal level, but as i fancy a pint, i’m going to head up the road in a bit for a giggle.

    Devs, Roberta and Jo need their racing arses whipped into shape. So i’ll be trying to get them out on the trails for longer than one rotation of the cranks πŸ˜‰

    Out and about trails with them tomorrow.

    Tues and thurs are clubs nights aren’t they?
    I’ll have words with ladies.

    Spot on Sharki. It’ll be fun but hard work out there today. I’ll be out later once I’ve replaced a bottom bracket. I tried singlespeeding yesterday but it was too much like hard work and there is about 3 more inches of resistance out there today.

    I went to a party with family and couldn’t get a taxi home so I frogmarched my children home a 2.20am in a blizzard! Am I a bad dad? πŸ˜€

    Well that went well.

    The first thing i thought when i entered the bar and observed the natives, was that i appeared to on the set of a certain red dwarf episode.

    What i mean is that everyone appeared to be talking backwards.

    Soon a was approached by a doped up drunk. Norman bought me a dram and told me about his time as a 80’s raver and how he progressed to being a drunk and lover of dope and other drugs.

    He staggered and swayed through our conversation as i shared with the reason i was so far north of somerset.

    I drank a few pints here and a few more at another bar, then came back as a cover band was playing. I was a little merry and with some good tracks being played there was a people getting their groove on, down on the dance floor..

    So i joined them and strut my stuff once more in Moray.

    Again as always seemed to be the case when out in bars and clubs. My buff(which i always wear through the winter) was taken and worn by some young attractive girl. Normally i’d recover it during the night, but last night i did not. πŸ™

    Once the amps were turned off it was time to leave. so i pulled up my hood and went out into the blizzard.
    Whilst walking a young lady was to heavy for her boyfriend to carry, so she took advantage of my offer and used me as a prop. (much like jojo the previous w/e)I aided them along the snowy roads as far as i could before having to head back to hairyscarys.

    Just before departing the drunken pair, they were joined group, one of which(a girl) asked me where i was from.

    I told her Somerset. Her answer was. “Thats in england. In that case i don’t want to talk to you!”

    And she walked off.

    I walked off laughing to myself, and sad for her ignorance.

    All in all, just another random night out for me.

    I was woken at about 8am, and we discussed riding.

    That’s as far as it went, so i went back to sleep till gone 1pm.

    Here’s a video i took whilst out. (well not really but that’s how they talk up here ;))
