Yep can't wait, grom is finally all back together in one piece after my interface with a muddy byway near Matlock, next job to see if i can get my topbox on it :D
Ben can sit and drink his g&t quietly in the corner with some euro strangers while the rest of us real men get on with drinking real men's drinks :lol:

I'm playing around with sprockets on the grom to see what works best for me. If I get the topbox fitted I'll probably be slowest as its half the size of the bike :lol:

LOL! Yup, small beer can become big beer when things get fraught! :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
You can't beat a good "fraught" beer. Can't stand the fizzy stuff.

Have a great time and send plenty of pics, if you have the time, that is. :D

They'll have a good time because you're not going. If you went it would be a catalogue of unmitigated disaster. You just leave a trail of carnage behind you :evil: .
