Don't worry Steve, I'll bring my own tea bags next time Laughing
My thanks are due to you for getting stuck in, even in the deep chill of a January day, my help is more token than actual, with 'all' my ailments. I may be a grumpy (sometimes) old man, but the cold did nothing for my arthritic knee and seized back Embarassed . The Chinese to round the day off was superb so I will be round again as soon as I can dodge the camp guards at the 'nearby rest home' Very Happy .

I have thought about going "underground"....But as Dirty Harry once said..."A good man knows his limitations"......with maturity progressing I like to think that I can impose limits and stick to them....extra garage space just means more bikes...

On that basis, I think I have 'exceeded my limitations Laughing

Your knowledge of your limitations is only exceeded by your optimism to achieve all that you set out to do...nothing wrong with that....if you achieved everything then youd be sat around idle with nothing to do...

Well .....it will be 2 weeks today and I will be landing in Italy.

Not sure how this Brexit nonsense will affect the potential purchase and the bringing it back in to the UK.

At the moment the visit, it is just a sight and update reccy....but what...after that?

Is this the time for foreign purchases? Who knows and really who cares if you are chasing the 'new thing' .......ask Boris!

Anyway........in 2 weeks time..I will post a picture

regards
Gavin

TVRRICH..........next Wednesday and in and back in a day, thanks to SqueezyJet

The taxi is costing more than the flight!

May have some news on viability on Wednesday evening but we will see.

As soon as I know ...so will you guys.

Blame it on Brexit......everything seems to be dragging on!

Photos will follow ......even if it just of a cafe in Italy, but hopefully it will be of an order form

Shocked in my defence, I did ask my copilot if it was a good idea to call at that time of the day and she said ‘he most likely will be up for a pee soon anyway’ Laughing
