Sitting here in the UK

So here I am in the UK, down south (near Brighton sort of). Visiting the wife's family for Christmas.

Was walking around a village yesterday with my MV hat on and a guy in a van yelled out the window "EMMM VEEEEE!!!!" at me. That would never happen in Tucson!

Going to try to meet up with Senna 026 at some point here and have a few beers.

Weather is pretty nice. Especially today. It's slightly colder than it has been, but sheesh, I'm looking out the window and I can't see a cloud! Is this really the UK? Wow, nice! Lotsa bikes running around. I'm going to try to get to a few bike shops to see the new 1098 if there are actually any there, and also some MVs.

Hey John, yeah, I would be working too if not for this trip. I haven't taken any time off at Christmas since I was in school, so this is kinda new for me. Hope you at least get to have a little fun though.

Hope it's nice up there too! Never been to Yorkshire, but I want to go at some point. Don't think it's going to happen on this trip.

Will do Greg. I'm hoping to meet people over here, doesn't matter who they are. I'm kinda limited in that I have a wife which is more keen on shopping than sitting at a pub and meeting with people, but we'll see how it goes. She let me meet macmivvi last time and that was really nice.

If anyone else is in this area (south, Sussex), might be nice to try to meet up!

the question is:

how much "DAMAGE" will she do IF you let her go shopping alone?

Take care there Andy, Ralph uses the beers to wash down the Gin.

Enjoy your trip, I also feel the exchange rate pain , shopping?

Sun's out up here and I just installed a new carbon swingarm on my bike, ah the good life!

Heh, I'll be using the beers to wash down the single malts! Saw a nice Caol Ila 18 in Waitrose yesterday but didn't get it yet. I've been waiting to get some of that stuff for years now. Only have the 12 at the moment.

Carbon swingarm? Pics? For the MV? Never seen one!

You would be very welcome Andy, as would all forum members who don't live here already of course.
