My tank must be getting bigger

Work fell through yesterday so I went for a ride and stopped on the way out of town to fill up ,managed to put $31.70 into my 750S .No 95oct so put in 98 at $1.76 a litre. Well if I`m spending that much I might as well get my monies worth and I did.
A great ride was had including a stop at the Longley international hotel for a pint or two then a spirited run home through roads that can best be described as damp,mossy in places and greasy. The little 750 lapped the conditions up and begged for more, a finer motorcycle has never been built and I arrived home with a big shiteating grin that took hours to disappear. The world is a wonderful place when you`re on an MV. God I hope work falls through tomorrow.

A couple of pints and then a ride? Really?

We're all here, but we're not all there.

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

So we`re not the only ones getting screwed over on fuel prices, It`s still great entertainment though. And yes a couple of beers does wonders for a bikes handling and wet weather manners too I might add.

Nope. They can do some good screwing over here too. 98 must cost about €1,85 orso.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.
