Diesel, $10.21 per US gallon (£1.34 per ltr)

MIOB, and I thought we had it bad
And as for your location "cold, wet,,," all we've had for the last 48 hrs is continual rain, not stopped at all.

We need more girls on bikes pics to cheer us up.

On the plus side: I spend 4 hours with a girl, a camera and a bike last night.

Not an old bike though, so no photos for this thread :p

Ohh it must be SUCH a hard life
Do you require an apprentice, albeit 51 and a (slight) perv?

And I have to say, your photo's are pretty awesome
