    Well, if we’re going with the African animal theme, how about Timon and Pumbaa? Not sure which one’s which though, if so...

    Was a warm late spring night in 1978 a young long raven haired Matty had been out with the girlfriend at a local hostilely, approaching closing time, We left Jumping on the old 1970 Triumph Trident T150 and took the girlfriend home quick goodbye at the gate. Her parting words get a move on mat or youl miss The Old Grey Whistle test. Gone! Howling down that A1 i pilled into the A road Just 500 yards sharp right up the Lane and into the yard Ben the old Border collie running about near the back door in the barn Off Side Stand . Im off in .
    Gets in Younger Brother got TV on and its the Old grey whistle test.
    Whispering bob did an itro to these lads who lived just a bit further west than us but Whats 40 miles between north country lads.
    This was what i saw that night on that old BUSH tv .
    First and IMHO still the best.

    Since we are way off topic. David Gilmour is in my opinion at least, the best player to ever pick up a guitar.

    Ha, I haven't had a little weed for quite a few years. If I did I suspect bike builds may be slower :johntm

    Please be seated. I was thinking I would have to cut some foam to suit and later pay an arm and leg to get a proper seat done, then I found this. Mead speed do loads of TZ stuff and this was nice and cheap! Looks quite perfessional too.
