Shopping Trip

On Saturday I went to the Motorcycle Show at the NEC in Birmingham.

And I spent £45,000.





In actuality, I spent just 8 quid.

On a cheeseburger!


But, jeez, there are some bloody  nice bikes out there.

Not that I  need a new bike: my one goes well; it looks nice and I enjoy riding it.

But ‘need’ is different to ‘want’.

And right now, having had my appetite whetted, I sooooo want a new ride.

That one at the top will do nicely, thank you.

    Nice little rack on the back to clamp the mobile whip to.

    • Masher

      Of course! 🙂

    Oooh. If you had bought a £45,000 bike I’d have been interested to read your post on what Mrs Masher had to say about it when you got home.

    • Masher

      Yeah, like I’d be able to type with broken fingers!

      • Alan

        She probably would have throttled you.

    I just went to the food show and did the very same thing. What a rip!

    • Masher

      Yeah, but… all that free cheese!

    Blimey and indeed O’Reilly. For £45k I’d expect, well, erm, I don’t know what I’d expect. But I’d expect it. Do you know how many brand new 1,000cc Supersports bikes I could buy for that? Two and a half. Give or take. But blimey. £45k…

    • Masher

      Yeah, that wasn’t just the one bike. It was case of “I want that one…. oh, and that one. And I like this one too…”

      • Brennig

        Ah. So it was £45k for a garage full of bikes? In that case I approve
