The People You Meet

Broken down at the side of the road, a chappie comes over with the usual, "are you ok".  As it happened, we had decided what the problem was, so no further help was needed.

Chappies chats away, about the things he's done in the past (all bike related).  He was a mechanic, he can get spares if we needed them, he even used to test bikes for MCN in the past.  "So you knew Kevin Ash?" I asked.  He went very quiet.  "Umm.  The name rings a bell - not sure"  Yeah. Right. 
Twat. :shock:

Sick Busa

Ed's just been chatting to a (genuine) bike mechanic, so tomorrow will find him tinkering in the garage.

He'll get it sorted.

Bike BS

Amazing how often someone feels obliged to accost you when getting back to your bike in town.  "I used to have a bike back in the day.... blah blah... used to be better than Barry Sheene.... yack yack... wouldn't do it now, far too dangerous... drone drone... too many nutters on the road, bound to get killed...

Hosted a meeting at work today with someone who I'd only communicated with via email.

She was bright, intelligent, pertinent, beautiful and unusually offered the organisation something of use....

......spent the whole meeting thinking about what I'd like to get up to with her and process what she was saying and offer my own two penneth.

A productive meeting.

Who said men can't multi-task.

I trust I'm still on subject?

I have

a low tolerance for bullshitters although I'll give people the benefit of the doubt a lot of the time unless I'm certain I know better.


Probably why garages rip me off...
