Try wearing skimpy shorts out in the garden more often.

Who's leading then? I will get us lost and I like messing around at the back (reminds me of school!)


I know Harleys are involved but we don't need no "Road Captains" ...........we can get lost and seperated easy enough by ourselves :lol:

Lets get this straight; this is where we're going right?
http://www.ace-cafe-thailand.com/Beer-Prices.html

A sharp departure from DG20 at 0930 should tie in with Kev (onanist) and any more west country worzel types for 1000-1015 at B3048/3400 junction.
Hope you get your bearings sorted Col :shock:

If you mean the outer race is stuck in the rim ie. the rest of the bearing is missing and you have nowt to drift at.........weld a piece of flat bar across it and drift on that :idea:

If you get somebody to run a bead of electric weld all the way around the inside of the outer bearing race (ie where the balls run) this will shrink the bearing race and it will then virtually fall out of the wheel ;) ;) tis a very useful trick for removing bearing remains from even a blind hole.
