Hotel California, Norm. You ought to know that. Hope our paths cross again soon old pal. Take care.

PS - You really need another tarts handbag in your life.

Hi, All. :yup:

I've already got a Tarts Handbag, Mr 03. Sadly it's one more than I have space for. Significant changes in personal circumstances will do that.

It has been a long time but I'm still not going to f**k you, S1nner. Not whilst there are still dogs on the streets. :ner:

I'd love to say yes to that, Steve, as The Tart's Handbag (are we still allowed to use that phrase?) was everything I thought that I wanted in an X1. The visuals, the race kit, race pegs, US gearing... it ticks all the boxes.

Except, for me, it didn't tick the "just ride the thing" box. My previous X1 went out in wind, rain and snow (they are surprisingly good in the snow!), it toured Ireland and France, it went up farm tracks and covered thousands of motorway miles. It felt bloody good everywhere, part of which was because (as Maz will possibly confirm) was because it got oil, filters, and ridden in a way that almost (ha ha, yeah, right) kept up with Finmows and Claudio.

:shock: Bloody Hell... thought you were dead! :ner: lOl
Good to 'see' you again, Dave.
Happy memories of Sunday blasts on the finest roads in Hants/Surrey/Sussex. You mentioned Claudio, but don't forget Lorna... she took some catching! (actually, we were all quite happy just following her!! :oooops: )
All best,
Rik
