    Most people automatically think of Torville and Dean twatting around on the ice when they hear Bolero, but I remember Bo Derek in the film '10' :roll:

    You have the roller bug and its all my fault. Some tunes for the rollers for you to try. Don't have a heart attack though or Mrs H would kill me if I didn't go out to Portugal and fix that Teutonic heap of yours regularly in your absence.

    Beethoven : Flight of the Bumblebee
    William Tell Overture
    Bohemian Rhapsody
    Piotr Ilitch Tchaïkovski : Tchaikovsky 1812 Overture
    Lil Louis : French Kiss

    So, I am familiar with the first 4 but had clearly forgotten the last one, I was outside working on the teutonic piece of excellence, all windows and doors wide open, (don't know if you're familiar with the concept of a really hot day) music turned full up, neighbours enjoying the peace and tranquility of their garden, first 5 minutes I'm under the car thinking what a great suggestion R has come up with, Mrs H is on the rollers, then we both remembered the rest of the track, why am I not surprised coming from you, the neighbours certainly were surprised and went straight out to buy some rollers taking it to be a personal recommendation from her indoors :shock:

    A I was born in Kenya - I long for hot days. On the odd occassion when its 'warm' (in my vocabulary) here in Scotland, I love watching the locals melt, moan and become incapacitated - fills me with joy the miserable miserables.

    B Pinarello001 - influencing culture from afar, my greatest accolade yet.

    I refuse to go to Portugal - you'd be that dodgy neighbour wanting me to fix things all the time, only turning up when you want something.

    If you think i'm going back to Kenya - forget it. The tinternet is slow and intermittant there, I know you wnat rid of me but thats a bit below the belt.

    Anyhoo (vernacular), have you got a reverse gear on that thing of yours ? Was it part of the checkpoint Charlie/Bratwurst international spy swap payment ?

    Only help with tractor restoration :D

    The isetta was born in Bavaria in 1956 and shipped to the UK where it lived until it retired to Portugal 'cos it was fed up with all that rain.

    normal amount of gears just arranged upside down...

    My trattor has 5 gears. You'd like granny gear. Very very slow and torquey.

    I'm impressed with the shiny Miesserschmidt dive bomber celeste paintwork.

    Talking of which:

    Long way to go for that one, its in Australia.

    I hear north is nice this time of year. Pinarello moving 200 miles north, avoiding any landmass would be ideal.

    That's a dangerous combination for a little guy who's easy to wrestle to the ground.

    nothing little about my 55kgs, may need to lose a bit of weight too :shock:

    easy to wrestle to the ground 'cos I spend most of my time laying down anyway. There's an expression here about why we always have a chair next to the bed, so we can sit and rest a while after the intense exercise of getting out of bed in the morning

    I bet you are from Croydon seanthecon. Thats just the sort of 'the Surrey set' attitude. I bet you wear and sleep in a pink twin set too:

    Don't knock Croydon till you've tried it. The town is very proud of its architectural history

    And some amazing bargains to be found in the town centre. Free stabbings fri-sun.

    So I like the feel of pink velour on my skin, what of it?!
