    Morning, bloody cold CBA to get up yet. Having lazy lie in after family fireworks with eldest last night, why are older teenagers so bloody annoying at times.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Windy and wet here.

    It's traditional toots entertainment day and it looks like swimming so i'll go saunering.

    The MF's are on latrine patrol.

    Laters.

    Bit of driving practice with Stropteen today in the 59bhp monster. On the plus side, the fuel guage on that thing doesnt seem to move, it'll go 2 months between fill ups at this rate. I'm hoping Mrs. 666 decides she's going to use it as a runabout and wants to sell her old tank.

    Is the fuel gauge broken?

    It seems to do a gazillion miles to the gallon. Just as well, given a fully laden milk float would give it a good run for its money.

    flopped on couch post lunch. bambina being ridiculous in a very amusing way, bambino eating his own bodyweight in Gressini, das Hound snoring.

    May make a move home in a bit, fit wheel and chain to 1x, may even look at ordering some pedals or take unused new ones off the TT bike which still - shock!horror! - hasn't made it on to the turbo trainer.

    just set fire to all his stuff after smashing it with a hammer before throwing it into next door's garden - that will learn him not to phuck with you again.

    Tempted at times but I'd have to do the same with the OH,s as both as bad. Plus he's my drinking buddy occasionally and also taxi service when I go drinking. Should have been a politician I think.

    After saying I didn't want another track car, I'm very tempted to take it on track.

    I get a free day out at the Brooklands track which should be a larf.

    Picked up the kids. Walked the dog, washed the filth off the dog. Descaled the coffee machine. Folded washing. Lubed my chain. Rock and roll innit.

    Patience Young Jedi, I only pick it up on the 1st of March. And then have to run the bloody thing in - max 4,500rpm and no full bore acceleration for the first 1,000 miles...I'm going to need more self restraint than TLW locked in an off license :)

    A stroppy 6ft 3rd degree black belt 19yr old and my OH against me I may as well book my funeral. Second thoughts I'll play the peacemaker and hopefully deflect the flack.

    Just survived half an hour out in the car with Stropteen practising her driving. Slightly tense at times but she seems to be getting the hang of it. She's not too keen on advice though :roll:

    i recall a brit colonial rozzer with a kukri who threatened me in the course of a disagreement, once he recovered he got all pally and asked what i'd hit him with*, which lowered my opinion of him further

    *surprise, and heel of the hand to the jaw, but mostly surprise

    mf can probably explain this and other options, though the oh is tricky

    the time i got cornered by four scum was less helpful, got a hiding, i should've run in the other direction immediately, c'est la vie

    Yeah do it. Remember that video of Vtech formerly of this parish with his turboed up orange Lamborghini or whatever it was doing a power fishtail into the Armco? You had to laugh.
  • oxomanoxoman Posts: 7,241
    Agree with the comments to some degree but sometimes it's best to back down a bit. Stevo had the same problems when teaching eldest, luckily I had only agreed to take him out once his instructor said he was good enough. Hated criticism, luckily he's quick to realise his faults. To be fair most of the time he is good as gold, just occasionally let's himself down.

    I don't think it was his, like pretty much anything that VTech posted pics of.

    I used to enjoy my track days, will be good to have another play around. The other thing at Brooklands is the wet handling circuit where you can learn how to slide it properly. But it wouldn't be in my car - just a similar one, so no worries if anything happens :wink:

    i reckon you should do it in yours in the local Tesco car park. track days are so square.
