everyone standing around drinking beer while he got his practice in, 

went for a ride most of Sunday, went for a 40km ride with Andrew Swinton and then did a little ride out to @mark105 place and rode back in with him to test his new motorcycle. 

pretty good day for testing and getting some seat time thats for sure.

@Truenotch practising his tube swap skills. 

Remember kids, never go in dry. Always use lube.

It's actually me holding a puncture patch onto my original tube after running over a nail in @Firetruck's section.

It went like this: 

  • Go see Yowzer
  • Run over nail
  • Say fuck
  • Pull out nail
  • Go home to get tube
  • Replace tube and tyre
  • Fuck new tube by going in dry with the tyre levers 
  • Go home to get other tube and puncture repair kit
  • Replace tube again
  • Fuck second new tube by going in dry
  • Patch new tube poorly
  • Won't hold air
  • Patch original tube 
  • Refit tube and tyre with LUBE 
  • Refit wheel and drive home in the dark with almost no lights 
It was a hard day. lucky Yowzer and @64vauxhall had beer and @Beaver was keen to help with levering and lubing.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
 
 
 
 
For some reason this tag won't go away >>> I can't delete it or type after it. WTF      @Truenotch i made my tag go away :)

Possibly a succulent Chinese meal, and then group ride around the bad streets of Gizzy, led by the scooter Don on Friday night.

Sat night could be Beach racing? Last year we hit the local razza, but doubt it could handle 40 of us showing up?

I was gonna have a meating with camp leader and set a loose plan for afternoon activities.
