StuF I buY

Spotted this motorcycle petrol ration book at a market a few months back and forgot to buy it however I was talking to the vendor a while later and he knew he had not sold it but was not able to find it but as luck would have it he tapped me on the shoulder last week and the book had turned up,I didn,t forget it this time and bought a hair cutting kit also so no excuses for looking rough at the TT .Why do I buy this shit I don,t really need ?

The place beyond the pines

Just watched this film, how do Hollywood get the sounds of the bikes so fucking wrong ? one minute a four stroke the next minute a two stroke and even worse sounded like a four cylinder at times I taught I was going mad !!!and I am not being pedantic they are pulling the piss !!!
