That works for me.

I'd be getting excited, but I'm in Rhodes ATM so too chilled to be doing excited.......

Just got to drop the rear out and get a pair of Ti rear chain adjusters in.
I was so held back last year by those extra grams in the rear.
Then I'll be ready, iron two pairs of grundies, toothbrush, and credit card.


You can never have too many freshly-ironed toothbrushes.

I'm taking the credit card away for a rest, the wife fancies a fifteen grand minibus to replace the perfectly good minibus we already have.

at the moment I have Friday booked off, but work crisis are looking very real, so I am predicting I wont be able to sett off till early afternoon.

based on that , please don't wait for me at Gordano, I will do my usual solo late arrival and end up with the worst selection of room mate!!!!! 8O

So are you guys turning up on your bikes or in Tony’s new van?
There’s still
Plenty of time for Mrs Mon to go on a spending spree

Can't pick the van up for a few days, the Renault dealer is sorting a couple of things.
One emerged on the test ride.
It has a row of three seats in the back that fit into Iso fittings on the floor in one of two positions.

Wife drove, I sat in the front, salesman sat in the back.
Wife accelerated away from a junction, rear seats became unclipped and seats and salesman rotated backwards in a most amusing fashion.

Turns out to be a 9 seater and should have two rows of seats, maybe they're not the correct seats.

But it's registered as a car, so insurance is cheaper.

I'm waiting to get the video promised by the salesman of the seats being clipped in and out of the fixings properly before parting with any more pennies.

Does it have a wheelchair lift for getting bikes in the back :) I would have loved to seen the salesman go flying back :lol: That will teach him :lol: :lol:
