None, it was 1 in 1 out by the time we got there. I was pretty knackered by that point though. Sweat out all those beers on the way through London I reckon.

I noticed a new noise on the way up Mill Hill Road on the way home. Holly was more wobbly than normal, piss artist that she is. Checked her over when we got in, and disturbingly, the front nuts were completely loose. Lucky we didn't go one way and the wheel another.

Speedway is massive!

You know it makes sense. im gonna sell my frame and forks soon. Got my BMX to strip and sell (As I never get out on it any more). Sad to see it go but could put the money to good use...

Like this for example:



Good price too, just have to order it from the US of A.
Also check them on the leader ebay store here

That's a nice frame. I'm sticking with my trusty Fuji, though. We've been through a lot now, bit emotionally attached to each other. A couple of photo shoots, a handful of crashes, some nice rides in a few different cities...

Would do it another night, but I need to get it stripped before we do powdercoating, or it will stay rusty blue and not be bright pink like it should be.

I think i saw mark pass me on the way to the arts centre.

It's probably for the best this did'nt happen though, the roads are slippery and i just came very close to death.
I took the city end earlham road corner too fast and slid right across the road between 2 black cabs , one behind me and one in front , i salute their stopping skills.
I ended up with a grazed a elbow, a small hole in my trousers and a completely destroyed watch.

Yeah man that sucks. We had quite a funny evening. Hid up in the car park under the forum for an hour. Bombed about under there and taught Dan to skid. We then got kicked out by a security guard. Off to Rose lane to get baccy. Then to the football club for beer followed by some big beasty spliffs with my friends Dom and Dan. We then had a high speed burn around through the city where I then lost Dan so headed home. Funny old night.

Hey folks, did I leave a pump with any of you the other night? When we stopped at the Speedway track?

I've just realised it's not on the bike, and I seem to remember someone using it that night. If nobody has it then I probably put it down and missed it in the dark.
