Alternative Postman Pat

This is very, very rude, so don't watch it if you don't like bad language.

How do you feel about...

being spat at by someone who is slowly turning blue?

This is just soooo cute...

...I felt I had to post it. It's a duckling feeding fish.

You Have to Sympathise

Come on. Wouldn't you do the same?

News of the coming weather front joyfully relayed by the smiling forecaster was sounding ominous for the first full ride of the season. High winds, snow and/or hail on high ground. “I hope we don't go anywhere that's high up and exposed” I thought to myself.
Paul Manning had pulled out from leading the ride and Mike and Fliss had kindly agreed to step in at short notice. When I arrived at about 9:45 at McDonalds Brislington with the fully fueled Sprint, Mike and Fliss were already chatting to an early bird. As I slid off the Shoei and excavated the earplugs (checking for any particularly interesting shapes in the globules of wax), other bikes began to roll up. Many of the hardcore regulars were obviously off 'mothering' somewhere and there were as many new faces as there were old hands. We nodded our way, Churchill-like, through the pre-ride briefing and when the assembled group was asked if anybody had any questions, no hands went up. It appeared that we had a sharp,…

Bad Websites

With alarming frequency, civilians attempt to develop their own websites. The result of this untrained attack on the world of HTML can sometimes have shocking and disturbing effects. Either Mr.Vanman has absolutely no eye for design and hates epileptics or, this is a cunning attempt by a design agency to gain popularity through awfulness.

Crazy Japanese Again

Have you ever wanted a bike that sounds like a milkfloat?

BAM Motorcycle Forum

I was going to hold off publishing this for a while until things had bedded in a bit more, but as certain people have already posted a link out there in the wild and we're now being indexed, I might as well tell you about it. Come closer. Let me whisper in your ear. Bristol Advanced Motorcyclists has a forum. Yes, I know what you're thinking, "who wants to talk about BMWs?". Well some people do, and that's fine. Some people like blow-up dollies as well and if that helps to keep a market sector afloat and Vietnamese children in bread, who are we to criticise. Anyway, there is other stuff on there about track days and other motorcycling stupidity, so feel free to take a look.

Just don't expect to find anything about blow-up dollies.

If you ever find yourself facing some challenges and you're wondering if you can overcome them, then just take a look at this:

Toys for the Boys

I may be forty now, but I have to admit to still being a big kid at heart. If you're the same, then this will definitely appeal to you.

Do You Know Anyone Like This?

Can't resist this one

I Just Know That Woof Would Love to do This

Keep Abreast of Current Events

Shucks. You've guessed where this is going already haven't you. What do you do to earn a living if you have ample assets? Porn? Daytime TV? How about entering the world of recycling?

Fire + Rocket Fuel = Bang

Badger Fans Everywhere - Untie

If, like me, you're a fan of the original badger song, then you will be equally outraged by yet another occurrence of big business stealing the ideas of the little guy. It seems such a shame, especially as in some cases, this may be the only piece of work of international repute that they ever produce.

Homeless Taking Over

When people finally become disilusioned with Labour as a result of their deep-rooted sleaze (mirroring the demise of the tories before Tony took office), then the new, poor-friendly Conservatives can return to the warm, beating bosom of power. At that point, the homeless will take over and this site explains the result.



Is irony smooth (or should I not be using an iron?)

Dangerous Toy

Can you think of anyone that you'd like to give a toy with this label on?

Back from St Lucia

I'm now back from our luxury week in St Lucia, but still looking almost as white as a sheet. I don't like sunbathing, but had a great time swimming, sailing and wind-surfing. Well actually, the wind-surfing was more: get on, go a few feet, fall off, get back on, go a few more feet, fall off again. Repeat as necessary.



Now that I'm back and rested, I thought I'd get back to posting some of my web finds here again. I'm not sure whether this site is some sort of weird satire. You decide.

You Have the Wrong Bike!

We're forever being told that you need a BMW GS to travel round the world. Anything less just won't cut it. Why not put some knobblies on a sports bike?

Would Say That You're Flexible?

Be Careful on the Internet

Caravans

As a motorcyclist, I just love caravans.

Polite conversation over tea

Star Wars as it Should Be

Proof that Ladies Can Ride Bikes...

Are YOU of the female persuasion? Have you often wondered if those large, flouncy skirts you wear will prevent you from riding a bike? Here is proof that you can overcome this and other obstacles.





This is the way to ride in style

“The machine was cutting out a lively pace on the back stretch when the men seated near the training quarters noticed the bicycle was unsteady,” the paper said. “The forward wheel wobbled, and then suddenly, the cycle was deflected from its course and plunged off the track into the sand, throwing the rider and overturning.



“All rushed to the assistance of the inventor, who lay motionless beneath his wheel, but as soon as they touched him they perceived that life was extinct,” the paper added. “Dr. Welcott was summoned and after an examination gave the opinion that Mr. Roper was dead before the machine left the track.”
