A few days before Christmas, I joined my mates the Trincats ( to go to the "Taboo" show at the Sala Apolo in Barcelona. The show is a homage to '50s burlesque cabaret shows and takes place once a month. The next show will be on January 21st. Click here for a few photos of the show (all photos: © V. Conejos).

Beginner's mistake? HA!!!

Feckity-feckit-feck!!! Somebody hand me that dunce cap please!

After 19 years of riding bikes day in and day out, I'd have thought I wouldn't do it, but I did: I forgot to take the fecking disck lock off before riding away! Result: one Thruxton on the ground, broken bar-end mirror, bent shifter and shifter linkage (by the way if anybody has those parts lying around at home and is feeling in the Christmas spirit, I'll be very grateful... just leave a comment and I'll get back to you). Luckily for me, I didn't damage the brake disc, caliper or caliper mounting points, and I was able to turn a right hand mirror into a left-hand one. And the shifter & linkage still work so that's OK. Ah well, it's Friday so I'm going to crack open a beer and get comfortably numb... Have a good weekend!

The 59 Club, Rockers, and motorcycles in England

Isn't it nice to be able to do sweet effay for once! Noseying around the wonderful and often bizarre world of YouTube, I came across this little video:

Normal service will be resumed shortly...

At last, I have a bit of time to devote to the Thruxtonian! Since I returned from Corsica towards the end of October, I've been stretched from pillar to post job-wise, and I have had absolutely no time whatsoever to update the blog. However, this weekend I will attempt to post some photos of my trip to Corsica. But of course, now that I've said that, all my clients are going to call up at once to send me work! One should also bear in mind that I'm a technological numpty...

Anyway, while I get my act together, here's some light entertainment:
