sacrilege .............

I was at a rally at the weekend just gone - couldn't move for cars...... people climbing out of their four wheels all leathers and cowboy hats, waist coats with wallets dangling on chains, badge city.....

Met Minky in Southport and sat on his CCM - mucho presence. Surprising. Hadn't anticipated it feeling so 'big' for a 450 - liked it!

Mmmmmmm......... no, this is not a CCM thread............. just sayin' ...........
