50 years ago!
« on: September 20, 2023, 09:51:03 PM »
“After being married for 50 years, I took a careful look at my wife one day and said, ‘Fifty years ago we had a cheap house, a junk car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10-inch black and white TV, but I got to sleep with a hot 23-year-old girl every night.

Now, I have a £500,000 home, a £45,000 car, a nice big bed and a large screen TV, but I'm sleeping with a 69-year-old woman. It seems to me that you're not holding up your side of things.’

My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a hot 23-year-old girl and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap house, driving a junk car, sleeping on a sofa bed and watching a 10-inch black and white TV.

Aren't older women great? They really know how to solve an old guy's problems.”

 ;D ;D ;D Nah! Definitely glass half full and if you care to note, the maths in the tale is manure!  ;)

And so that you don't feel left out, I have attached two images for you and #1 son to salivate over. Again, Scottish Classic Motorcycle Club meeting, Sunday past.

It had a lovely "Rip" of the exhausts as well!  ;)  ;D

Good health, Bill

i love that Morini Bill, though not the 'sport' it is a super example, and it has that fabulous TLS front brake. #1 Sons has the single sided disc, which was a standard fit for that year, but he's always hankered after the hub brake. it was made at a point when Morini were raiding the parts bin so there were many configurations coming out of the factory. sons morini has caliper mountings on both forks, though to the best of our knowledge twin discs were only fitted to 500cc models with cast wheels. it seems that what you see is what you get with Morinis.
whilst in the lake district and to avoid the rain we ventured north of the border to Dumfries, what a lovely area, a great history of resisting the march north of the sassenach hordes! ... mind you, having sampled the local beer i'm wondering why we bothered  ;D

just did some sums on our trip, our lovely skoda fabia (1.6 diesel) did 990 miles and averaged 70.37 miles / gallon  ... who needs an electric car ??
