Rainy day in Lancashire

Postby Keith Legge » 01 Nov 2013, 14:02

Lovely morning walked the dog in sunshine got the bike out and it started raining :roll: anyway were a hardy bunch us bikers aren't we? Aren't we? ;)
Anyway set off with Pink Floyd rattling around in my helmet hoping for the best, you never know it might be a shower.

Its not a shower.

I am heading up which is probably the wrong direction with Dark side of the moon playing i am on the dark side of Rochdale think i am in cloud now.
After being out an hour time to have a rethink pull over for a fag and the obligatory cup of Bovril.

There is a wind farm on the right honest.

Nothing to see here

I've had enough and its an hour just to get back home Comfortably Numb is playing now and thats how i'm feeling. :lol:

I know what you mean by fag, but what is 'Bovril'? :)

:thinking: Err Bovril well its err its err 8-) Wiki :lol: Bovril is the trademarked name of a thick, salty meat extract that can be diluted into a warm drink.
Doesn't sound very appetizing but its a nice warm drink on a cold day. :D

John, it is one of those British aberrations. Like covering toast with Marmite. Absolutely unedible. But hey, the idiots buy it and eat it.

I could add driving on the wrong side of the road. And pubs that must close at 23:00 because the valued clientele can't handle liquor. Or diluting perfect tea with large amounts of half-milk. Hating Pakistani immigrants but going every day to buy a curry there. I will refrain from mentioning haggis, blood pudding and half-baked bacon for breakfast. I could go on but you get the drift.

Other than the peculiar folklore, some of them are quite agreeable folks. Really. :roflol:

Should have just said coffee Keith. Look what you've done. :direction:

Hate to admit it, but Canadians also have Bovril here, although I have never tried it . . . . and certainly won't now! :vomit:

Nice little pic series of your ride day Keith.
