Thread: The I gave a f*ck, went that way...

  1. #1

    The I gave a f*ck, went that way...

    Well after a year's retirement, Big Bertha was allowed out to play in the mud, sorry sand.
    I promised myself it would be the last time I chucked her about after last year's Kielder K2 Enduro, but the bug got me.

    The weekend was amazing, 800mile trip and a big chunk of off-roading in the middle.
    Quite possibly the most welcoming bunch of people I have met in my life as well.

    Thanks to tony and womble for leading the ride and a big hello to the lads I rode with - I'm terrible with names but Ditchwater sticks in my mind. Also a big up to Aydon (?) for getting his 1200 round on tourances! He also gets an award for some spectacular stylee jumps off his bike as the falls ensued - he has long legs so it looked like fun.

    These tracks you guys have down there? WHERE'S THE MUD? Great fun sand surfing and splashing (wrong word, BOATING through those fabulously deep puddles. Water came over the dash more than once but Bertha kept going... incredible.

    My previously polished stainless pipes have now descended into corrosion heaven, I can honestly say I have never seen anything as acidic as that shit you guys ride in - give me back my boulder clay, rocks and mud please.

    Photos below are fab - what a shitty mess I now have on my drive.
    The tip to use wheel cleaning fluid on the pipes is working a treat.

    or

    The I give a fuck went that way

    or

    Do I give a f*ck, no

    or

    I used to give a f*ck but now I have changed my mind and want to enjoy and break my bike off roading it in long two day messy enduro big bike challenges all around the country and really have a great time as it was a mistake to stop off roading properly my quarter ton bike when most people panic if a fly fixes itself to the fairing whilst i am very happy to cover it in shit that makes my bike exhaust headers look like they have been painted matt black despite me cleaning them as I had retired my bike and didnt really expect to get it covered in pig shit again but then again i did think i was posting these piccies up just for light entertainment and it really didnt need to be taken seriously at all as in the bigger scheme of things it isnt of any importance at all and to be honest I used to give a fuck but now I dont hence if anyone asks me where has my attitude towards keeping my bike clean has gone i will say it HAS GONE THAT WAY.

    PS
    If anyone reading the above thinks I am making a serious point, just remember this is all a bit of fun and not at all serious.

    PPS
    This is for fun

    PPS
    Really, it is. Just for fun

    PPS
    i.e. light hearted, not at all serious

    PPPS
    see above again

    PPPPS
    couldnt be arsed to punctuate
