If some idiot did that near my bridge I'd beat his azz.

After throwing beer cans and sinkers at him first of course.

It doesn't even sound like it's 'peaked out' on the RPM's either! kinell!..that really is mooooooovin.

Reckon at that speed with piston motors (which by nature are gonna be huge power, on the edge, fragile fellas), i'd be shittin meself every second waiting for a big bang followed by a 'right turn Clyde' very brave.

Actually is quite incredible. Thought the blower whine was turbines at first, then heard the exhaust as they sped up!

House sale - now awaiting an audit survey. Seems the banks do this every so often. Lucky us, they pick on our buyer.

Golf was placed on a 'freecyle' website yesterday. Have three people after it. Should be gone tomorrow.

Monkey bike on ebay this weekend.

Mossberg placed on guntrader.co.uk yesterday. Have someone coming to look at it tomorrow.
