Harmonious Balance

There has been 2 weeks since my last blog post and not much has happened on the Harley front as the roads have been less than kind to us Harley riders that feel the experience is better when there is no damp....anywhere! well I am not really that fussy but Dan is - Dan is Andrew's brother-in-law and a fellow Harley Head and the thought of anything touching his bike other than his hands brings him out in a cold sweat. To date we still have not had our inaugural ride out as the 3 strong Edenbridge chapter....

Now for a bit of 'other stuff' - picked Ellen's car up from my mate Simon's spray shop on Wednesday and I am pleased to report that the harmonious balance in mine and Ellen's relationship has been restored, in all honesty Ellen was surprisingly good about the whole bike meets car thing. Simon made a stunning job of correcting my handy work and the finished job was amazing, I know I didn't take any pictures of the damage and for a now converted blogger that is the cardinal sin but anyway you will have to take my word for this that what I did made your toes curl and what Simon did made little birdies sing! Cheers Simon!!

There is another major thing happening at our house, we are deep in the throws of having the front garden and drive turned into a luxury parking area for fellow Harley riders, bit like a welcome break without the hospitality and the shelter! No seriously it should make a huge difference to our lives as having the whole area block paved means that there is much better parking area and we will not be walking in loads of crap into the house every time you make the journey from car to front door. A local contractor called Steve Mercer has taken the challenge and I have posted a few pics of the progress so far.

Things are moving well and they should be back on or around the 5th Jan next year.

I have thankfully finished my Christmas season DJing at Brands Hatch and I can honestly say that the work was great but if I ever see another Christmas dinner and have to listern to 'Mistletoe and Wine' or any of the other foot tapping Christmas music I will be a happy man - well until next year when I would love to do it all again!

Did do one small thing to the Harley and that was to remove the bright yellow indicator covers and replace them with very cool smoked clear ones, I know both Andy & Dan have this done and the difference is massive!!

I have also come to an expensive realisation that Roland Sands products are going to make a regular appearance on my Harley and help to get to the look I want - bring on Brands Christmas Parties 2009!!!!

Happy Christmas to anyone that reads this and congratulations to Nancy & Niamh on their amazing showing at Olympia yesterday - I don't know where they came just that they did get to the final!! Weldone

Looks like those roads are drying out nicely, just in time for a holiday rideout, I dunno' about you but I can't wait!!

Me too Dan, went out for a quick spin today and it was OK on the main roads but the back roads where still a bit dirty - still be great to get out over the Christmas break though!

Time for blog update! Pictures of the new driveway. Andy could wheel his Harley in and you could pretend you were going out for a ride - through the floods!

Thanks for your nice comment and about me and Naughty Niamh. Seems ages ago now!
