Rough neighbourhood?

Postby Sidcar » Sun Nov 23, 2014 1:22 pm



Did about 80 very wet miles this morning. We stopped at a village pub for a coffee and a warm by the fire. Judging by what I pulled up next to in the pub car park it must be a rough neighbourhood!

I'd hate to have to pay to fill that bad boy's fuel tank up... I wonder how many MPG's he gets??? .3 or .5?

Good thing about driving around in a tank is, NO ONE has the nerve to cut you off in traffic.
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.

Just to give you an idea, a Centurion tank, using a RollsRoyce V12 petrol/gasoline engine, on a good day, would give you 4 Imp gallons per mile. They were a real chore to fill with jerry cans.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

Funny how a goldwing, which is usually looked at as a huge bike, seems to look so small sitting beside that monster...I'm glad that I'm not the only person that finds humor in just the simplest things in life. If we just look around us, we could laugh all day....and believe me, some days I do. Life is so much fun, and then you see things like this that make it that much better... Thanks for the laughs...Keep em coming!!! :)

There is a place close to where my daughter lives in Husbands Bosworth where you can drive them.

Do they have to carry insurance? And if so, wouldn't it be really expensive? :?

I think it is an Abbot self propelled gun. It shares some similarities with a GL1500/1800 in that it has a Rolls Royce flat six engine, though a touch bigger at 6.5 litres.

Definitely an Abbot self propelled gun. (I checked with my son, the resident heavy armor expert)
