    I’ve had so many motorcycles I can’t remember them all, my first was a NSU Quickly, you will have to look that up! My last was a Honda 600 Deauville. But the most memorable was a Kawasaki KH750H2, as the name suggests it was a 750 cc triple, the odd thing about it was the fact at that engine size it was a two stroke. No finesse apart from electric start, an awful lot of HP going through a chain drive. I was out on a ride with some friends in the dim and distant past when the chain jumped the rear sprocket and threw the chain, a friend of mine said that it’s just like a push bike, you put the chain back on the bottom half and then peddle like buggery and the chain will reseat. I told him to demonstrate, so he duly puts the chain on the rear socket until it is tight and with the bike on it’s centre stand leans forward so the back wheel is off the ground, fires the engine, selects first gear, pushes the throttle into the red line and drops the clutch. I swear that the whole bike, with him sat on it, went straight up vertically by at least two feet, the chain snapped and impacted the back of his head, luckily he was still wearing his crash helmet which was instantly transformed into a birds nest of fibre strands and padding. There lies the margin of error between theory and practice.

    PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE WORDING AND SPELLING. IF YOU KNOW THE BIBLE EVEN A LITTLE, YOU'LL FIND THIS HILARIOUS! IT COMES FROM A CATHOLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEST. KIDS WERE ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS. THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS ABOUT THE BIBLE WERE WRITTEN BY CHILDREN. THEY HAVE NOT BEEN RETOUCHED OR CORRECTED. INCORRECT SPELLING HAS BEEN LEFT IN. 1. IN THE FIRST BOOK OF THE BIBLE, GUINESSIS. GOD GOT TIRED OF CREATING THE WORLD SO HE TOOK THE SABBATH OFF. 2. ADAM AND EVE WERE CREATED FROM AN APPLE TREE. NOAH'S WIFE WAS JOAN OF ARK. NOAH BUILT AND ARK AND THE ANIMALS CAME ON IN PEARS. 3. LOTS WIFE WAS A PILLAR OF SALT DURING THE DAY, BUT A BALL OF FIRE DURING THE NIGHT. 4. THE JEWS WERE A PROUD PEOPLE AND THROUGHOUT HISTORY THEY HAD TROUBLE WITH UNSYMPATHETIC GENITALS. 5. SAMPSON WAS A STRONGMAN WHO LET HIMSELF BE LED ASTRAY BY A JEZEBEL LIKE DELILAH. 6. SAMSON SLAYED THE PHILISTINES WITH THE AXE OF THE APOSTLES. 7. MOSES LED THE JEWS TO THE RED SEA WHERE THEY MADE UNLEAVENED BREAD WHICH IS BREAD WITHOUT ANY INGREDIENTS . 8, THE EGYPTIANS WERE ALL DROWNED IN THE DESSERT. AFTERWARDS, MOSES WENT UP TO MOUNT CYANIDE TO GET THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. 9. THE FIRST COMMANDMENTS WAS WHEN EVE TOLD ADAM TO EAT THE APPLE. 10. THE SEVENTH COMMANDMENT IS THOU SHALT NOT ADMIT ADULTERY. 11. MOSES DIED BEFORE HE EVER REACHED CANADA . THEN JOSHUA LED THE HEBREWS IN THE BATTLE OF GERITOL. 12. THE GREATEST MIRICLE IN THE BIBLE IS WHEN JOSHUA TOLD HIS SON TO STAND STILL AND HE OBEYED HIM. 13. DAVID WAS A HEBREW KING WHO WAS SKILLED AT PLAYING THE LIAR. HE FOUGHT THE FINKELSTEINS, A RACE OF PEOPLE WHO LIVED IN BIBLICAL TIMES. 14. SOLOMON, ONE OF DAVIDS SONS, HAD 300 WIVES AND 700 PORCUPINES. 15. WHEN MARY HEARD SHE WAS THE MOTHER OF JESUS, SHE SANG THE MAGNA CARTA. 16. WHEN THE THREE WISE GUYS FROM THE EAST SIDE ARRIVED THEY FOUND JESUS IN THE MANAGER. 17. JESUS WAS BORN BECAUSE MARY HAD AN IMMACULATE CONTRAPTION. 18. ST. JOHN THE BLACKSMITH DUMPED WATER ON HIS HEAD. 19. JESUS ENUNCIATED THE GOLDEN RULE, WHICH SAYS TO DO UNTO OTHERS BEFORE THEY DO ONE TO YOU. HE ALSO EXPLAINED A MAN DOTH NOT LIVE BY SWEAT ALONE. 20. IT WAS A MIRICLE WHEN JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD AND MANAGED TO GET THE TOMBSTONE OFF THE ENTRANCE. 21. THE PEOPLE WHO FOLLOWED THE LORD WERE CALLED THE 12 DECIBELS. 22. THE EPISTELS WERE THE WIVES OF THE APOSTLES. 23. ONE OF THE OPPOSSUMS WAS ST. MATTHEW WHO WAS ALSO A TAXIMAN. 24. ST. PAUL CAVORTED TO CHRISTIANITY, HE PREACHED HOLY ACRIMONY WHICH IS ANOTHER NAME FOR MARRAIGE. 25. CHRISTIANS HAVE ONLY ONE SPOUSE. THIS IS CALLED MONOTONY.

    I always preffered scooters ,they were cheap ! (Unlike now) used a zundapp and sidecar for years ,want to go fishing ? Chuck it in the sidecar ,want to go fishing in a dingy tie it upside down on a sidecar . i could carry much more on a scooter than a motorbike ,one trip two bails of straw on the rear rack a sack of spuds on the left by my feet a 20k? (The big blue one) of calor gas on the other side and a bag of shopping in a huge bag on the seat behind me. Had a few bikes inc a motor morini a rare guzzi and the smaller japanese ones but that extra speed got me into trouble!

    Chesters, daiwa sensor is brown, comes in bulk spools and they can be bought and deliverd from ebay sellers for less than a tenner. That's pretty much all i've used for years now. Funny though, it looks brown on the spool, but when you shine a torch on it or the sun shines on it on my reel it looks green ?

    Ant, I like quoting in/famous people, In doing so you should always add the author or person to whom the quote can be attributed. Could you please go back and add “Bill Clinton” to the end.

    Vagabond (Dave) and Norma his wife were like explorers, they often went to foreign climbs catching everything from sharks to piranhas! I remember on one trip out to south america they were out in the middle of the jungle in unknown territory and one of their canoes capsized!.....luckily they were ok :). Propper characters who I for one very much miss on here :(.

    Another short trotting sesh on a river latter this avvey. I walked across the fields to the river and as soon as I got to a swim it started hissing down. It was then I realised i'd left the packable waterproof wading jacket in the car, i'd also left my hand towel. Since I was only wearing a tee shirt and didn't fancy getting soaked and maybe chilled I decided to jog back to the car and get them. Back at the swim I caught fish on pretty much every trott, nothing big but I caught a net full in every port of call as I roaved the river bank. As soon as the rain stoped it was immediately followed by strong winds which were so powerful they put an ark in my rod as I held it across the river trotting the float.

    Hello Bear, I am Gloucestershire Worcester borders so lots to go at....only thing is like everywhere else Barbel are slow in showing up this summer...so far. But patience is key Autumn is my sort of time. For me meat is a a great bait, in any conditions, especially when they are a bit picky, due to a lot of naturals the gorge on, a large piece of meat can often tempt them into thinking...bugger forget the diet, just once won't hurt. But the impact on those Winter floods are unknown, hopefully it might just be that they are spawning again, or something more sinister, hope not. Been eyeing the float rods, probably will give me a new lease of life. I like the flavoured meat, but tbh find meat straight out of the tin, original flavour to be excellent, but for me it has to be fresh, with all the smell. Good luck, and keep at it, you know what your doing anyway.

    Bbird1, Well, right out of the box - you expect confessions. OK on the rarest occasion I MIGHT share a spot of lunch with the fish. I bet I haven't used half a slice in my entire 80+ years for bait. FRANKLY, SPAM, in it's 40 odd flavors is not a popular bait selection. Maybe 1% of the meat crowd. I'LL have a look about for the garlic for you. THESE ARE THE PLAIN GARLIC AND BELOW ARE THE SEASONAL SPECIALTIES THIS KIND OF CAUGHT MY EYE PHONE

    I don't think I've ever mixed groundbait the night before, but I do take my time and mix it very gradually and carefully on the bank, and then let it stand for a while before mixing again with extra water if needed. It might be paranoia but I would only use lake water to mix it with, not tap water.
