Happy birthday.

« on: October 03, 2017, 03:26:27 PM »
Having celebrated a milestone birthday in September and having been treated to a trip trail riding in Spain. Birthday celebrations are now officially closed with the delivery of my VR46 watch. The presentation box signed by Mr Rossi himself.

No legs....

I wonder if it's a few seconds slower than the Marquez watch  ::) :P :-*
People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.

Funny you should say that.....

I did hear that someone overheard Marquez saying "I can do 12 laps 20 seconds quicker than that old Italian puff". Naturally I do believe this.

Mmm, switching over to the Jorge Lorenzo camp. Interesting, very interesting.

Well he showed he was "Spanish First" in a certain race a couple of years ago, didn't he.

About four races, if memory serves me correctly.
Still if he chooses not to honour the racing code of not interfering in a title contest has no chance of winning.He has to live with it.
I don't, and never would, dispute his ability as a racer, but his antics lost both he and Lorenzo, a lot of support.

I like Mr Rossi's watch.

Personally, I'd prefer Mr Rossi's ice-cream van you were pointing at in another photo (which is not available as you need to update you photobucket account to enable 3rd. party hosting!).
If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.
