    I have a friend who does it. He calls it "pesting". We're going to go out and pester our way round the town. Then off to Smash Palace. I don't see the attraction frankly but I am now old.

    I was thinking of attending a Syd's run when I got better as I read about it from hospital bed several months back, and resolved to get my Stinger going and load the van with it and dirtbike. Sounds like they wouldn't want me on a standard bike.

    . . . still have to get the energy to get it up and running anyway.

    Yup, SP is my old haunt, Chris is a top bloke. Most of them are but I haven't caught up with them for ages.

    Lot of Vintage club bikes on Syd's run. I'm sure the Stinger would be welcome.
    I met the QCR in bulk when they did a run to Hororata. Probably as far as they'd ever go. Heard a swarm of bees coming up the road so went and had a look.
    One was channelling Dave - "It seized at least 15 times coming out here " announced proudly as he started to take the barrel off a small Yamaha.

    Walked quietly away, laughing to myself.

    Ha. I raced 27 years and only ever seized Air-cooled *ondas.. maybe 4 times. Most of the time on Suzuki. Zero seizes.

    Actually I nipped the LCerised honda once.

    They must have inspired the next generation, I quite often see a bunch of younguns around our place on old chopped up steppies and small commuter bikes, but they're definitely not heading towards their 40's.

    Still less annoying than the idiots riding around the cycle lanes on unregistered trail bikes.
    Riding cheap crappy old bikes badly since 1987

    We have kids on bicycles with bull horns and annoying music occasionally. They can't be enjoying it, the only pleasure is in upsetting other people.

    Very mature.
