    ladies & Gents,

    I was gonna post this in the thread ' need a new pushbike' - and then I read some of it...Jeez

    < deep breath>

    Last year I rode a mate's Halfords road bike from Edinburgh to London in company with some ver gallant Service wounded ( and 1 racy lady) .....' So What?'

    Now, if you like, it's your turn....

    The way the previous thread spilled over 8 pages of people calling each other **** sums up how the spirit of Arrse has changed since the bad old days when Noah was a boy and Pontius was the pilot.

    Take a dekko - have a think - have a pop, if you fancy it.

    ' There is no TRY...either DO..or DO NOT '

    Peace & Lurve y'all
