Just sat through Oceans Eight. Terrible movie obviously written to satisfy some odd gender equality fad. Anyhow, finally reached the end when one of the lead characters throughs her leg over a ratty 750 Triumph! Finally something interesting, the kickstart drops with ease and the bike fires up and rides of into the sunset. All to the sound of a modern four pot wiz bang!

Their having a Giraffe!

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth;
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere out in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth!

You missed out on 85 minutes in the workshop Rod. You’ll never get that back.

I watched the remake of Poseidon the other night. Still regretting that.

We're gearing up to see the new, 4th version of A Star Is Born. I like Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga is amazing in everything she does. We expect to like it- although in preparation we watched the Kristopherson/Streisnad 1977 (or whatever year) release. Quite regrettable indeed, although I do like Kris K as a singer/songwriter (he co-wrote Me & Bobby McGee) and Gary Busey is always fun...

The original Harry Potter came on the telly the other night and in the opening sequence Hagrid(?) comes flying out of the clouds on a pre unit Triumph. It looked to be a '58 or '59 T110 but I can't be sure. I forced myself to sit through the entire movie in the hope of seeing it again but no joy

Don't you hate it when they have a classic bike in a movie but never ever give you a clear shot....so you can't see what bike it is. Generally you can take a stab at it and get close, but it burns you cos you're not sure.

I used to go to the movies occasionally, but since the better half got hearing aids we don't do that or live music any more...…..aaarrrggghh the sacrifices!!!

Magnum Force with Clint Eastwood as Dirty Henry, er, uh Harry. The corrupt motorcycle cops are riding around on police Moto Guzzi's. The cops are chasing Harry around on some aircraft carrier and Harry jumps on one of the downed cops bikes and, voila, it turns into a Triumph T100 in CHIP's (California Highway Patrol) trim. I had recorded it and played the scene back many times. I thought it was a 650 but googling proved me wrong. Supposedly the stunt guys wanted the more nimble T100s. I guess the director and the continuity guys assumed no one would know the difference.
