Dandyism

Drogo gave me some stick for my £2.99 100% polyester ladies scarf, bought in emergency from Tie Rack, Stanstead airport, just before boarding to Verona as Skooter Farm Dave was freaking out that Gary and I hadn't brought any neck fashion with us. (I'd forgotten my beloved Ruby-Eley-Kishimoto 100% pure silk one). Under pressure, Gary opted for a safer gentleman's cravat shot through with russet, also on sale.
However, here is a case of the pansy calling the rose pink. It seems Drogo has used the Tie Rack online shop as a parts catalogue for decorating Co-Built 6. I actually like the butterscotch fudge sundae flavor seat. My Guzzi has a brown suede seat and been ridden in all weathers for the past 20 years, and I've never wished I'd stuck to vinyl. Seriously man your svelte new bike "painted in Aston Matrin metalic grey, and period Jaguar racing red" tis good enough to eat. I look forward to spraying it with shale in the new season.
PS Please dont wear that spotty button kaftan - not even in the pits. It's really not you. BP

BP,
harsh but true, I'm a girly ponce with a secret fascination for swagged pelmets. That the seat doesn't have a silk tassel fringe is a miracle of restraint...
However that whole 'spayed in shale' thing has rubbed my silk stockings the wrong way, I demand honor, I demand a one on one race at Coventry, I demand 'BLOUSE-QUAKE'

Ben's got a good point, if you end up on the wrong side of his euro crapper and have to eat shale you won't be able to just blame the bike with a fancy iron like that.. This is a sad state of affairs for any racer, so I've thought of a couple of handy excuses that might help you out:

My piston is still 'bedding in'.

The suede seat was chaffing my inner thigh and I had to stop to moisturise.

I was blinded by the sun reflecting off my new bright pink paintjob.

I got distracted looking at my awesome reflection in a puddle and forgot to corner.

I didn't want to get it dirty.


Seriously though dude looks amazing, can't wait to see it in the metal! Another Co-Built work of art..

Thanks Jamie,

but you forgot the most likely excuse. "I was too distracted watching Jamie go all suicide bomber and crash again"...

Fair point.. i even managed to get my first crash in early this year which got me a titanium collarbone upgrade and a cool new scar!
I'll be going pretty easy until it all heals up (that's my excuse sorted anyway!).. ;)

Another. Co-built baby sqeezed out, better wailing pipes instead of wailing cake holes!!, she's a looker anyway. Enjoy wringing her neck!.
