That makes me think of a remark my cousin (a Chief Super in the Met, now retired) made when he saw a piece of Graffitti saying "F*** the Police" in Paris.

He said he thought it was excellent advice to offer the delectable young Parisian ladies he'd just been admiring.

Took my M3W. out for a trip to the Cotswolds before Christmas after all of the snow had gone in Oxford but on one stretch of road out in the countryside there was a line of snow/slush in the middle of the lane where it had not been cleared away by four wheelers driving over it. Managed to avoid it with my back wheel most of the time but at one point the back wheel did hit it and then we started to slide around going from side to side. Thought I was going to go broadside but luckily didn’t. Was very scary.

That brings back memories of the late 1980s a large group of mog over the lakes met up at the car park behind the hotel in Newby Bridge. BUT so did the TR lads by was it fun as I walked past with my tankie overalls on , I forgot it had "Morgan the real sports car" . All of a sudden I was off a load of TR lads shouting "after him chuck him in the lake." No Knights in Morgans came to my aid just rofl Thank God I can run , and dived into the mog . The best bit was the metal bar over the exit on the way out if you drove up to it in a mog put your hand on it it would lift a bit, just enough for a mog to slip under
No Mog owners paid . But the TR lads could not get under , no idea what they called us I think it was naughty innocent.
As we set of on a 100 mile run over every pass, nook and cranny .
What did we come across high up on pass but the TR lads heading towards us . Both being Gentlemen they refused to shift and so did us , like kids in a school yard we got out and started to hurl insults at each other . But no one could stand up for laughing . One TR lad was sitting in the rear of a dark blue TR3 looking like Hitler with a flying jacket , helmet and goggles
. But the best bit was he had a toy WELL I THINK IT WAS ! machine gun fixed to the rear and it was making one hell of a noise as the rat a tat tat. Loads of dead mog owners on the ground and in the mogs . We refused to give way and so did them it was a sit out . Just wondering if you go that way look for a wooden frame with a skeleton in it. After a good while tin tops arrived at both sides and started to moan no sense of fun. So we all had to sneak past each other shouting rude things.



But another time we went over by ourselves had a ride about and headed for the ferry the queue huge and we stood about . After several trips across for cars it did not seem to get any smaller .
Then along came a German car it drove straight past everyone and parked on a bit of grass land and two women got out. All the people where saying look at that , " we have been here hours" .
I am not a talker I am a do'er . I walked down to them and said " if you think you are going to try and sneak on that ferry you can forget it " . They started to chat to me in German , so I replied in German telling them to "speak English and not try my temper". Then walked away , a long while later the cars came off and my theory was correct first on was the two German women . I was off like a shot and on deck talking to the boss . "Get them off here now was my remark" . When told he removed them instantly and sent them to the back up the road .
Funny at tea time in the hotel the owner was telling us there was a problem with some Germans on the ferry and an English chap got them thrown off . We just grin2 and innocent
