Rock and rolling Rockwood

Reactions: 

Brian's last two strips on the subject of You Tube and music videos had me chuckling to myself.

Seems that we have both come to the same conclusion that some of the older stuff is in comparison to today's music is rather lacking in finish... but that is not why I post them. It is for the memories they bring back...
But enough of the past, today had its share of highlights, the Cheetah's won another game and seem to be on the way to the Final in a few weeks time. This is the first year that they have not lost one game so far. The fight seems to be between the other teams who will join them in the final.
After almost a month I decided to fire up Shrek and see if the battery still worked... What a sweet sound a single cylinder makes... the motor fired at once! On further inspection the bike seems to have just three bits of Tupperware that need replacement, the R/H flasher lens, side cover and fairing panel all have cracks or scratches. I will be getting quotes next week when the bike goes in for it's service and warranty repair to the water pump. If the lot is less than my excess I will not even be claiming. Wish my leg was as easy to fix. I can't wait to get back in the saddle and feel the wind and the sound of the engine again. Who needs music while riding?
So to stay with rock and roll and motorbikes here is one of my favourite biker songs by Chris Spedding... the whole song is today's quote!

[via FoxyTunes / Chris Spedding]- Motorbikin' . Yeah, the video sucks! But listen to the way Chris brings feeling to the song, it Rocks! What's the bet he rode a motorbike sometime in his life?
Motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor cycling
Moving on the Queens highway looking like a streak of lightening
If you gotta go go gotta go motor bike riding

Listen to me and I'll tell you no lie
Too fast to live too young to die
I bought a new machine today say
It takes your breath away.

Motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor cycling
Moving on the Queens highway looking like a streak of lightening.

Oh baby won’t you come with me
I'll take you where you want to be

Well here I am again I'm dressed in black
I got my baby she's a riding up back
A we're doing about ninety five
Whoo it's so good to be alive.

Motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor cycling
Moving on the Queens highway looking like a streak of lightening
If you gotta go go gotta go motor bike riding

Motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor bikin' - motor cycling
Moving on the Queens highway looking like a streak of lightening
If you gotta go go gotta go motor bike riding
