Soup Slurping Ottoman Greek Style

A tradition handed down to me by my Forefathers and considered to be the height of politeness in Asia Minor.

P.S. The Mrs Nikos commentary probably adds a little je ne sais quoi  to this rare and offensive footage.

I am CanBus

Following a devastating bout of ManFlu (R), black ice and slush in my drive, I have managed to pick up CanBus, my new passport to be enslaved and beholden to the mercy of BMW Motorrad workshops and specialists who own a GS-911 Fault Code Reader.

In this near live image feed, CanBus awaits the proving run to Knutsford.

Take Five

Roger of New Zealand threw down a  gauntlet and with much haste I scanned my photographic output for five evocative images of 2011.

April : Mrs N finds a nice motorcycle instructor for refresher training.
July:  We become demented in the heat of New York

October:  A fine early morning view on the way to Hamburg celebrating my entry into Lufthansa frequent flyer status

November:  Son comes out to play at Formby beach.

December:  Daughter is 21 and I take her and her Grandmother to where my parents took me when I was 21 (yes, the Cherwell Boat House is still there by the River Cherwell).

Ich bin zwei Motorräder

Actually drei if I count Ronny Barker the baby GS that really belongs to Mrs N.

She is a 2007 model - the height of perfection with brakes that work and proper gearing.  This is a stock picture - mine will look filthier than this 5 minutes after I pick her up next week.
