Are you related to Animal Chin?
Let's see if anyone gets the reference...
Mr Chin is my nickname from years back. It's reference to Chineyman or Chin. I take no offence by it, as all my friends and even acquaintances know me by this name.
So answer to your question is probably a Yes.
EDIT: A bit of Google-fu suggests skateboarding, which it definitely isn't, I'm not a skateboarder btw!
I got out for a ride in Sunday with the Mrs. Had a lil bimble around the south hams.
Then the bike went in for its MOT on Tuesday morning, all passed of course.
Getting stir crazy already.
The sun shinning it's about 15°c and the roads are empty. I have 2 bikes sitting in my garage both with over half a tank of fuel in them.....arghhhh
I have a plan.
Going to fill my back pack with some groceries and go for a ride. If stopped, (depending on where I am at the time) I have either been shopping or am taking said groceries to my wife's elderly parents!
Edit ...the missus (who works for the NHS) has just guilt tripped me into not carrying out above genius level plan. Am settling with getting the blade out for a good clean and polish...not the same though
It's very tough being a biker right now. Great weather and empty roads, the temptation to get out there is very strong. 99 times out of 100 it wouldn't cause any issue either, ride in isolation, don't stop and mix, no harm done.
What stops me is that risk of breaking down, or, even worse, coming off and needing medical/police support. Putting someone else in a position where they need to be in close contact, just because I wanted a blast, doesn't sit right with me. Not to mention pulling them away from people who genuinely need them through no fault of their own.
We're all adults with decisions to make, mine is to leave the bike in the garage, tempting as it might be to do otherwise.
Great name by the way! (my son is named Marc with a 'C')
The government realise that some only have a motorcycle as their only form of transport, hence saying if you do need to go out, please don't ride like Rossi! I too won't go out on my bike during the Budweiser Virus, as I do have the cage if need be for essential trips.
I was out for a quick bimble (in isolasation obvs) to bed in the new tyres and oil. So took things steady...
Didn't realise you had to bed in new oil? I also got new tyres fitted (Angel GT on rear & ST on front) and bike serviced. The back end did slip very slightly on a tight bend giving it some. Other than that...it was a nice day in the Emerald Isle.
One of my favourite all time skate films, Hawk, Cabalero, Mountain, Gurrero and McGill. I watched this for hours and hours as a youngster before going out and trying to emulate my hero's! Skated up the the age of 17 when's cars, girls and beer got in the way!!
Near Holmes Chapel? Or a different viaduct?
For F**ks sake why can’t you all just STAY HOME like your asked it’s a small hardship to pay for the greater good.
The more people who keep going out the more people transmit and carry the disease so numbers increase and lockdown goes on for longer,just toe the f**king line and the sooner it will be over it’s not rocket science
Oh.....I so want to get out for a ride but I know it the wrong thing to do, maybe the long way round to Tesco tomorrow
I work in the supermarket industry I wish people woukd just adhere to the distance rules some of the population are as thick as shit buy what you need.....when in stores keep you distance .....respect the staff ....just because you can't buy certain products it's not there fault in fact all f......off and stay at home and eat what you already have stashed away just think how better you will feel without that belly slapped all over your tank......this has just got very real I think if you were to go for a social ride you are a complete w......Kerr in the current climate.
Had to queue to get out of a sainsburys today? Fair enough limiting the people entering to keep numbers inside the shop down but why they cant count you out and then let the next 10 people in... I would have been out in the car park yet I was told I needed to walk past a queue of others and stand in a line up before we could leave.
Have to say some supermarkets have been great with trolley washing etc.
and now @Spygoat
I'm going to watch it tonight.
I don't know why but I can't remember Rodney Mullens part in the video?!
I met him in Manchester when he was over doing a demo!
