    Could this hold the record for oldest resurrected thread?

    Possibly the record on here, but someone replied to a 22 year old post in the rec.windsurfing usenet group earlier this year. The best bit is the original post was someone in the U.S. asking about Bic Saxo 253's, & the 22-years-too-late reply was someone saying they've got one for sale in Switzerland if it was of any interest. Quite surreal really.

    You can bike on the water now.

    Sold my Sprint ST when it got to 70k miles and haven't got around to replacing it yet. The problem is that the boys bikes are in the garage (a ZX6R and a Thundercat) and are such good fun to ride that I just haven't got the same kind of motivation that I would have if there was nothing in there.

    Off to Qatar again in March to do tech duties at the MotoGP. Ask nicely and I'll say hello to VR46 for you.
    Got an opinion? Great. Guess what, so's everyone else!
