I didn't find it as good last year as previous years so I'm giving it a miss for once.

I'm trying to work out a way of getting from Reading to Manchester withou car, train, bus or plane this weekend. Been advised to avoid them until I'm healed. Want to see my ill stepdad and drive the DRK back down south.

All that are going - enjoy and make the most of it.

I think Team WFA should almost have their own stand/stage at the NEC show. Each member could assume a role, part Top Gear, part Three Stooges.

We could. We act the roles out regularly...

Chris is Clarkson, Liam is the Hamster and I'm well, it's obvious isn't it.... Captain Slow...

We get into character very well. Impossible to tell us apart from the real thing at times...

Except I'm possibly more James May than he is himself...

210 miles is a little far, even for me. Were it summer and I had just had my head drilled, I'd take a few days and cycle it. Done that before.

All joking aside Mike, after all the work I've done on a cross trainer recently I reckon I could do a fair few miles on a bike now...

You know Malcolm, I'm having a lot of trouble making the subframe grow. It's been there years now and not grown a bit... Things grow up around it though...

I've killed all the exhausts...

All I can grow is strawberries and spuds Will, everything else, apart from weeds, refuse to grow for me...
