Guzzi Cafe Racer

I got a new project underway a couple of months back and after making some good progress it's slowed up with the frame being away getting some seat support brackets welded on. When it comes back I'll then be scratching my head as to whether to have side panels or not? Also, for only the second time (3rd time if I consider the old Raceco race bike) in my 24 / 25 years of owning Guzzi's I'm considering having de-linked brakes on it. Not sure why I'm considering the latter as I like the linked system?

Benjamin Clementine - Colston Hall 2017

I'm really very glad that I made the effort to go to the Colston Hall on Friday evening to see Benjamin Clementine. It was a last minute decision and I had to go on my own, but because of this was also able to get a seat in the Stalls just 12 rows back from the front. I have to say that in the first  30 - 40 minutes of the show there were a few songs / chants that I wasn't that keen on and could also have lived without some of the minor theatricals. However, I came away feelin' that I'd just seen somebody pretty special as his voice / style are fairly unique and the Bass player and Drummer were a excellent accompaniment too
