Weston-Super-Mare Bike Night

So one of my colleagues clued me in to a motorbike meet up that happens every Thursday from 6:00pm, over at Weston-Super-Mare. It sounded like a giggle, so I rode down and took a look.

I could explain how, in my personal opinion, that Thrifty is a bad and dishonest company. But that is way too much negativity for a PSA. So […]

My 40K Space Wolf – The build so far
