In London ... need ideas.

So right now I'm in London and tomorrow I pick up a CBR600rr to play with and I need some ideas as to where I should go.

I was just in London back in July and I went to every tourist place I could think of aside from ...

Stonehenge



I'm around two hours ride away from there so I'm not sure if I want to spend four hours slabbin' it, when I won't be here for that long.

I'm definitely gonna hit up Ace Cafe, but other than that, I have no clue.

So I need ideas!

I can still see it since it's in my cache that's why I couldn't tell if it's a cap'n I can't see shit or not. It's a pic of Green Street Hooligans.

If that doesn't float your boat go find you some pikeys and buy a caravan from them

Hit up the Triumph factory and ask if they can make you an uncrashable Triumph.

I thought Canterbury was a good day trip and worth the sightseeing. I can't remember anything else, because I was 20 and was pretty wasted the whole time.

Go see another taping of Top Gear. And if you don't have tickets to get in...use your head to get in. Well more specifically just use a certain large orifice in your head. I mean thats always what I heard, They all smoke fags over there right?

Head out towards Bedford, nice roads and alot of ruins

The right way is not always the popular and easy way. Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character
