    It has been said that a generation of young Irish men have a fetish for women’s shoulders.
    This is a result of years of slow dial up internet.

    I’ll leave the rest to your imagination......

    I am proud to admit I was one of them, it was a close shave but didn't come out on top...

    I think the wires on them all corrode and give bother. Unfortunately they normally just give intermittent faults and before you know it you’ve invested in a Friday evening model and there’s a no returns policy.

    The auld ones are great for a bit of fun for a few hours but you'd want something modern if you were going to be on it everyday

    Press the wrong button in something modern these days and you could find yourself in all sorts of trouble. !!!

    Something modern is far better for a young buck. As most of them come with a guidance system

    Takes a real man to get on a classic and make her roar in the right direction.

    You would have to question the guidance system at times,
    Still nothing like the classics to get lads talking....

    Just make sure to wipe your dipstick well after checking the oil.


    (Who knew a simple add in the classifieds section would descend to such depravity!)

    Reminds when we first got dial up and I'd just got myself a scanner for photos. Hadn't a clue back then and tried sending a 50mb TIFF into a photo competition. Thought it was a bit slow so went to bed, came down next morning and the roof of the house (the main subject of the snap) was just about sent! Started thinking about the job a bit more after that.

    Dial up, what a dose, the brother used send me e.mail from New Zealand, I'd have to tell the household not to pick up the phone as it would knock out the connection and after a few hours I'd end up looking at a picture of his dog or a fish he had caught ffs.

    While grinding along at base level how do you you keep the lady in your life moaning long after you're done?

    Wipe the dipstick on the duvet.

    Ah I don't know, you in look the magazine's and you see the classics other lads have and you think, that could me, so you head out with the intention of bringing something home that'll be handy for doing a few jobs around the place and be a bit of fun. Something with a bit of age but low mileage on the clock, something that you can bring to a few shows. The reality soon hits when you get to check a few out, open the cab you'll find the headlining sagging badly and there's this fusty odour from a leak that's ongoing for the last few years. Throw off a few of the panels and you'll find more leaks, she'll more than likely have being rebored and the exhaust will be smoking badly. Oh not and it's not advised to have a classic running in convince spaces because the fumes can be nausceous.

    Well stuck them up on facebook and they went within the hour!
    Asked a donation to the local Young Farmers for then. Got £10 which I thought was ok. Better than burning them!
    Fella had bought a small International to restore and wanted info on it!
