I've heard that works on blue pipes, too.

A very wise woman told me to get a comfortable seat since I'm sitting on a million dollars.

Well, after watching that vid all I can say is that my insides should be completely rust free.

Ever stop to think.....and forget to start again?

You rub aluminum foil on your teeth? And Breezer, I don't even want to know...

I won't stop riding because you tell me about someone who died in an accident, just as I won't stop eating because someone died of e.coli.

Trying to pass that foil hurts like a mo-fo.

Steventhechef ... er...the video, the Beezer and the 'fairies' are mine...

Bit of background on the video.

The 'fairies' are my two (10 & & 13).

My wife's family are from the Isle of Man so they go over quite often and the famous 'Fairy Bridge' is 1/2 mile from my in-laws house. When we go to Douglas (IOM) we pass over it and say 'Good Morning (or Evening ) little people'. All the Manx people do - young and old.
My mother in law quote loads of instances of people not doing it because it's 'nonsense' and then they find their car wont start or their keys go missing (not for long, by legend the Fairies are mischievous rather than bad).

My 13 year old can kickstart my Beezer from cold (quite a trick) but in the video, when she mounted she clicked it into gear and as she put weight on the kickstart it fell over.

I support The Prostate Cancer Charity here in the UK and plan to make another video so I want my channel to go a bit 'viral'.

Please spread the video around if you like it (and comment) Thanks
Ross
