The London marathon

Just thought I would say best of luck to our Pinto Nick who is doing the London marathon in the morning and I understand it’s for the small holders club in Enfield .
Here’s a shot of nick in training .......................

I think that’s when you found a finger print on the side window and run back to see if I had some mr sheen to remove it :lol:
Stunning Capri mate yes for the life of me I don’t know why I was taking a picture I can only think it was how the petrol tank looks from behind .

I understand that you're trying to keep your achievements low profile, but I watched the end of the marathon live on TV.
Fair play, you look as if you didn't even break into a sweat! :)
