£12 - £3 = £9 less 25 % = £6.75

Lovely bottle, imitating stained glass windows.

As dry as any with an aromatic note. A teeny bit Parma violet methinks.

Nice enough and very good price (though waaaaay overpriced at original £12).

Much prefer own brand vintage but that's been OOS for ages.

Hi Ba....

I am really getting into Cava. Both pink and white. There is a new pale as a Provence rose Cava at Asda for just under 6 quid that is next on my list to try. The nicest so far has been Tesco Finest Vintage ( white ). Can you recommend a better one for a tenner or less.

Ye gods ! Gogs to be sure to be sure. How are you my lad ? Good to see you back on here. :D :D :D

Had a BIG off last July and wrote off the bike. Came very close to writing me off as well.

Wrecked helmet, jkt and trousers, ribs, thumb and back.

Rebuilt the bike but not my confidence yet. Spring coming we'll see.

BIG match up coming...

Mine as well (see my other posts on here). They changed their supplier but it's still good.

Down to £7 at the mo.

I am well, thanks.

Bloody hell, Ba ! Did you come off on a day out with your biking pals or were you just out and about.

"Rebuilt the bike but not my confidence yet. Spring coming we'll see."

Get back on....

"BIG match up coming..."

Indeed. Wales on an 11 match roll but England demolished France and looked like world beaters.

On my own, left hand bend. met some farm effluent. Brakes didn't work so went straight on, luckily nowt coming tother way.
When the front wheel met dry tarmac, the brakes were on full which snapped the bars over to full lock and smashed me into the ground at about 55 mph.

I've done a couple of hundred miles, but it's hard going. 0 - 60 in 2.9s and 180 mph is a bit of a beast.

Must try that.

Not keen on Co-Ops - horrid muzak, loads of OOS stuff and reduced (going OOD). Seems they are on a roll though, looking for new premises (white sites).
