I used it to visit my GF (now my wife) every friday night, 20 miles across the smoke near Twickenham. One night I lost control at a roundabout near Tolworth, and slid on my side into a bus shelter, scattering the surprised occupants. The next week, the same roundabout, the same time, the same bus shelter, the same occupants! On another subject, the Kinks were playing at Plymouth, UK, in October 2005! Have fun. (BTW, I recall being ejected by the bouncers at the Orchid Ballroom, Purley. Those were the days!) Nick.
