Default Exciting news..........

......... The Dean is coming back to Dubai, after a gap of nearly four years.

I'll be arriving tomorrow evening (probably), so could somebody notify the police so that they can keep the cheering crowds under control?

Arriving just as Eid begins might seem a little weird, but..... oh, hang on - are the bars open during Eid in Dubai this year?

Bruising? He ought to sit a little further back from the fuel tank, that should help. But MM, how do you know?

Well they do say matt black is the new chrome.

I don't have a matt black helmet though. I have a shiny black one OR a custom painted one depending mood.
