Ape antics

Discussion in 'UK Motorcycles' started by The Older Gentleman, Oct 21, 2007.

  1. I had to go to the council tip today, to dispose of an old frame and
    other bits of unwanted metal, and some bottles... lots of empty

    ....and The Doctor wanted me to fill a great garden bag with 'soil
    improver' (they chuck all the garden waste into a container and let it
    rot down, and you can help yourself, which is what I call spending the
    taxpayers' money wisely).

    So I decided to tote it all in the Ape.

    Got there, and the young'un on the gate, who checks to see you do really
    live in the neighbourhood, boggled and said: "Sorry, mate. No vans and
    pick-ups on a Sunday."

    "It's not a van. It's a moped."

    <Suspicious tone> "It looks like a pick-up to me." <Becoming surer of
    himself> "Just a very small one."

    "It's a moped."

    "I'll ask me guvnor."

    "It's a motorbike! It's OK!" shouts the boss, and in I trundle, to be
    surrounded by all the staff of the tip who're prodding and ogling it.

  3. Great big husky working-class salt-of-the-earth geezers. You want an Ape
    to spice up your love life, you really do.

    I was wondering the very same thing.

    How fast does the Ape go? Would it get to the elephant?

    They probably weren't sure what category of waste it belonged in. :)

    If you start now, you stand a chance to get there before it's over.

    Well, I can. Just.

    That's rather a presumptuous statement isn't it? I don't recall
    discussing my tastes or love life on here.

    Nothing wrong with a bit of speculation, biker boy.
