Lightning from memory.  Heck of a jump from a tweaked 150 to a top level 650!

Due to starting a family, I went from a Lambretta to a Triumph Thunderbird 6T But it did have a chair on it.

The angst of the young family man.  I vaguely remember when dad had a Panther with a chair.  My older brother rode pillion and I  had to share the chair with mother.  A year or so later an Oldsmobile Sedan turned up so the chair got retired to the retired motorbike shed.  Then a couple of years later so to the Panther when it proved less ideal as a farm bike.  Old Bantams proved the most useful for farm work.  Strange isn't it.... Dads last bike was one of the first batch of Honda 90 ag bikes which has a lot in common with my current farm bike a Suzuki Smash 110cc!

I’ve got a Fiat Spider 2000. Soft Top. 1980. I take it out on a Sunday morning after a Bacon and Egg breakfast.

Talk about off topic.

The way things are at the moment here I can’t see me driving it this year in Italy.

If you eat dinner on that table a farmer put it there.  Well,  maybe your wife cooked it a bit but without that farmer you would be eating berries out in the woods! So something slightly off topic is OK with me.  I know I have occasionally gone off topic.  😏 My problem is I loose track of what the thread was about if the thread is very long.  I recently sold my Suzuki GSX-1000R back in Oz.  There was no way I could get it on the road here in Thailand so finally I relented and gave my son permission to sell. Now I  have officially retired, 555, I won't be returning to Oz every 4 months as the family business is finished...the son has a shop fitting job and makes a ton of money.  I don't think he will go back to cabinet making.  Anyway all this typing is making me hungry.  I just asked the wife to go make me a bacon and egg roll but apparently I  can wait till 6.30 pm when dinner is served.......

Untill this coronavirus pandemic is over I've decided to stop curing my own bacon, watching people handling all the belly pork is too much to bare. So I buy my sausage and bacon at Makro, it is 280ish baht for 1kg, which is not too bad but it does contain quite a bit of water.

However it still tastes very good in my homemade bread, after it has shrunk that is (the bacon, not the bread)😀

 

Just making myself a sausage sandwich in my own homemade bread, 2 small loaves at the front and 3 large at the back, will last me a couple of weeks.

And his bread is very good as he sent me the recipe several years ago and I use it for bread rolls mainly now.

Thought I would give bacon a go. Got 2kg belly from the market @ Bht 140 / kg. After reading loads of recipes on You Tube decided I would make Thai bacon so rubbed in Sea salt and Sweet Chilli Sauce, which is basically sugar, chillis & garlic. In a sealable bag for 7 days in the fridge, dried for 2 days, then smoked in my normal oven for 4 hours with home-made tamarind wood chips. What can I say...............effin' marvellous.

Please re-post the recipe. My bread always turns out very heavy.

Stouricks are you using a bread machine to make your bread, IMO machines make ok bread (awaits a roasting from britman2) and that's is a far has it goes. My stand mixer made better bread and I could make more loaves and freeze them to last a couple of weeks. But it gave up the ghost a few months ago and I found a video on youtube of a guy making bread from start to finish, it involves hand kneeding for 8 minutes, but the little extra work is well worth the effort. And to keep on topic, your homemade bacon sandwiches will never taste better.

The video is well worth watching, it will only take up 30 minutes of your time.
