Immigrants like Basil brought it with them, whilst ravishing and corrupting their virgins, so it's a reciprocal arrangement . . .

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

The bike I used for the 2005 Dun Run weighed more than that.

That looks like a cow-slurry pusher.  There are lots of them here in rural Cheshire.  And cows for that matter.

I have to say I'd paid no attention to its attachment, only to its essential tractorness.

Now that's sad. I noticed this old heavy roller was missing this morning.  I also noticed the replacement modern thing.
Seems is wasn't heavy enough and they've sold it to a Pembrokeshire cricket club.

Too late to suggest that there are plenty of people around here that would have made it heavy enough if they'd been taught to drive it.  :demon:

The tractor looks like a Massey Ferguson 35. We have just bought one as a new toy for son-in-law (yes - a full sized one)
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is...
