... and goat tracks.

And yet when I take my herd of goats for a walk on a cycle track, the cyclists go potty! Can't have it both ways, not even on a foldy-up bicycle...

To give di-blasi their due, its not often the specs for a moped give you a list of compatible spark plugs! :D  

 

You see this sort of thing in the paddock at motorcycle race meetings. I guess they're pretty well suited to that, but are they road legal? They look like they could be, but I shudder to think what a meeting with a council pothole would do to a 5" wheeled machine! Notwithstanding that, a tiny motorcycle with minimal road presence wouldn't be my first choice in today's traffic. It does go some way towards solving the narrowboat storage part of the conundrum though!

You cant take them on a Motorway

But I have never objected to goats on the towpath, even when Emil’s billy threatened to butt people into Clitheroe’s Lock, back in the day. So I feel entitled.

Sis used to have a very arsey ram, used to charge her every time she crossed the field, until Sis being Sis had enough, let it charge, stepped to one side tripped it upside down, tied its legs together and carried on for an hour or so.

Never tried that again ;)

Anyone who can face down, rope and tie a ram is gonna have few problems with a wee scabby beagle, but it's the thing with the branding iron that's the worrying bit! :help:

cat s rated and no longer dog p rated.

This is someone who put her kneecap back after she dislocated it falling of a horse and then walked home, the beaglecat would cause few problems

This is only the 2nd woman hating sheep, I've heard of.

We, as kids had a cade lamb, as a pet, but as he grew up (minus his "bits") he turned quite nasty, particularly towards women, we never managed to change him.  But mother was very happy when he had to go!

6 years cruising for me, 3 different motor bikes. Current bike is a Honda MSX125, sometimes known as a Grom. It's the best of the three being 4 inches shorter, don't have to worry about uneven stonework in locks. I usually leave it on its side stand close to the boat which is technically against the rules but only once has a CRT chap taken issue. Top box on the back, can carry a 10kg bag of coal and I risked a leisure battery once.

 

I wouldn't be without a motor bike when cruising. The only downside for me is lack of gaps in the hedge in many areas which limits mooring choices.
