The Congolese delegation for the Olympic games is ready to leave Kinshasa with the famous
"Speedy Bamboela Cadillac V10" Congo's new record holder over 100m, the new record is 101m.
President Mobutu accompanies the delegation to the airport.
The president of the Congolese Olimpic federation has prepared a little speech to be read by Mobutu.
Mobutu starts to read: Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
Someone whispers in his ear: these are the Olimpic rings.

On a very special day today, I finished the electric loom. I bought an endoscope to see my valves, I believe everything is OK.
Tomorrow I put back the rocker covers, put the pressure on the tires, start the engine and if the weather permits I do the first test on the road on Saturday.
I am a little afraid because my physical condition has not improved this winter, my hip is making me suffer. the most important thing is that the engine is running smoothly.
A very special day too because it is the birthday of my beloved Marina. She had visits from her friends all day and after the workshop I prepared two lobsters of one kilo each.
One of Marina's friends asks her her age, Marina says: it doesn't ask a lady.
Two minutes later the friend asks how much she weighs? Marina answers, I am 65 years old
Cross your fingers for me please

What a great day to do your first road test with the Seeley.
I am very satisfied, the engine runs perfectly, I did not exceed 4000 RPM because everything is new, only once I was at 5000 RPM, what to say before 4000 RPM the engine behaves like a normal Commando but above 4000 it's like turning on the post combustion, the horses jostle each other out of the gearbox. I only did 10Kms and I am happy, also that despite my condition I can still drive the Seeley.
Fabien was following me in the car and he filmed the test, tomorrow he will put the video on the site.
Only negative points: the odometer does not work right and the suspensions are too hard for my old bones
Tomorrow the video

What do you mean with wicked Yves?
I believe he is just using an "old saying" referring to your heavy workload (--Retorque the head, still a lot of work, I must take the coil, the carbs and the battery away to retorque--). as being due to your previous "sinful" ways or being a "wicked" boy in your life. It's meant as a kind of joke or light hearted reply. --"Being Wicked previously means you get no peace & tranquility presently" kind of thing.

Originating as a biblical quote, no rest for the wicked is a proverb that means evil-doers will face eternal punishment. However, It now popularly means that one's work never ceases. So it has a double-entendre.

Here is what I did today:
Reassemble the coil, the battery and the carbs.
I'll take a little tour tomorrow or the day after tomorrow, to heat the oil before draining and changing the oil filter.

I spent the first ten years of my life in the Belgian Congo
We had a Congolese servant to help with the housework.
One day my father bought him clothes, shorts and a shirt.
The problem was, his dick was sticking out from under the shorts.
My father who has always been a Macgyver, found the solution:
He tied a knot in it
