It’s really good to be back in touch with my friend Davis. We shared a house for a good few years and worked together on the Town & Country Club crew when I wasn’t off touring…we shared a lust for Le Tour, for Twin Peaks, for The Pixies Husker Du The Buzzcocks The Blue Nile and more besides. And we loved our bikes.

Anyway, I was enjoying being back in touch with him until he sent me this

Now I’m just teed off and, yes, jealous as all hell. As he wrote, “Had a day off in Brussels and got [girlfriend] to google where his factory was and rode the 10 or so miles out there. It was a Sunday so, I would have been happy with just a shot of the outside but, when I got there, the door was open, I went in and there was the great man himself, I was totally speechless, just got out my camera and he obliged. Got back outside and cried like a wean.”

Davis, never did like you.
