Re: Where's the thread for National?

Some of us aren't very good at understanding the hows and wherefores of posting pictures to the forum, please sir.
I've managed it on a couple of occasions, but it's a process that always leaves me baffled.

Thanks Nun. I've got one original shiny arm and one modern equivalent. I'm aiming for a pair of shiny originals.

Isle of Man - Idea.

This isn't an event at the moment; it's just an idea. A chance remark in Another Place resulted in the thought of an Isle of Man Impmeet, with a drive around the TT track. I've never been to IoM, and have no idea whether or not it's a feasible idea. But.
Erm.
