Agreed last night to another bimble to the Tropicana beach resort, 90km west of Lagos. Can promise white sand beach bar, palm trees, soft breeze from the Atlantic. bar b q prawns / calamari and crab, a;; freshly caught in the ocean.
Meeting at OldBikers place 10am for a fresh coffee, 10.30 departure.
Promise to take some pics this time
Back in time for the footie to watch the mighty super eagles v Cote D’ivoire quarter final in the African Nations Cup. Last time I watched a live knockout game in the African Nations Cup at a large venue - I had to leave at half time as the police were shooting guns to “calm people” after whipping them hadn’t worked…so I might opt for a small bar.
Full tanks and empty bladders on departure.
i love these virtual rideouts!
i’ll get the dog walked and meet you there in 45 minutes
I can’t make it till after lunch. Is there a middle meet point?
I’m already nearby, what’s your eta and I meet up and ride back
Did you get a new body armour suit ? pics
Slipper - New body armour sorted…but the phone on the camera proved beyond me. I actually took about 12 photos - but kept getting “memory full” warnings and seemingly nothing was saved bar two rubbish ones.
Lad I went with was videoing me on the ride home though - so possible I might be able to post up some of that soonish. Will have to sort phone out before next week…
Forgot to mention the bike was over heating (lots of smoke / steam out of the radiator at one point) - twice it wouldn’t start - was running out of petrol - 4th garage had some fuel…radiator cap won’t come off to check the water. But apart from that - all was good :crazy:
Wow. We do like a bit of drama
Roll on the next one!
Mrs J is becoming less inclined to run off to Lagos after our imminent separation due in no small part to the low quality of regional rideouts.:crying:
I love your ride outs sounds like so much fun.
But from what I hear from my friend Lagos and holiday are not to be used in the same sentence. (Who’s homeland it is)
The super Eagles are now through to the Semi Finals - and have a real prospect of a Nigeria v Ghana showdown final next weekend. If that happens - it’s going to be fugging mental Will so have to find a suitable bar to watch. I know one exTV presenter has a bar in Surelere - but to get there I have to drive right past the place (National stadium) where the whipping and gun shots were needed last time :w00t:
Thing is, if they win - there will be no wahala - but lose - and all hell will break loose…
Cor it does exist - we thought you were making it all up at one point - we might have to pop down one Sunday x
For sure…beach bar, fresh sea food, sea breeze, cold drinks, peace and quiet. Then back to Lagos to watch the footie - what more could you want on a Sunday afternoon?
Beats camping in the snow at the Elephant thingy
Not sure about that Nick - at least the “elephant thingy” didn’t include any football:)
