    Not forgetting the noun Steve:

    A Tyre: black rubber thing that fits around a wheel.

    A Tire: what you wear.

    We'll get these cousins across the pond schooled yet mate.

    No educated people just bikers. All types of bikers. we ride bikes. Wave at kids wink at the opposite sex's and pray it doesn't rain and we get home safe again. The similarity is we all have a great smile when we ride our bikes.
    Ride Safe

    Nice..right now I am praying it doesn’t snow. I can live with the rain but the snow shuts my riding down. Hope you keep your tyres on the black and not off. See I have already learned how to spell tire. ;-)

    I think I had an ancestor who had a British passport if they had such things in 1635..can I perhaps repatriate or has it been too long? Joe you are a sharp one to know what snow is. Good for you

    Well if you are talking about snow I won't be swapping places with you. You are as good as British already you ride a Triumph once the second favourite bike of America and fast going that way again. What I love about America they support their own first. Secondly you have British heritage. Mate you are there. Think about this lovely sunny island never see rain never see snow. What you waiting for. And don't worry Nursey will give me extra meds today after this mail not that I am a junky or anything.

    For you my Friend I will retract my offensive comment. You are of course a true blue Stares And Stripes Coffee drinking American Hero. Mixed with JD of course. Am I forgiven.

    I don't want to upset my Brother. He's been good to me and searched for bits for me. I will convert all the others.
