I've been friends with Lowflyer from Inverness for many years now, we met through Steve T on a run he organized. John happened to be riding an ex Africa Twin of mine! He still owns the bike, a green one. It's heading for the 100k miles now and still going strong.
Well, John turned 60 last week so his lovely wife Carol put the word out through XRV.ORG that there was to be a surprise party for him in Inverness and could his usual riding partners come along.
Steve T contacted me and asked if Fiona and myself would accompany him and his wife to the party, well, me and parties? Drink? We're in!
Nobody mentioned it was fancy dress! So we looked a little out of place,,,, well,,, apart from Steve T, who had a sports jacket from the sixties but I don't think it was intentional! LOL!
John was taken in to the hall shouting "no,,, no,,, no,,,!" They then dressed him up as Freddie Mercury, seventies porn star moustache, the works! Looked amazing!
We progressed to drink,,,, a lot! A bit of grub was had, a mean chili concarne! Then on to the main event! Steve T sneakily put our names down for kareoke! Barsteward! Any way, the pic is a bit dark but you get the jist of it! Me and John sharing a mike and Steve T singing at the back!
We left them all to it and headed home, unfortunately I got embroiled with another mate at around 02.00 and got really drunk,,, as if I wasn't already, (John and myself drank a bottle of single malt in Inverness during the evening!)
I finally got to bed at 06.00 so this is me just surfaced!

A cracking weekend, happy birthday John, you're a great friend and always a hoot at all the events we attend! Until the next time mate, slainte mhath.

Here's a few pics to amuse everyone!

Here's John dressed as Freddie Mercury and me looking like Elton John!




Freddie, one of the guys from Kiss and a seventies porn star are stood at a bar,,,,




Anyone who knows the story about the bear,,,,,,




Steve T, I think he's trying to be Yoko Ono????? Tee hee!




The kareoke,

Ha ha guys, thanks for nice comments. Just back from dropping junior sibling off at Abertay Uni in Dundee, feeling a little tired right now, but having a wee dram from one of the numerous bottles that I now have in my possesion :thumbup:

Steve and Jim, thanks so much for coming through with the girls, meant a lot to me :thumbright: You were right in assuming that I hadn't a scooby what was going on. My lads took me out for for a few pints, then managed to get the taxi driver to drop me off at the village hall ( even he was in on it !!! ) Absolute minter :D


Really enjoyed myself, cracking night although didn't feel too Freddy Mercueresc this morning :happy6:
The boys bought me a ticket to GP in Barcelona next year, so myself and Carol are looking forward to it.

Have to go now, up early in the morn.
Good cake innit ? made by a local girl in town, tasted great as well :thumbright:

Cheers guys :happy7:
