Looks more like a disposable sandwich / burger container from a fast food joint.
Nah....I still prefer to believe Swifty is a punk time-traveller.

Who's the surprised-looking guy with the big face behind the lass on your right?

A friend I still know online. He was good fun. He'd go into his local shop and ask for banal advertising posters and put them on his bed room ceiling so it would be 'LARD 17P!' etc ..

I think the question was referring to the ghostly reflection in the first photo!

Yes, that's right. "On your right" = our left, as we look at it.

Don't be ridiculous, you'll stand out like a sore thumb there - they all go around barefoot!

it is indeed a cracking bike!

And it is the correct colour for a Kawasaki. Nothing else quite like it.

Fighting over a chip with an old co worker ('Sarge') in Morrison's cafe, picture courtesy of the Mrs. I'm the scruffy one. My old flatmate joked he was going to do a rude photoshop over this one but she told him off. Him and her nearly dated.

Well, I have been reading through, and greatly enjoying this thread.
I'm far too self conscious for a photo op, sorry ladies, you aint missing anything I assure you other than a very fortean face fungus.
I live in Wolverhampton now, started off in Quarry Bank near Dudley in 1963, so you can imagine the accent for yourself.
Worked in school labs and networking until my head exploded in 2001 after a number of stupid decisions led to a bit of a thing. Still recovering from that, thanks (?) sertraline.
Was married in 1990, now separated (never formalised it), with the famous daughter of naked cat fame.
Things that keep me alive another day are music (pretty weird music admittedly), computers and computer games (less and less), comedy that makes me cry laughing, reading (Bryant & May,and the St Marys books head the fiction pile at the moment), hifi at the really cheap end of the spectrum.

I'm a 57 year old failed human, ask me anything.

Wrong track though!

And yes the Black Country and Birmingham are very different accents as I may have expounded on around here some place.
