Just sent this down to New Orleans for the winter. I miss it already, still had the original horse hair saddle

If you are looking for leather ankle straps for your next BBC that don't break the bank, Restoration Hardware had some (p)leather straps on sale for about $10 + tax. Brooks they ain't, but few people could tell the difference.

Here's my batch.

Hopefully other riders can share more, as I didn't quite catch all that  I'd hoped I would. 

Cheers,

Marcus

Fareweel to a' our Scottish fame,
Fareweel our ancient glory;
Fareweel ev'n to the Scottish name,
Sae fam'd in martial story.
Now Sark rins over Solway sands,
An' Tweed rins to the ocean,
To mark where England's province stands-
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation!

What force or guile could not subdue,
Thro' many warlike ages,
Is wrought now by a coward few,
For hireling traitor's wages.
The English steel we could disdain,
Secure in valour's station;
But English gold has been our bane -
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation!

O would, ere I had seen the day
That Treason thus could sell us,
My auld grey head had lien in clay,
Wi' Bruce and loyal Wallace!
But pith and power, till my last hour,
I'll mak this declaration;
We're bought and sold for English gold-
Such a parcel of rogues in a nation!
