2 tall guys and a bike

I met up with jonwvara today to collect his PX-10. Itís always a pleasure to meet a C&V forumite in real life! Itís too bad we had to scurry on to our respective activities, I suspect we could have talked for hours. Thanks Jon, great to meet you!

One guy says to the other, "I'm excited to collect your Peugeot."

And the bartender says, "Hey, take your poo outside, Joe! And take your friend with you!"
