After riding near two hundred miles it happened less than 10 miles from home at Borough Bridge. Now he’s laid up in hospital with a broken hip and foot. Still he’s on the mend and it could have been worse.
Holy Crap!!!! Martyn this is not good, please pass on my warm regards for Stephens speedy recovery!! I was with you guys through the town until i turned off up the 3088. Even then i did not like the traffic! your right it could of been worse, please keep us posted! and pm me which hospital he's at please! Would like to try and come down, if he is in there for a bit!??

I stand corrected - it was an after market part that failed - along with the seat cowl from last year - my god, must be really bad having to buy all these extras for your machines to make them look nicer than how the designer wanted them too!

So I will, WARREN... by a reliable bike mate - one that's not put together by trained chimpanzee's

Sorry, but after so much ridicule I think I am allowed this one!

Hope you all had a good day, apart from the grass tracking on the roundabout and the remodelling of Ford Fiesta's on the way home. Hopefully I'll be along for the September run - work dependant!
