    I thought it looked wrong when I typed it last night but I was in pain,

    Although I've just managed to get down the stairs alright I can't back up
    them. I hope I don't need to go to the toilet in the immediate future.

    I like the whole thing less now.

    False alarm - it was my right toe anyway - it's the new, black, man boob
    I've developed that's on my list of mildly disconcerting. That and I
    can't walk; certainly not without lots of harr-harrrs.

    When I'm feeling less sorry for myself I'll check out the damage.

    Finally - many thanks for the assistance yesterday and last night.

    Probably the best "sidecar crash" tale I've ever heard - and anybody
    who's ridden an outfit has a shedful of them.

    Sorry to hear about the accident, I'll gladly swap you on this point if
    you like though, I've barely been able to get off the f*cking thing for
    the past 2 days.

  5. LOL! with tears streaming down my face.

    I don't think I've ever laughed so much at a post as that one. I have
    this weird image of R Kelly crooning away with an outfit flying through
    the air in the background.

    The reference is there but the chair pushed it into the verge where you
    can't see it.

    Have you ever wondered why these things have so many owners?

    Driven once and then stuck in the garage for 6 months while they line
    up the next unsuspecting victim.

    GWS, mainly so we can get another tale of mishap and woe. It's much
    better than "I was doing 150 and I fell off".

    That was Ged all right. Wouldn't even go NEAR the fucking
    thing as it sat, menacing, in his garage.
    Not me mate! I rode that thing whenever I could.

    Ah. Memories.

    .... riding down the M25 to a bike meet (the sidecar carries
    more beer than a regular bike, and it was full to the brim),
    look in rear view mirror, nothing but big clouds of grey smoke
    as I'd had it pegged open and had managed to totally fog up
    several miles of road. Not a car in sight behind me!
    I hit 50 mph on that trip - on a very long downhill!
    Damn near shit myself it was weaving so much!

    .... riding through town. Some twat tries to tailgate. I nail
    the throttle - bike doesn't accellerate much, but smoke pours
    out and the bastard backs off, as intended.

    That place made me think of Auvache, so I changed the route I used for
    the commute to Warwick..

    Shall we say I've sourced a supplier based in Russia. The question now
    is brush paint or can I be arsed to set up the spraying 'booth'.

    I may go to the Doctors today as I'm still a bit crock.

    What do you reckon my scabby old XS will fetch on eBay in the next month
    or so? http://sweller.dynalias.org/yamahaxs400/

    I need the money to finance my outfit habit.

  19. If it's cleaned up and has an MOT with more than a couple of months to
    run, 375 quid. Maybe 400+.
