    Is Platy due the win, or just for "services to binning"?

    It was in Foreign. And I think it's fairly well-documented that "Foreign
    doesn't count".

    One rule, surely?

    He gets my vote, but he should really be denied it on a technicality -
    he allowed the stricken vehicle to fall into enemy hands.

    I don't remember that. But then there's a lot I don't remember.

    FWIW I think the reason for binning (snow on visor and no free hand to
    wipe it off) is a mark in his favour.

    I doubt if he'll accept it for last weekends efforts.

    It's supposed to be first *bin* of the year, not first fell over in a
    bit of snow. Wait until someone gives it a full go or you'll get
    people pushing bikes off their sidestands so they can win it.

    Good point. It wasn't really a bin.

    Yea, but your bikes have got form for committing seppuku without you
    even being near them .. ;)

    From skimming certain bits, I'd (mis)understood that he'd ridden it
    into Armco at speed and sheared footrests, and all sorts.

    You have to admire his persistence, if nothing else.

    Very low speed, crunched a bit of plastic. The sheared footrest was last
    There is much about me to admire.

    I think you over-estimate the "prestige" of this award.

    Especially as the rules require damage to the rider as well as the bike.

    Doesn't injured pride count?

    Surely the Monotreme has but little pride left to injure?

    I don't remember his passenger mentioning the size of his dick in
    conversation, it was mostly about how her life was worth more than the
    excitement of being ridden by Platy.

    Recent back-of-a-fag-packet calculations have made it clear that the poor
    little VFR was overloaded by about 100lbs. I suspect this was because I
    failed to include the Mighty Sword in my weight-and-balance figures.

    Ah. And - obviously - in moments of intense excitement, your CofG could
    move to a dangerously forward position.

    Well, I think we all learned an important lesson here.
