fell off one once in mallorca and cost me 200 euros to fix/ get my passport back!
not my cup of tea!
Thing is with riding a bike is that you have ride them with respect, especially when you first start. You pass your test and you really don't know how to ride, and it takes bloody ages to ride properly... I haven't put myself into too many positions which has made my arse clench. Only had a couple moments, but I'm fairly cautious.
Last year took the r1 down to dusseldorf germany, then got the train to Italy, then rode across southern France, monaco, then upto Spain, over 1800 miles in 12 days, all with my brother and a mate, was great fun!
57 A3 2.0 TDI Sportback (140)
i've mates into bikes, dad has a bike, uncles have bikes, but me no bike.
every year i say il do my test but i never do, expensive and i end up putting the money into something else.
but i WILL do it one day and i WILL own the ducati 916 my uncle had before he died. we know the guy who has it.
did not mean the dislike sportstractor dude! i do appologise!
Haha have another chez you hater
Iv always thought I'd like a bike, but was never aloud one
my bro had a major accident years ago. And mum put a ban on them instantly.
I remember going to get a Suzuki DT 125 for Xmas with my dad when I was 17, picked it out, took it for a spin around the carpark, dad put the deposit down and I was Megga excited. Only to find out mum put the kibosh on it the day after was gutted.
See loads of bikers over Rivinton when I take the car for a spin after a scrub, Some of em Look amazing going through the bomb hole then comming out with the left knee down. Impressive to watch
Another day in work.
Had a bit of a barny with the misses last night for not big reason.
Told I need to get the car in to the garage to the AC drained get a belt replaced cause its starting to fray, I also think its rubbing on a pully so need to get that looked at.
She then went off on one about how much money I spend on the car and how its in the garage every week.
Last time it was in the garage was about a month ago for a wheel bearing that let go.
O well, its a new day. lets see what happens. lol
My mum and dad encouraged me to get a motorbike.
I asked and they was like, yeah sure. If you crash just make sure you get back on and ride it.
My first bad crash was really bad, broke the bike, broke my helmet, gloves, trousers, jackets, shoes and blood everywhere. Phoned my dad and explained what happened.
He asked me two questions,
Dad: Can you walk?
Dad: Is the bike rideable?
Me: Yes buts going to be hard.
Dad: I'll see you when you get home.
Bit heartless but all the other crashed I walked away from meant I just got back on to the bike, rode home, fixed the bike, cleaned my self and went back out again.
ha ha! i like the cut of your old mans jib scott!
classic bit of parenting there lol!
