My brother's neighbour is 83 and still rides his 1500 with landing gear. In another 44 years I will be delighted if I can still climb on anything with 2 wheels.

Well done:clapper::clapper::clapper::clapper:

Bri,

we don't know how lucky we are, we don't have to deal withmuch natural phenomenon over here, just the mad fools on the road, who are too blind to see us.

Worst I've ever experienced was a 200 mile ride to Bristol back in the late 70s, 80mph wind, torential rain and watching my mate in front on his wing fighting to keep upright. Mind you, I can also remember a pea soup fog, or two, where visibility was not much further than the handlebars.

hi all,talking of bristol pete,i recently flew down to bristol from newcastle airport on an easyjet flight,i was going to purchase the car i have now as it is a rare model to aquire i had sold the same model earlier that year(2004)and wanted a newwer reg car,any way on the way back on the m25 i saw 4 different accidents,i nearly ended up in one of them myself,the cars infront stopped suddenly i took my eyes off the road for 2 seconds to talk to my passenger looked forward next thing a car is in my path:shock:,no way would i stop in time so i did what my instructor told me many years ago(20 yrs) if your in a skid your out of control the "abs" was working for sure so i took the outside right lane as my escape,the rest is history im talking to you all today?what im saying is dont take any road situation for granted expect the un expected and you cannot go wrong,(hopefully:goofygrin:)bri,sunderland,uk.;)

Ah, the old M25!! We live almost on top of it, but I avoid it like the plague. It's hairy enough in a car, let alone on a bike. Glad to hear you scraped through the drama of your journey on it.
