    Mrs MattX pointed me to the ad, she has been trying for the last 15 years to get me off my bike........I didn't have the guts to tell her I was thinking of selling my current 650 for something a little......quicker.

    Why go for a little Japanese sewing machine like that when you can have a proper big British bike?

    Thats the bit that makes me think it is a mickey take.

    You possibly don't want to show her [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iV--WEUKW58"]YouTube - How lucky is this guy?[/ame] then.

    Only time I have had second thoughts is when a friend suddenly popped up on a forum asking how to play console games one handed with a link to his crash video. That shook me a fair bit.

    Thats quite a famous clip. I have plenty of others similar in my youtube favs !!
    I have over the years had a few accidents [ NONE of them my fault ] - the last bad one was in Sept 2006 when a taxi driver wait for it..... ' Didn't see me ' If it was not for my badly scraped arm and leg I would have decked him. Still the insurance company [ and police ] got him in the end. To55er.
    Stupid thing was I refused to go in the ambulance when it arrived - [ some nice person called one ] - paid for it over the next few days afterwards - mild concussion and all.
    Enjoy the pic, I've got ones of my leg somewhere.....[ not very pretty ]
