Woohoo!
« on: December 28, 2013, 11:14:11 AM »
I've been bikeless now for a year, what with the Trophy being written off and no permanent employment. But a friend, who has busted his wrist, has offered me the loan of his VFR750, vintage 1991.

As of next weekend, I'm back on two wheels.  :)

Woohoo, indeed! :chili:

That's great news, Papa. The loan, not the bone breaking (get well soon, Papa's friend - but not too soon :bigsmile: ).
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.
