A few more miles and he would have cooked the engine too! Always remember to tighten the bung on the engine after you change the oil

You said guy.

When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are stupid

Had a similar thing happen in my Jag the other day. I was visiting friends, who live down a rugged track of a driveway, when a sharp rock holed my oil filter. Luckily I didn't go far either, & could smell the oil burning off the exhaust, as I got out of the car. So I was onto it straight away, & didn't do any damage. Though the Jag was stuck there for a few days, until I got a replacement filter & oil. But it could have been catastrophic if I'd holed the filter on the way out. & yes, I'll never take my Jag down a driveway like that again.

That's happened to me, first incident on my new bike. I did not escape.
