It had to happen, I let my ambitions over ride my capabilities, my mind was making promises my body couldn't keep.
It was embarrasing...
i will let the pics explain themselves...
All was well entering, i was getting set for a classic knee down on my new YammaOrca. I knew my new ride was slippery, i was about to find out just how slippery!
It was about at this point things started to go wrong.
My grip failed me, i knew it was just a matter of time...
in a desperate last minute move, i tried a hand and knee manoeuvre, reminiscent of Agostini at his peak.
Too late, it was a massive crash and burn, sadly now in the Triumph paddock I shall henceforth be known as a chucker.
For all those of you who don't ATGATT, i escaped this unharmed, and have only my gear to thank.
Lucky there was a pro photographer there to catch all this, Pictures courtesy of MCBS (Motorcycle ********) ace photographer DWR.
It's a good way for you to wind down the adventure you've had here Denis and I'm glad to see it. Great you have Britt to help you re-enter your old world as well. You really had a chance to let loose and get Yer Ya-ya's Out on that Bonnie. You're one lucky SOB and we're all a bit jealous of that, that's why we've taken to you so much (had nothing to do with your personality)
Relax, drink wine instead of Scotch. Look at the sky. You deserve it mate.
As old as that bike is and as hard as you have ridden it, have you ever thought the front wheel bearings might be missing? Just a thought sir.
