Hi every one I've just got back about an hour ago from my holiday, in Whitby North Yorkshire. I am intact ... er ... apart from my beast of a bike!! I managed to almost do a wheelie, but I wasn't trying to. I managed to pull my left leg, it's OK, and add a few more scratches to my paint work!! Shit, Bugger, Bollocks! To name but a few words that passed my lips at the time of falling off the bloody thing! I have suffered with a swollen knee for three days prior to the accident. I will get to the point of replying to Spike's blog and replying to the award that she most generously gave me before I went away. I am looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight and having a lovely cup of tea, made by yours' truly! I haven't had time to read all 59 E mails yet. I love getting away from the real world, pigging out, drinking ample booze and falling asleep at any given moment, obviously not whilst on my bike. I can fall of that whilst it's pretty much stationary! I love to listen to the screeching seagulls, but not at 3a.m. The weather was kind on the journey up and nice and sunny on the afternoon of the Wednesday as I arrived. The weather turned nasty for pretty much the remainder of the holiday, apart from Saturday when I went on my bike to Newcastle...Geordie land!! I had an interesting conversation with a local man in the town, I asked for directions and he in his native tongue replied ' ya go down ther'... sorry but I can't remember what else he said, I tried to keep a straight face and concentrate on the details he was giving me, afterwards I thanked him and immediately got lost! The only problem with holidays is, they soon end and we have to return to the real world..... WORK!! ARRGHHHHHHH!!!! I will be back at my boring job on Tuesday, what fun. I haven't written anything since I've been away, I have rested my brain, totally chilled out.. ( rain saw to that ) and had fabulous rides on Black Thunder, the scratches are tiny and all part of a learning process
at of how not to fall of it. Thankfully I wasn't going to fast t the time otherwise I might not be here typing these words to you.
