I seem to remember from the depths of my addled brain that being a stunt
The secret of a long life is knowing when its time to go.

A guy once passed me & another car then cut in front of the next car in line he obviously forgot about his panniers as one caught the car wing and went flying down the road & the poor guy dropped the bike :o
I've to start again now buying & fitting all the bits I had on the previous cb500x!!! :D

I got off the ferry in Rotterdam and just before the passport booth pulled over to sort my gloves and helmet out. Set off and the RHS pannier clipped one of those big plastic A blocks lined up as they weren't using them to separate the lanes. So I wobbled into the line of traffic. Squeaky bum moment I will confess to

It wasn't a stunt Herman, but it was a motorbike journalist on a test ride.
