Paul might have some as my day came to rather a grinding halt when the gap between the track and the cylinder head reached 0 mm.
One minute I had just passed a Triumph Bonnie, over the bumpy chicane, went to turn in and nek minit...metallic sounds and sliding....

Lucky you didn't grind thru the rocker covers. I assume the usually bumps & bruises, & new scuffs on the leathers, but otherwise fine? What happened?

Bugger, so did you fall because the rockercovers grounded, or were they just collateral damage?

According to the guy on the Triumph I passed on the long sweeping bend before the bumpy 'chicane" ( that everybody straight lined) :

"You passed me went over the bumps, turned in and the head touched down, bike went left and you went right and I went thru the middle"

Fine today, leather and bike need a bit of mending...

Trustme had his GoPro all set up.
I asked him if he had any video and he said " stalled on the start line"

Good, just the usual assortment of aches and pains, out in shed working on Guzzi today, too wet to unload the toasted toaster.

Wheres the pics???

Hey Swarfie, say thanks to your Mum for the frozen soup to take the swelling from my hand.
Goes down a treat with a nice pilsener and Fridays bread rolls

Thats a fair whack of metal you took off, seems a drastic way to remove a bit of weight from the bike though mate.

Good to hear you're all ok, those Boundary Road brews are pretty tasty.
