    I thought the doctor called my name at the surgery so I stepped into his room and sat down.
    He hadn't called my name at all and he wasn't the doctor I was meant to see.

    "No worries...what's the problem? What bike are you riding?" "Africa Twin" I say. "how about you?"

    He tells me that he's got a Dominator.

    I say I've got one too that I'm going to sell.

    He says "I'll buy it"..."how much do you want?"

    True to his word, he came here after work at @ 7.00pm and left a deposit.

    The universe works in mysterious ways :-)

    Well done.
    Not too often you find a murderbike rider in the medical fraternity.
    Most are dead set against our hobby.

    I had a surgeon once tell he loves motorcyclists, especially ones in full leathers.

    Say the leathers hold all the squishy parts in......true story.

    My optometrist rides a gs1200.
    I told him that's a bit short sighted.

    Straight up: I used to be sent to a physio called Angela Butcher...
    Now I know why those in the profession are called Physio-the-rapist ...

    The doc that did an arthroscope on my knee rides a Ducati and he’s an older fella.
    Must be double jointed or something.

    Doctor's foreign accent combined with my deaf left ear :tough Brian can sound very much like Wayne :gerg

    I still wonder what Brian who was sitting adjacent to me and who had been there before me must've thought when I jumped up when his name was called :lol3

    It's bloody annoying when you look at Margaret, call her name, and then Fred stands up and barges through the door. Fred usually learns not to do that after a pap smear.

    Had a Doctor Savage once. Prick gave me only 3 days off compo after a 3 inch Ramset nail was shot thru my left wrist. Was told to go back to work (Kalgoorlie) formwork, light duties. Yeh, like that existed.
    Years later I herd he was delisted for mal practice.

    True story.

    Funny story.
    Today Im leaving office works and a scooter is parked right next to the Camel. I think, prick (bloody scooter riders) could have left a bit more room. Turns out nice guy ex Ducati etc etc. Yarned for 15 minutes. Funny how wrong you can be.
    Im getting used to old fellas admiring the Camel.

    A local Doc still has the morini 350 he raced as a uni student. Parked next to his transalp. He even worked in west oz about 30 years ago. Does that come close to being an old bloke who would admire your camel?

    The skin Doc who checks my moles etc each year has an original Yamaha Super Tenere.

    Folk have been trying to buy it from him for years.... no way will he part with it.

    Good to hear all the exceptions!

    I came to that conclusion about the medical fraternity after a bingle with a 'roo that left my knee a bit stuffed.
    (thought it was worse for the 'roo & my wife's GS500)
    A charming local physio was into horses & she was the only one I met from ambulance folk onwards who could understand the whole riding buzz.

    Cheers - Gavin
