    Well that's certainly not the best parking method! I would like to have been along, but we are trying to get some building progress done while the weather is good. Very conflicting emotions :turkish Go riding or work on the house....

    Good RR boys.

    Steve I'm sure you held it togther pretty well with the boys but I bet you shed a tear inside to see Gus upside down. I just see $$$$$$ in my head when my bike does some gymnastics.

    Gus was built to survive drops. I'm pretty pragmatic about that. I prefer not to, but know that he's pretty heavy, & it'll happen from time too time. As long as I can walk away fairly unscathed, then it's just part of the day.

    The starter dying was a pain, but we managed a work around, & I have a spare. And I'm happy I can get the original fixed.

    The most distressing thing (for me) about this incident was needing assistance to recover Gus from the gully. I prefer to be somewhat self reliant, & not to bugger up other peoples day sorting out my issues.

    I might have carried a small concussion away from that incident...
