Advanced Driving Skills
Today did not get
off to a great start.
I was on my way Granny's to work on my bike. I had loads of other
things going through my head and, having put some stuff in the
top box, started the engine. I waited for a gap in the traffic
and rolled the throttle on to ride straight off the pavement onto
I didn't get very far. I'd forgotten to remove the padlock securing
the bike to a lamp post. I got about five feet before coming to
a rather abrupt halt and falling off. As is usual in this situation
I leapt up to see if anyone was watching.
