Worked in a factory just before I left school. Thought I'd go and wring the Fizzys neck at lunchtime. All the factory gurls and wimmen sitting on the wall as I stroll over to the"hog" The kickstart had worn off all teh splines and i had to bump start it. Now at the time, we had a craze of pulling the outer cable out of the throttle cable housing thingy. This meant the throttle was jammed open. Someone had kindly rigged my bike this day. So here goes Mr Cool. I push teh bike a couple of yards and jump onto it sidesaddle. Feckin thing started and lurched forward. I fell right over the other side of it, and teh bike fecked off into teh cycle shed and wrote off 2 cycles. Boy did I feel and look a compleate twat!!

That's got to be one of the funniest stories i've ever heard, i can just see ya now......... Riding my RD125 one evening i saw a BMW RGS up ahead and had to overtake, he was at the back of a line of 6 cars.So i guns the LC and goes for it, only to realise the 4 wheeldrive and horsebox at the front of the queue is turning right(into a farm lane that i hadn't noticed)I braked, realised i wasn't going to stop and braked a bit harder losing the front end, slid down the road(losing one of my trainers in the process) and went straight under the trailer. One of the trailer wheels went over my head putting rubber marks on my lid and i was dragged a little way along by the trailer, the bottom of it was about an inch from my face!Farmer Palmer get's out an says "Oh my God, he's dead!" Result was broken collar bone plus lot's of road rash due to the Levis and Kappa jacket, oh and the RD got squashed too!
