Tis Christmas Morning

December 25, 2009

Tis Christmas morning and it’s time to open the Christmas pressies under the tree.. woohoo!!!!

There is this rather strange shaped gift for me from my OH and when I open it it has this inside it…

Christmas Prezzie.. A Voodoo Doll!

When I turn it over it has this on the back of it..

Hmmmm... A Key?!?

And I’m sat there thinking “huh??”

My OH then tells me it’s the key to my new bike and my chin hits the floor..

My chin goes through the floor when he explains it belongs to this bike!!!!

My Christmas Prezzie.. A 1995 Fireblade!!!!

Now it takes a lot for me to be speechless (as people who know me will testify to) but this morning I was and still am!  I’m in total shock!  I never thought I would get something like this for Christmas and I can’t believe how lucky I am…


Saying “Thank you”  just doesn’t seem enough when you recieve a gift like this, does it?

Happy Christmas everyone 🙂

Happy Christmas Everyone..

I Had An Accident Today :-(

December 2, 2009

I decided this morning that the worst sound in the world is hearing your baby grinding up the road.. 😦

I was on my way to work this morning, I pulled up at a roundabout and stopped to wait for a gap in the traffic. I inched forward a tad to bring me closer to the white lines and stopped again as there was still traffic coming round the roundabout…… and the next thing I know I’m shooting out on to the roundabout and and me and my bike are going down!

The car behind me thought I was going out on to the roundabout (inspite of the traffic coming round it!!!) and drove into my rear wheel and propelled me out into the traffic!!!! As I was going down I was thinking “Feck, I hope nothing hits me” and luckily nothing did.

A lady dived out of her car and told me not to move and called the police and the ambulance but a passing ambulance stopped too.. They checked me all over and I’m fine-ish.. I reckon my knee is gonna develop some lovely bruises and I think I’ve pulled a muscle in my back but other than that was more shaken up than anything..

Initial reaction was “IS MY BIKE OK?????????” “WHERE’S MY BIKE?????”

Damage to my baby seems to be a bent rear brake lever, and possibly the mounting for it (need to check her over properly).. The crash bung on that side looks a tad knackered but protected my fairings from everything but a few extra scrapes.. And part of the engine casing is worn away at the bottom…

Both me and my baby came away relatively unscathed thankfully.  The police are looking at charging the other driver with driving without due care and attention, and I’ll be putting in a claim for a new crash helmet for starters..
