I'm sorry to read this Mac, although glad Vanstub isn't any worse.

Wish him well from me too,

Chris.

I suppose you've checked if it's been taken to the police pound as one of mine was after an accident.

Well that really is good and bad news, glad the injury isn't too bad but what a shame with the bike, i guess after sitting for all that time the tealeaves couldn't help themselves, b4stards ! I hope your insurance sorts you out quickly.

I'm sure you could have done without that hassle on top of the injuries.

I'm glad to hear you are getting better. I wish you well in a good outcome with your bike,

Chris.
