    Oops, Yes the Norton is running beautifully, so I decided to break my right foot in the garden yesterday just as the weather's picking up nicely for Stafford this weekend.

    Roy,

    Don't feel like the lone ranger; I've got multiple broken bones from a recent bicycle accident. And I'm scheduled for surgery next week, so I won't be riding my Norton any time soon.

    ow! heal quickly guys!

    hey Roy - maybe you could kickstart it with your left foot while your right foot is on the mend :)

    hope you didn't get too much road rash, Jason. Lycra doesn't offer much crash protection.

    Thanks for the get well,
    it's not the broken foot, but the manner of breakage. A bicycle smash has credibility (although I don't look good in lycra) A parachute jump for charity or scoring the winning goal for Burnley in the cup final against Blackburn Rovers would have been 'honourable' . BUT trippin over 'Thomas' the cooking fat in the garden is a personal disgrace.

    Chin up Roy,

    You could always fit an electric start while pondering your broken foot and the cat sounds like it would make good crab pot bait.

    Roy,

    Burnley to beat Blackburn in a cup final! That wouldn't just be honourable that would be bordering on a miracle.
