    on way to mot centre - imagine my f**king smile as i realised bike was trying to go its own way due to the back tyre - with bugger all wear on it had found itself a massive bloody split. cue me pushing the bike i keep telling everyone is amazingly light 3 miles home (didn’t feel light by the end).

    That’s a bugger, I guess a split rather than just a puncture means there’s no chance of repairing it. ☹️

    I took a bike for a MOT once, punctured the tyre on the forecourt, made it an expensive MOT :(

    3mile push, bless you, AA!

    Balls ☹️ - sounds like you need a ride on the bike to make the world a better place. Going for a ride on the bike always makes the world a better place, even with the lurgie

    im getting right wound up by it all tbh :D
    went down a one way street with cars parked either side, got to the end of the street and i was positioned left to turn right, think i was too focussed on the sat nav i was attempting to read/follow
    still seemed beyond pedantic to me, no one around, no one was going to turn up the one way street and there was no one behind me, suppose its because it looked like i didnt know i was in a one way road
    previous time i failed for observation at a mini roundabout, WVM came round without indicating and i braked over the white line :rolleyes:
    first time was all my fault, complete brain fart, nearly wrote the motor off

    I would've thought that the positioning on the one way street would've just been a minor mark? Yeah you should pull to the right hand side if turning right but seems a bit harsh to me. Come up north a bit and take your test, piece of piss up here :D

    Proper multi talented me, should've become a teacher although my loathing of children probably wouldn't help me :D
