***k me Knapdog. Remind me to never ever to go on a ride with you, ever. By the second day there would be some freshly dug earth in a layby somewhere quiet with a shonky old bike pushed down a nearby embankment and me riding away with a smug evil look on my face.

Bogger...Talk about p**s poor planning and execution :lol: :lol: :lol:
:lol: :lol: :lol:

Knapdog, I literally did laugh out loud at that story, then some more when I read Bogger's response.

Priceless! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Got my pocket picked at my first fuel stop and lost all my Euros.
We were on the Metro in Paris in 2002 when the packed train stopped suddenly. I realised that the bloke beside me had his hand in my jacket inside pocket on my wallet.

Quite a painful experience ... ;)

I was beginning to wonder how long it would be before Jim and Ged-ward would make a comment. :P

Mine came with a hint of embarassing recognition.

I expect that a lot of us have a "That didn't turn out as planned" trip or two under our tyres!

^^^ I'm sure.

Also forgot to mention that not one of the petrol staions would accept my card at the pump. "Carte pas accepte" each time.
I phoned my building society up and they didn't know why. Fortunately each time I was able to pay cash at the Caisse hut near each exit.
The autoroute "peage" tolls did accept it.

Talk about being unlucky
Love the clutch lever repair though - I now need a jubilee clip as well as wd40 & duct-tape!
