    Just posting this as I barely believe it myself.
    I sold a little Honda lead 100cc scooter today that iv been fixing up for summit to do, anyway the bloke phoned me and asked if I could meet him at the local train station (Pewsey) which I did and up he rocks, looks the scooter over and pays me, we then get chatting (from a good distance apart) and I ask where he’s from, turns out he’s got the train down from Croydon (as in London Croydon) and is going to ride it home using A roads as he’s only got a provisional licence. Works out to about 140 miles...... at 40 mph top speed.
    Now im not sure if he’s a real biker just starting of biker life or an absolute frigging nutcase, but I’m not ashamed to admit I got in my van and buggered of as quick as I could just in case it was the latter!

    now the ex policeman officer in me is curious to (not your problem i know) A-any L plates, B-did he get Insurance, C-did he re-tax it before going on his way as if i was still job i would have no hesitation in tugging such a machine on the basis of my nose twitching.

    so if he did get tugged that nicely restored machine may well be on its way to the crusher by now

    ps yeah i know i'm a killjoy lol
