Every time Mr T switched off
 I had to push start him  >:(

then just as I arrive at the J-Bay turnoff there he stands,
 ignition system blown because he did not put all the lights on  as bike is over charging
Luckily I only had to tow him about 5 k's to his brother's house in J- Bay
660 Tenere towing a 750 Tenere
And that's where I left him  ;D

Better go check my car....

Just passed BradleyS before the tunnel,he went over the top and we went through on our way back from Oasis.
What do you mean, was he standing next to the road again?
Yes we know he went OTT.
Who else in the whole wide world could have had so many punctures over one weekend?
Hope you're home safely Flatleys. :biggrin:

Mr Flatley was gone by the time I went over the mountain. I had a flat in Worcester CBD, can you believe that shit? A M10x60 bolt kicked up by the front tyre went straight through the back. This is my first flat in 18months, thanx for the bad luck Flatley, looks like it is contagious.
