I pulled a smartie ....................

I knew I was coming to Europe at some point, so sent my SA to the UK to get swopped for a UK one. Then, went to the SA licensing place for a renewal since mine was now lost. That was last year, during covid. Was a fuck-up of note but I persevered.

Then took the UK license to NL and got that swapped.

And I still have a UK 1 from some years back, that I never threw in the bin.

There was no way in hell I was gonna go through a learners programme. You see them here quite often, riding around slowly on their little bikes, being followed by their teacher on a fully kitted, panniered, top box, GS.

Actually, the oddest thing here is how slow bikers ride on the highways. The limit is 100 and that is what they do. They don't overtake anything. I've a suspicion they've fallen asleep.

Yet on the country roads where I live, a few of them belt it on the weekends. I'm waiting for the day I see one impaled on a tractor's sticky-out-bit.

What's wrong with you?
And, why wait?
Get busy you lazy git, and start fabbing some sticky-out-bits which you can next innocuously drop on the road from your boot!
Take pics eh?
