Feeling an inch shorter, stiff, battered and bruised this morning, phoned up work told them I'd broken my neck and will see them on Monday :lol:

I do not recommend using your head as a brake. Couple of pics from last nights epic ride of nearly 8 miles, night riding at Chicksands is the dogs bollocks! :D :D :D Thanks for the sympathy Neilll when I needed it most :lol:

Not too sure about Thetford on Sunday, I'll see how I feel tomorrow.

Good Times:
Picture the scene....REKIBorter has crashed hard earlier, landing on his head :shock:

The night ends after several circuits in the pitch black, illuminated by a variety of expensive HID/LED/Halogen lights...


A forlorn and crestfallen REKIBorter phones Mrs REKIBorter before he leaves:

REKIBorter: "Hi, do you need anything from Sainsbury's?"
MrsREKIBorter (assumed answer): "No, why?"
REKIBorter: "I need some painkillers" :cry:
MrsREKIBorter (assumed answer): "Really, why?"
REKIBorter: "My head really hurts"
MrsREKIBorter (assumed answer): "Oh, why's that?"
REKIBorter: "I landed on it" :cry:
<<<<Phone call interrupted by Neilll collapsing on the floor laughing out loud, tears streaming down his face>>>>
MrsREKIBorter (assumed answer): "Who was that?"
REKIBorter: "Neill" :evil:
<<<<Neilll still leaning against his car trying to breath and crying with laughter>>>>

Bad Times
Getting out of shape on a loose downhill, getting it wrong on a drop off (Bad Skills :oops: ), somersaulting over the bars and sticking Bar Ends into my ribs :shock: :shock: :shock:
Result=Bruised ribs and sprained wrist (hurts as much today as it did 5 mins after doing it :roll: :roll: )


p.s Before the Bad Karma gags come in, me and REKIBorter both crashed at the same time on the same hill..

No one's mentioned the Spitfire 8) In a cleared area of the woods we stoped and watched a Spitfire performing aerobatics for about 5 minutes, loops and everything, a really awesome sight and sound. As we rode back under the tree canopy it flew right over our heads really low 8) 8) 8)

With regret I am going to have to declare myself 'out' for tomorrow night - My ribs are still as painful as they were after I crashed last week.....not quite as painful as broken ribs (it's ok when I cough/breathe deep) but very painful if I make any sudden movements and is a nightmare trying to sleep :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Dunno if it means there's a small crack or they are just bruised?


I'm really pissed off cos last week was brilliant :roll:
