  1. Many years ago had a swan clip the handlebar end of my CX500 as I was leant over going from the M3 onto the M25 wobbled a bit but no damage. Hit a baby deer/fox going up Telegraph Hill on the A38 just outside Exeter. Caused a £1000's worth of damage to my month old FJ1200, didn't come off but had a throbbing leg where it hit me then trashed the fairing. Lorry driver behind was amazed I stayed on. At work we regularly clean birds and wildlife off the front of trains they lose a race with, feathers everywhere

    I forgot to add, another good thing with Vango tents, is the bags are a generous size for repacking after the 1st time unlike some other tents that seem to be vacuum packed when you buy them

  7. wonder if i can talk the missus into that for a vows renewal!! Seconded ! Do it, we had a brilliant time and everyone who came including non-bikers enjoyed the day. Caused no end of curtain twitching in our road when all the bikes turned up at our house to pick the missus to take her to the ceremony, much more than a bog standard wedding car would, was gutted I was at my best mans house so missed it. The ride back from the ceremony was great as there was no end of heads turning and people waving, once again you wouldn't get that with a limo which are 'two-a-penny' these days ( and bloo

  9. At my age (50) most weddings we go to are 2nd time around so not so pretentious as the 1st time weddings. I agree that some weddings can be a royal pain in the arse held in posh overpriced venues with mediocre food and crap cheesy disco. Luckily I come from a small family so not too many family do's to worry about. Also working shifts helps with turning down invites. I've never understood the need to wear top hat and tails when you normally live in tracksuit bottoms and t-shirts, basically people trying to be something they aren't and end up stressing out and not enjoying their day, due to th
