Bloody hell Andy - couldn't have been much worse if a hand grenade had gone off in there confuse

Really sorry to hear of the accident and hope you have a relatively pain-free and quick(ish) recovery mate....

Brian

PS I hope you haven't damaged that pretty TTR wink

PPS Photo below taken on Simms Hill - our ex-DTRFG chairman somehow managed to fire his Yam well up into the hedge - not sure how he did it but there you go - maybe make you feel a teency bit better....

I feel ashamed that I didn't even ask the guys how my bike was. Bloody useless. I'll find out I guess when Steve gets it back to me. Thanks Steve.
