This IS me (by schwitters)Default

Oh goody, I got to work

A man from SOS Motorcycle Recovery turned up just over an hour after I phoned for assistance - thank goodness I forked out the extra tenner for Home Start when I took out breakdown cover - and gave me a jump start. I then had the choice of riding it around for an hour to charge the battery up or taking it to the bike shop and letting them deal with it. Given that it was pouring with rain and I was already an hour late for work, I picked the latter.

This will also give Ron Compton and pals a chance to fit my new back tyre, of which it turns out my scooter takes one and one only brand and model. This sounds expensive.
