The Crashed Slash
For The SBR CID who have knocked twice now, I am afraid all I can tell you is ...I was down the Bingo governor.....didn't see nought.......
However my statement, if pressed further and you can provide adequate protection, will be as follows:
I was proceeding in Southerly direction at the junction of Turn One and Pit Exit at approximately 10:42 hrs on the morning of the accident, when I saw a man acting suspiciously in the gravel trap a few metres to the left of me.
The man was dresssed in blue leather, bald and had a mean yet slightly devious look about him. Like he sold insurance or something. As this was somewhat unusual occurance, I decided to stop my vehicle and parked it to one side of the pit lane on the soft mud and take a closer look.
At first the man laid still holding his arms up to the sky shaking his fists angrily muttering obscenties but as he became aware of my presence he seemed to scury behind the fallen motorcycle and keep perfectly still and quiet. It was as if the man intended not to be seen. I became more suspicious when I noticed the vehicle was cleverly disguised in clumps of grass and small mounds of gravel to make it blend in with its surroundings.
I'm not sure what happened next as my own vehicle's side stand was plunging through the soft mud like a knife throigh butter and I was forced to save my own bike from a similar fate.
By the time I got back to the scene, the man was wrestling with the dazed vehicle and it was quite apparent he was holding the bike against its will which had clearly been through some rough ordeal in the hands of this ruthless man and wanted to stay put.
He man handled the machine over to where I was standing and told me he knew where I lived, no one needed to know about this, he was quite 'handy' if I knew what he meant , I needed to purchase a couple of life assurance policies, and if I went to the authorities or mentioned the word 'low-side' in his presence the same thing would happen to me as it did The Commercial Union Group!
