Almost as cool as Legend's Motoworld debacle
Ahhhh, Iíve just had the funniest journey into work. Thought I would ride my scrambler into work since it is dress down day and it is always a little troublesome to start and I tend to break into a sweat. As thought, it was an absolute bitch to start and about 15 minutes of exercise kick starting it, it eventually was running.
As I came into the CBD it stalled, right in the middle of a busy intersection and the lights were just about to go green, of course it didnít start and about 3 cycles of lights later I was getting a little hot and bothered. Okay picture this, me right in the middle of the intersection swearing and cursing on my tod, something would not have looked right viewed from a distance.
I eventually put the side stand down and was standing on both pegs kick starting it, it suddenly fired and I accidentally dropped the clutch which of course made it roll forward and off the side stand, next thing I know Iím spread-eagled in the middle of this intersection with my bike on its side (not running) and all these people running over to help me. I didnít get up straight away since I was trying to collect my thoughts and calm myself. All these people were incredibly worried. I thought they were coming over to have a good laugh at me.
Anyway once I had finally got myself together and got it started I saw the funny side quite quickly.
