i hang my head in shame on melbourne cup i was on the beers at lunchtime, so where to leave the bike??? i didn't want to leave it in the multi story carpark overnight so a workmate said i could leave it at his place instead (he rides a scooter). after i dropped the bike off the choice for getting back to the pub was (a) long walk (b) short walk and potential long wait for a bus or (c) go pillion on his scooter i am sorry to say i went pillion. i kept my eyes to the floor and when we got there i jumped off quickly and put some distance between myself and the scooter in case anybody should recognise me. 8-[ incidentally he said i was the worst pillion ever as i was trying to steer for him by leaning before he was.
