Just how things work out....

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by hornet, Nov 2, 2006.

  1. Yesterday morning I went for a quick tootle up to the Robertson Pie Shop, via Macquarie Pass. Coffee-d, I turned to head home at the same speed when four bikes hoved into view, heading towards the shop. I thought I'd turn round and say hi, just to be sociable.

    The guys were from Sydney, and parked their bikes with the front wheels facing the shop. I parked as us locals do, with the rear to the shop..

    When we came out of the shop one of the guys said, "Look, Paul, you've got a screw in your rear tyre!!"

    I rode quietly down the Pass, and got it fixed.

    But if I hadn't turned around to say Hi to these guys, and the screw had worked its way in a bit further with me riding quickly down the Pass......
