Some of you might be aware that I live in the English countryside. The roads around here are quite narrow. I went out on the Valkyrie yesterday and was on a hedge lined country road that rises up slightly and then has a long sweeping left hand bend, which is fantastic when you can open the old girl up. About a 1/4 mile before this bend, my Valk suddenly died and I came to a stop. As soon as I pressed the starter button she fired back into life. How strange I thought. Just before I got to the bend an 18 wheeler came chugging around towards me at about 40mph, taking up the whole road. If my Valk hadn't of cut out I would have probably been a mascot on the front of that truck. The reason it cut out was a dodgy connection on the alarm which is sorted now. I'm one lucky guy.
