Luckily as I stood guard with the bike watching the Swans in the Forth & Union Canal help appeared in the form of local good guy Stuart who after asking if he could help set off back to his house and re appeared with tools, connectors and sticky tape. Within minutes we were back on the road again, thanks again Stuart for the help and for reaffirming my belief that there are still nice people in the world.
We were late for the Guzzi meeting but who cares, good to catch up with many of the guys we haven't seen for a long time and now looking forward to the Scottish Guzzi Rally in May at Moniave in Dumfrieshire (honest Russell we will bring Guzzi's)
We took the quick way home with the stupid notion that I'd hurry in case the wire broke again, makes no sense, a bit like rushing in case you run out of petrol. As I often say every journey is an adventure, today proves the point!
|Norton at rest,|
|Our saviour Stuart, thanks again|
|Horses heads perhaps waiting for a bed? These are copies of a new statue by the side of the motorway which are massive and impressive|
