... you're riding your bike in town, stopped at lights in busy weekend traffic and your clutch cable snaps. FARK!! What a Face Had to push the bugger off the road (in gear - not easy, so enlist help of nearby pedestrians), find neutral, crash start the bugger, sneak into side streets until lights turned green and then blast on through the traffic before they changed to red again. Was an interesting game!

That sucks. I stalled at some lights today with traffic behind, no electric start at the mo so had to push it to the side to kick start it then when I went to head home it bit back kick starting in the rain - foot slipped and now theres a nice gory scrap up my shim - fark it hurt, didn't want to look until I got home...that'll learn me Suspect
