Had a bit of an "oops" moment and ran up the rear of a Nissan (probably about all they are good for...) - nobody was hurt, the dogs didn't care, now waiting on the tow truck. Flaming rain - should be banned during daylight hours.

BUGGER (sorry for shouting)

Now I will be commuting on "Black Betty" for a bit - rain, hail or shine. Don't worry, it's 41 km the shortest way - hmmm which way on Monday?

Bugger !!!!!
Sounds like it could have been worse, what if you were on your bike ?
Good to hear no injuries, only some bent pride.
We all need to keep 'extra' distance in the wet !!!!
Keep smilin.

On top of all that, I have to replace the number plate light on the Sport. I can just see it going through this process...

- Designer 1: "We need to hide the screws for the number plate light"
- Designer 2: "Yeah, good for the looks" "Hey mechanic, how long should it take to change the number plate light?"
- Mechanic: "Less than 1 minute"

Some (not) thought went into this

- Designer 1: "Got it - the poor fuckers will have to remove the carrier for the rear rack; then the plastic trim around the arse of the bike (5 a side); then remove the tail light (2 screws); and only then the three screws that hold the tail guard in place; then the two screws that hold the tail light into the guard. Then and only then will you find the bulb can be just pulled out of its holder - simple"


Some time later...
- Mechanic: "What prick decided to make it this so hard to change a light bulb? Now the importer will not pay me the three hours it took. Instead they want to give me credits for 5 minutes work. WTF?"

Sad part is I like my job but the culture is one of active repression (all done in the nicest possible way) and glass ceilings.
