Artur had popped out for a bit, but kn the meantime I did get to meet the Ducati UK sales rep for the South. He was a nice guy, very smiley and polite. I liked him straight away.
When I wanted to leave, my bike wouldn't start. The starter motor kept firing, but the engine wouldn't turn over. I was looking a bit puzzled when, from the back of the shop, both Artur and Mike came out laughing their heads off. Turns out they had unplugged both my sparkplugs, which even I thought was quite funny. Life is a lot easier when your friends are there to help you out, but also show you the lighter side of things.
