The Police turned up next and PC Taylor was one of the nicest blokes Ive met. He took my details and as he was a fellow biker we chatted about bikes for a bit, right up until John the Suzuki mad second recovery driver arrived to collect my bike and take it to Metropolis in Barnet for me. We also had a really good chat which made the journey go faster. I finally got home just before 19:00, nearly eight hours after I found the bike wouldn't start. What a shitty afternoon.
On a more positive note, I got the new tyre for the Ducati and now I have a nice new MOT. Hopefully that is the end of the drama for this week. Its enough to make your hair fall out
