Well if everything goes to plan tomorrow, I should have the FireBlade in the garage, the Ducati in the dealership for repair and some money in my pocket following the sale of the Monster. I've arranged to hire a van tomorrow morning from local van rental firm Wheels www.wheelsltd.com for a very reasonable fee and the plan is the head up to Silverstone, collect my thoroughly busted up Ducati, drive over to Oxford, pick up the FireBlade and bring them both back to Barnet. If I have time, I'll try and arrange a coffee with my mate Neal who lives in Wantage, who always has the ability to make me smile and at a time like this, I will really need it. Cross fingers it all goes to plan.

Nothing gives me the feeling of freedom, even when stuck in a city. In 2010 I became a RoSPA gold rider, but when it comes down to it, I'm Just a normal man, riding his bikes as often as he can.
