Beware!!!! the 1098 bites

Hiya all,

Was out for a spin on Sunday here in Ireland (in between rain showers), there was my 1098S and two 1098 (standard).

Had a great rideout with the lads, said my goodbyes, and pissed off home. The other two guys decided to go back through the Wicklow Gap (popular sunday biker road outside of Dublin). Mark put his through a hedge, minimal damage. Gary (the other lad) helped him back on his way. Then Gary, on his way home, binned his 1098 on a roundabout. The Gap has so far claimed 3 1098 and 1 1098S so far this year. Couldn't help having a chuckle at them both. They are both ok, although Mark (the hedge) picked up a glass bottle to his neck, he has some stiches, He also bounced his shoulder off a rock wall, so that's a bit sore.

Cheers,

Reggie

Hi P A N,

I'm based in Dublin, but live in county Wicklow (south Dublin), Let me know what you're up to as there is a lot to see and do over here, drinking included.

Cheers,
Reggie

Hi Fish,

Cheers for the package mate, I'll post some pics soon of the stickers adorning a ZX14 killer that I built a few months ago. This thing is so small my little girl could through a leg over it.

I am in the process of explaining to the wife that just because the hat fits her to, it does not mean it's hers. woman.......what can ya do. you let them off the chain at the sink for a moment and they think they run the place... shit she coming..

Cheers again

Reggie
