The Shovel Trouble story.
At The drags we all come back to the bonfire pissed up on Friday night.
All the bikes are covered in dew and cold dampness.
Someone has the bright idea to have a drunken kickstart contest (Benny).
Soon we all get bored with this and the bike is left until the next morning.
Saturday the bike starts and we head off into town.
Stop for fuel in Stratford after a hot run in traffic through the town.
Restart the bike and it kicks back unspent gases from the engine and exhaust.
Kicker flicks back hard and gets caught in the upright position. GAME OVER.
Thanks to Sean and Deak for getting me back to the site. I take it all apart and the kicker cog is mashed. Hauled it home on Sunday and by this weekend and £28 I will be on the road again. Moral of the story, do not let a bunch of “just add beer” experts near your bike after they have had a skinfull!
Thanks for the photos Flamesey
