That damn scooter.

So riding around the Formula 1 GP circuit on the way to work (how many people can say that?), the scooter stepped out and got up a nice ol' wobble as she went round a corner. i knew straight away what the problem was. On inspection, I was right:

So here's how I was situated. Stuck in the relative middle of nowhere. What to do?

Call Donny and get him to bring Holden's BLOODY MARVELLOUSLY CONVENIENT VE Ute and pick me up:

He's taken the little bugger to Brighton Kawasaki and hey presto it will be solved.

This is only my second ever flat tyre on a motorised bike. Weirdly enough, when Rachel and I went around Australia, we didn't get one flat. 20,000 k's no flats. The scooter? less than 600 k's and we're off for a repair. Don't let this become a pattern.

I'm sorry but I would take the VE ute over the scooter any day.

"...Formula 1 GP circuit on the way to work (how many people can say that?" .... a lot of the workers in Monte Carlo ?

2. ute = utility.
it's good to have a friend when one is in need.

The "Workers" in Monte Carlo?

NO ONE works in Monte Carlo olde cock, in fact living there is proof you've never worked a day in your life...
