    1545, phone rings.
    Client: Captain Paul?
    Me: yep.
    Client: can you get to Chile to sort out the holds on this ship of ours?
    Me: no drama. When?
    Client: um, can you be there tomorrow?
    Left me with a total of four hours to get home from the office, pack my case and get to Heathrow.
    I wouldn’t have made it home from the office in time in any car on this earth. Honda CBR 1100 Super Blackbird, I salute you!
    Now I’m on the M25 and have an hour to get to T5.

    So you’re on a Motorbike on the M25 & you’re posting it on here? That’s multitasking to a dangerous limit.

    Not quite. Had to ride home and then pack, change and jump in a taxi.

    If I didn’t take the ‘Bird today, I wouldn’t have made it home in time. I was cutting it fine as it was but they’re digging up the gas main in the main road through Sidcup so it’s temporary traffic lights at the cross roads, one way at a time. Took me ten minutes on the bike. Wouldn’t have done it in less than half an hour n the car.

    I doubt if my grannie was involved.

    Just thought I'd mention I've never been to Sidcup and have no connection with the place (wherever it is). :eusa_whistle:

    I was actually wondering if I’d have made it if I’d been in the big Panzer. I wouldn’t have dared filter on her like I did on the ‘Bird. Both awesome machines in their own right but the ‘Bird is special.
    I wouldn’t be advertising that. Place is a shite hole.
    No, El Greeko.
