EV5 – 2 Months

My handlebars arrived but they were motorcycle-type number plates (registration P26 something). Despite the contents of the package, the bike had been converted to an “upright” style, but looked like a Winnebago complete with roof canopy and shed at the back. The forks were very angular and had bright orange shifters…. And I was trying it out in what felt like the mid-West of the States. Was that woman a policewoman?

They say write down your dreams when you wake up otherwise you’ll forget them, no matter how vivid they were. Bleary-eyed, that’s what I’m doing but it was no dream, it was a nightmare! The picture is the nearest thing the Internet can throw up that comes anywhere near to the monster that I just saw.

What a way to celebrate the fact that I set off to Italy in exactly two months…. White rabbits? I just said it for good luck and to negate the dream.

  1. Wearing bright red and lycra makes you invisible to drivers of other vehicles, Period.
    On my 11.5 mile commute today in Cumbria (not exactly the big smoke) I have been apexed at 70mph by a red astra, Had a passat estate do an emergency brake when he realised he was either going to hit a traffic island or me. and had a silver van run out of room at a set of traffic lights forcing me towards the kerb. Bloody murder. I wish I had a helmet cam. Arrrrgh.

What do you think?
