The only drama I had on the way home was pulling left off the motorway for fuel, down the slip road into the service station, went to turn a sharp right into the petrol station but my handlebars locked up :shock: and the entrance to the petrol station was denied to me with the MT apparently wanting to fly into some shrubbery in front of me. I put a stop to that nonsense by braking and stopping short.

My bars could move to the left, but try and move them to the right they locked. Upon investigation I found this bolt had unscrewed itself and now fouled the oil filler neck. Could have been nasty :?

Glad to hear you got home safely, with that much luck I hope you play the lottery this weekend! :shock:
Third picture up from the bottom, looks like Minter is either putting a dead MT out of its misery, or administering its last rights. :P
