...Someones bound to mark a junction wrongly, or stop to do a helmet up and everyone will mistake it for a left turn...  :016:.....

Thanks for bringing that old chestnut up...had almost forgotten it. Guess I can rely on my T800 buddies to ensure I never do  :001:

It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.

Ha ha, I think I remember seeing the video....and cringing!!  Also remember the "oh sh*t" moment when I realised what I  had inadvertently done.

I fell out with a local group who used to regularly have 40+ riders on a weekend ride out, I always fancied intercepting one of there rides and the wrongly marking a previously unmarked junction just to "f**k them up...it would of been hilarious  :492: :492: :492:

for the record i never did.....but one day perhaps !!!
