It has been seven months since my little accident. The fracture clinic has signed me off, the physiotherapist has signed me off.
My new boots, trousers, jacket and helmet arrived a couple of days ago. That only leaves one thing — something to sit on.
I’ve been doing a bit of shopping around, and the insurance is going to sting me, but the best bet looks to be something like a five year old Honda Deauville. Cheap(ish) to insure, capable of large mileage, and reliable. If I can keep that for two or three years, the no-claims will build up and I should be able to think about getting something newer, whether it is more powerful or not.
