I worked with a guy in Weybridge in the 60's. He had just bought a Clubmans Venom and had just run it in. He wanted to get 100mph two up so I offered my service (Pillock) We were approaching Guildford and he was annoyed at only getting 98mph. He shouted for us to both crouch down on the return journey. We got to the first bend and we left the road. I found out later he had tightened the steering damper right down. We went up a grass bank through a barbed wire fence and ended up in a cow field. First thing was I couldn't move my legs and even worse I was I couldn't see so thought I had gone blind. Turned out the barbed wire was wrapped around my legs stopping them moving and the reason I couldn't see was my goggles had not only dropped down but they were also covered in cow shit. My mate ended up with a broken arm and broked Velo. Lucky for us someone saw us leave the road and called an ambulance. To this day I hate being a pillion passenger.
