The run wasn't without problems with the Humber, it kept dropping out of bottom gear. In st. Bees on Sunday morning I took a wrong turning off the route on a steep hill. I realised my mistake so decided to turn round and go back down the hill to where I should have turned. I put the bike into bottom and proceeded to paddle the bike as I tried to turn. I had just got my feet on the bloody pegs when it jumped out of gear and almost instantly lost forward momentum and I couldn't get my feet off the pegs in time to stop me rather inelegantly toppling over and me getting pinned under it with petrol dripping and the engine running.
I recovered quickly and got the bike off the deck quickly and without damage to it.
The main lesson to me was that Hip protection is great stuff but it doesn't pay to have a bloody great bunch of keys in your pocket which just so happened to be between my leg and the protection, result, a great big bruise on my right thigh.
