    Spoke to Sue today, she can't have the operation until later next week when the infection to the wound has been sorted! God know's what it would have been like had she still been in that rat infested hospital here in Abbottabad

    I've found a freight company, cheers Joe (The Celt) DVS look like coming up trumps. Just need to get the bikes to Islamabad on Monday and we're sorted.

    No bier forthcoming yet Bill (Fanum) even though promised

    Thanks again guys

    Fair play to the guy and his family for visiting Sue in hospital. Can't have been easy for them, forgivness, understanding and parting on good terms is always best in the long run

    I'm amazed in a way that Sue feels a sense of failure - I think if Pakistan had have been your planned final destination she would have been very proud of her achievement.

    Just seen this Micky -

    I'd have suggested James Cargo - and it's worth keeping in mind should things go awry with shipping. I really hope you don't get any more grief though.

    If there's anything I can do...

    hey Micky - it's me

    hello lover boy sorry to leave you in the mire - I know how you hate paperwork.

    just left Kingston hospital, on my way back to Barnsley, maybe they operate next week - I brought back too many Asian germs to do anything yet.
    Phone charger lost - the only way I have to tell you how much I love you is via the rest of the tossers.......

    now did you ever think about the Andes? you'll be ace at shipping bikes !!!!

    Hey darlin' .... loves you too

    I don't have a phone charger here in down town Islamabad, so we'll just have to continue our love life in front of all these tossers eh

    Glad to hear that your heading north, hope the journey is better than the taxi ride from Abbottabad to Islamabad airport that night

    Hey Ian ... that likkle TTR of yours is a gem, it faired better than Sue in the accident.. Not a mark on it. A slight twist of the forks in the yokes was soon sorted. It suits Sue down to the ground (pun intended) they're both 'likkle crackers'. I went down too ... and not a mark on the 800 neither. Incredible really.

    I've got two carnets here in Islamabad ... both bikes are stamped out of Pakistan, they're on their way home, albeit at a cost of about four grand total.

    I hope to be on the plane outa here Thursday afternoon

    Thanks for all the interest and well wishes folks

    Now then Gracie, for all the heartache you've caused me I'm gonna spank your ass when we next on our own

    This is better than Coronation Street eh

    But nothing could be further from the truth, she's a sixty year old 5'2" lady of steel with 'tough' written through to the core. She rode 7,500 miles overland to northern Pakistan, over some terrible roads, and no roads, before the prat took her out. Even Rossi couldn't have got out of that one.... I was yards behind and I still hit the fecker

    She even did it on a 250cc 'bike She even did it with me

    A mission failed!
    Nothing could be further from the truth Micky as you've said.
    She's achieved much more than most folk and the accident is the risk we all run.
