    Any news on the dude on the XT?

    Anyone know what's happened to the fella on the XT who did his leg in? Wondering if he's back home or still in the medical clink

    Well it depends unless you've broken your leg i can't tell you about it

    Anyway if someone who knows him could pass on my best even though he was riding a XT and not a GS I think under the circumstances I'll let it slide. I can't help but think the slightly warm laughing cow cheese I gave him the night before may be partially responsible

    Don't know anything about the rider, but his bike is safely tucked up in my workshop awaiting his return.

    Too late fella, we were already sizing his kit up as he lay on the ground on Salisbury Plain. You can have 3rd dibs on his earplugs.

    Get well soon Ian!

    Paul and Jaq have just been to collect bike and all his gear from my place.

    The rider is awaiting an MRI scan to see if there is any ligament damage otherwise they will just plaster him up and he should be OK.

    Thanks for the update Sid, and well done to you, Jaq and Paul for sorting it

    So true, if it happened on my East Midland ride out you'd have to fashion ya own splint and make your own way home

    Cool. As anyone who's binned it will know you have the "feck me what about the bike moment" at least once or twice.

    Glad to see some decent people are about to help the fella

    Its not often I have a moan but I think it's bang out of order, Oblertone has put the bike on Ebay already with a buy it now of £100




    This is despite the fact that he clearly said, in front of witnesses, £80 would be acceptable

    £100 for a second hand Tenere?
