 … After we finished the rebuild my son Jeff clocked up some good miles with

some great road trips.

… But sadly at the end of 2007 while on his way to collage a young girl in a car couldn’t wait for the traffic to move so decided to do a U turn in front of him, Jeff had to drop the bike down on it’s side to save himself from T boning the car – the bike slid into her car & ended up badly damaged but my son walked away with only a small cut to his leg.

… Yes the young girl was done by the police for driving without due care.
