Courtesy roller skate

VX52 is at the garage, or if you are reading in America, 'in the shop'.

About a year ago someone drove through BS5 dropping kids off in a minibus. The driver hit my car and damaged the wing and took off the minibus bumper in the process. I was away at work but two neighbours took the number plate and gave statements to my insurance firm. The minibus company flatly denied it and the claim stopped dead. I was a bit hacked off. Many months later, my insurance firm surprised me by saying they would waive my excess and just pick up the repair.

So VX52 is in the shop and I even have a courtesy car for the duration. It's quite fun, just a bit bigger than me, loud and unsubtle, but hey I'm not averse to a free car.

Doughnuts at the local car park and a bit of a burn around BS5 . That's my plan.
