Next year it will be 'don't go out on New Year's Day'.
I had a quiet night at home, only 1 drink, as I had a ride scheduled the next day.
All was well until I rode, walking pace, over a speed bump with a big metal bar set along the top of it. It hit the sump plug on the bike, and ripped it out, starting oil gushing everywhere. I managed to get the bike into a safe spot, and there it sits... in a lake of oil, oil all over the rear tyre, 100km from home.
This is also in an area with absolutely zero mobile phone coverage - I had to borrow the phone at the gift shop to try to get hold of someone, anyone, who could help on a holiday. Auto club can't, it's impact not breakdown, insurance is closed. So the bike is still there, it's early on the 2nd, and I'm still trying to get onto the insurance company. Oh, and I'm leaving for an overnight trip in a couple of hours.
The only saving grace to the incident was that the lady I was riding with, who also hit the bar, sustained no damage. Just as well, she's over 3000km from home!
