I reside right alongside the A59 at Gisburn. Normally quite a busy road, even into early evening. Tonight has been very quiet. No traffic.
The reason being the road section has been closed due to a motorcycle accident about 200 yards from my home.
I was outside on this warm sunny evening, swinging a pitching wedge, trying to make a golf practice ball go in the direction I wanted.
I heard a loud revving of a motorcycle engine, but no crashing noise. Screaming motorcycle engines are pretty normal noises in the Ribble Valley.
A short time later I heard the noise of Police and ambulance sirens approaching. I became aware they were all stopping a short distance from my home.
I spoke with one of the officers I recognised, and was informed a motorcyclist had lost control of his bike whilst attempting an overtake, fallen and collided with a lamp standard, badly injuring both legs.
The accident occurred shortly after 7pm. The road is still closed whilst investigations continue at the scene.

I remembered just in time, the MOT was due today for the Tiger.
A quick phone call to Pendle motorcycles secured a slot for 4pm this afternoon.
I had no reason to worry, all was in order when I last rode her the previous day. But I thought it prudent to check. Just in case.
All working apart from the back brake light micro switch on the front brake lever.
I would need to order one from Triumph, as none in stock at Blackburn.
I'm going to have to attempt a repair. I watched a tutorial on Utube and disassembled the micro switch.
I cleaned the contacts and swilled it out with 3 in 1 before reassembly.
Ignition on. The bloody brake light illuminated before I even touched the brake lever, switching off when the brake was applied!
Take the switch off, disassemble and repeat the clean and reassemble procedure. This time everything works as it should.
MOT passed without problem.
How do these parts know when they will be most required to work before failing at the most inopportune moment?

No. Not that election!
This one.
I've put our bike charity forward in the Calor (my supplier) community fund.
I'm trying to gain 5k towards replacing one of our older fleet bikes.
