New Vespa

Latest addition to the family.

Because this happened to the other one...

Yes, Mr G was involved in a nasty accident and knocked off his Vespa on his way home from work. A car coming out of a side street failed to give way and Mr G rode straight into him - only doing 40kph thank goodness or it would have been a lot worse! As it was - 4 broken ribs, broken bones in his hand/wrist and a concussion, a week in hospital, 4 weeks off work and a graduated return to work. He's still a long way from mended; still sleeps a lot, tires easily and is vague (or vaguer than usual). Won't be back at work full time for at least another 4-6 weeks.

The red Vespa was written off but he has bought it back from the insurance company as the engine was rebuilt less than 12mths ago so was worth a lot more to him. He'll transfer it to the new Vespa as, despite all this, he still loves riding and doesn't want to give it up.

Crazy man!!


  1. That's still a pretty serious list of injuries. Thank Goodness it wasn't worse!

  2. Yes Shay, he was pretty lucky really!
