As you may remember I broke my leg in June, well the cast came off on Friday and as we had some good weather this morning, thought I'd use the Rod for the commute.
Where to put the stick....?
I wouldn't try this for a long journey but I only have a 6 mile ride.

1st time on the bike since 5th June...may take the long way home :D

You're commuting on the bike? thought you might be using a boat. I used to travel via Monmouth on my way to Newport quite a bit so I can picture the scene around the M5/M50 junction.
Flooding was'nt unusual in Feb, March or even April but mid July? what's going on?

We're keeping an eye on the Severn/Wye & Monnow rivers...they're behaving at the moment in our neck of the woods.

It's a wood walking stick :spank:

Actually I must watch more episodes of "House"....see where he puts his stick when he's on the CBR 600.

I was thinking more literally....wood walking stick...flames...it'll catch fire :angeldev:

diverse...I 've got a pair of aluminium ones (anodised :)) at home...they just wouldn't fit onto the Rod !
I tried putting them into my shotgun slip...still wouldn't fit !

Have you tried to strap it down to the top of the handle bars. :) Don't ask me how I know.

Oh my... that is funny since that's precisely where I got the idea for the flames. His latest walking stick (which he made Wilson buy him) is black with flames!!

Didn't try that....I'll check it out tonight!

The problem with it being down the side...
a) gets too hot
b) have to look down to make sure it's still there
c) catches on the inside of your thigh slightly.

Hopefully only a few more weeks, and what with the current british weather...:-(
