Shhhhhhhh Loose lips sinks ships

lmfao

That WAS top secret information chaps!!

But! I guess I asked for that ha!

Anyways.......As you guys have now broadcast my slightly embarrassing incident, here's a couple of pics for you to gloat over.

One wheel had parted company around a mile or so earlier (Ross recovered it on his way to recover me. lol :o) and the other had clearly gotten all hot n bovered and gooon pop.

I'm sure you'll all agree, twoz a rather lucky escape and could have been a whole lot worse.

P.S.
Soz...couldn't bothered to resize the other pics
