I'll tell you a story, then ....

Years and years ago, when I was but a lad, six of us went out forra raaaaide on t'baaaaikes, laaaaike. We went to Southport and, on the way back, down t'Rainford By-Pass, we turned left towards Crank, just before the Lancs..
Flying along that country lane, past the Red Cat, bottom of the hill, left towards Billinge Hill.
Anyroadup, I'm first on GT550. Then Alan on RD400 and a couple more on RD250s, Stezzer was miles behind on his RD250.
We pulled up, opposite that farm, just before that little bridge. Suddenly, Stezzer shot past us all, full whack. Didn't know about the right hand bend just after the bridge!
He hit the bridge as quick as lager turns to piss. Took off and ended up in that potato field at the other side!
Had to wait an hour or so, before he recovered and rode slowly home.

And the moral of the story is, take care if you don't know what's at the other side!

Here it is!
