accident looking for a place to happen

Not a rant per-se more a GRRRR, yesterday on the bike bubbling along near Mittelere Brücke, just bought me a Wickelfisch swimming bag (now that the season is ending) Baselites will know the corner, there where all traffic and trams and pedestrians and tourists looking for a good photo vie for the same space on the road.
Me as I said bubbling along, trying not to suck kiddies out of their prams into the air-intake, out of the corner of my eye I noticed the tram driver…
A beauty, long black hair and a face to make the pope whine, she was a stunner.
WELL SHE BLOODY STUNNED ME! I forgot to shift down and stalled the bike, in the middle of the curve, bikes without forward motion fall over. I ended up as the attraction of the day, dancing on one foot trying to get the bike back up, at the same time I was being belled most vigorously by the tram coming from over the bridge.
Yes She knew what she had done because as she drove off she was laughing her head off..

I think it's going to be pretty difficult for him to dance on one foot trying to get the bike back up, at the same time taking a picture...

I don't care... if it was worth falling over for it was worth the broken leg to try to get the pic.

no pics = it didn't happen.

Re: accident looking for a place to happen

Why do I keep opening this thread every time it has a new post ? I should know there won't be any pics.
