OK so I'm paranoid - and have succumbed after 60 + years to buying a 'B'. Strangely the only BSA I rode (apart from M20s in the Army), was my very first ride around a field on a Bantam.
Sorry Ken for the misunderstanding it started as a leg pull between me and guess who Robo , The last thing I want is to upset you in any way,  One of my better bikes was a BSA Gold Star BD34 probably old hat these days but at the time a great bike.

Did a similar thing on my XJR 1300 ,pulled up at a T junction, put my right foot down as I stopped ,straight into a pot hole!!!
Over we went arse over apex :mfrlol:
I jumped up (well staggered up) tried to pick up the XJR nearly give myself a hernia just as a nice gentleman on a beemer stopped to assist me, "bloody heavy these " says he laughing
jumps back  on his beemer and shoots off down the road waving .
Never even had the chance to buy him a pint!!

Shumba you haven't upset me, I took it as tongue in tongue in cheek and responded in a similar way! At my age I have a fairly thick skin - although looking at it now it is wrinkly and to be honest is getting thinner.......

 Ken I think at our combined age of 146 we should have it all worked out by now , We of a more mature age group ( oldies) stick together.
 I feel older than ever after saying that. :001:
 I have just checked its a combined age of !50  its worse than I thought
