The track instructor told me to f*** off when I threatened to slap him afterwards. He was lucky I had broken my arm, otherwise I would have given him a kicking. I tried to claim for my bike on my fully comprehensive insurance, but they told me to forget it, as they reckon I wasn’t covered. Who can I sue? I’m well out of pocket.


You sir, are an oxygen thief and a drain on the planet’s resources. From what you have said, there is no one to blame for falling off other than you. Don’t go on a track day if you don’t want to take the risk of falling off. It’s a bit like a boxer moaning he got broken nose after fighting in the ring. As for insurance, if you haven’t insured the risk of taking your bike on a track then you weren’t covered when it went belly up. Suck it up.
