How to go as red as your Fireblade

“Nice bike mate,” the voice said as I was about to lift the pump from the holster. “just got it ” I replied. A nice shiny 03 Fireblade in red and black livery. Almost 5000 miles on the clock, pristine.

” Oh F**k” I said following our conversation , having filled it up from empty with Shell’s finest diesel. One phone call to Bennet’s and a full recovery, and 4 hours and 124 quid later I was back on my bike and on my way home. Face as red as my Fireblade.
