I, through your paper, would like to thank the two guys who helped me out an hour ago.
I had parked my 1,000cc motorbike in the passageway between my flat and next door.
The rain overnight had made the passageway very slippery (due to the moss) so when I took the bike off the sidestand the wheels slid up against my neighbour’s wall - ie the bike was at 45 degrees and it weighs 260kg - I had to shout ‘if anyone’s passing, please help’.
Two guys turned up, they helped right my bike and then went.
I intended to offer them a drink as a thank you, but they had gone - so, thank you to them.
I could have a severely damaged motorbike if it hadn’t been for their help.
