At least it's not parked in the front garden anymore

Today, Mattgreen managed to sell World's Ugliest Motorcycle to some poor, unsuspecting punter off Ebay. Mattgreen had joked in the auction that the bike "looks a treat. If you're legally blind".

Here is the beast:
Hmm. Anyway, Matt had rashly promised to deliver the bike anywhere in a 50 mile radius, but the winning bidder handily lived 100 miles away, so managed to talk Mattgreen (and therefore also me, by proxy) into meeting him halfway.

So off we went, Mattgreen on the bike, me and Izzy in the car. We were meant to be meeting in some hotel car park but we couldn't find it, and it turned out the other guy was lost too and he honked his horn and we both pulled up on a street corner to do the deal. When Matt showed the guy the paperwork, it turned out that the bike's MOT had run out yesterday. Matt was all, "oops! didn't realise!" and I was like "eek! shit! surely he's not going to want it now!" but a fool and his money are soon parted, and the guy did indeed purchase Mattgreen's manky bike and ride off on it.

Mattgreen got in the car, turned to me and said, "Ahh baby. You know you've made it when you've got a suspect bloke handing over cash to you in a dodgy back street, for a bike with a crappy neon yellow paint job and no MOT, in a horrible part of Slough. Stick with me, baby, stick with me"!

It's not THAT ugly.
You know that saying about the camera adding pounds? In this case it's pounds sterling.
