Unfortunately Charlie has been knocked down by a van...

He seems to be fine. And luckily it was his work scooter so all is good. Unfortunately his gear is obviously fecked...

He was at a junction waiting to turn right when a van ploughed straight through him. It was all at low speed so he's not hurt.

Hopefully he'll post up soon.

My mechanic told me, "I couldn''''''''t repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder". Seems legit...

Oh dear poor Columbo.  GWS from the bruises etc. Just after posting what nobs the bosses were for sending him out on  a dodgy bike too.   Hope all ends well.

Sorry to hear this, but glad to hear he's fine albeit that  his gear isn't.

Hope things are sorted smoothly (esp. with the mugged off work bike!) and that the bruises heal quickly.

Thanks for all the kind words. Insurance claim is filed (Company policy) but I doubt its gonna cover my own gear.
The gear supplied by the company is sub-standard so I wear my own gear (besides the company jacket which is required for me to pass as "in uniform").
Unfortunately, this means my personal gloves took quite a beating. On closer inspection, my trousers are fine. (A relief as they are on loan to me from Held)

Anyone got advice as to what I can do regarding my gloves?

Let me guess, your bosses ordered you to drag the bike back, right? :D

GWS and drag out the sick leave.

Don't understand why you're worried about your gloves, and don't forget any other items of kit damaged too. The other party clearly appears to be at fault just claim for your loses off of their insurers.

Yeah, best to speak to a lawyer and start a claim for all your uninsured losses... 

Glad to hear you weren't hurt.
