    Brush with the grim reaper

    Driving down the Walworth Road on me motosickle today and a Fiesta coming the other way makes a right turn across me. Manage to swerve but she whacks the rear side of the bike. The RH pannier is smashed to pieces but miraculously I don't fall off. A bus driver witnessed the whole thing and gave me his number, which was good of him. The old dear in the Fiesta was upset and apologetic so I couldn't get mad at her. Said she didn't notice me. It's a Moto Guzzi California with peashooter pipes. Quiet it ain't. And I had the headlight on.

    No damage apart from the pannier. My insurance company said get a new one and they'd send the bill to her insurers.

    Well, I've got more chance of finding hens' teeth or rocking horse ****e than a factory RH pannier from a California II. Bleeing marvellous.

    You might be in luck dear sir!

    My old Dad had a Californian a fair few years back and took his paniers off.

    Now, as he is even more of a pack rat than I the chances are he will still have them stashed away in his shed.

    Leave it with me and I will give him a call.
