This is a question My most gullible moment

Someone once told me that gullible wasn't in the dictionary and I went, "yeah yeah ha ha" but when they were gone that didn't stop me checking. What was YOUR most gullible moment? Zero points for buying an icon on b3ta.

See its a foreign bike luv...
So my mate at work had just bought a new bike, it was a grey import from Japan and had the speedo in Kms but apart from that was fine. It was cheap cos of this but suited him perfectly and he was dead happy with it.

So following Friday night I'm with him and the gf at the post work beerage on the Queen Mary (should you be familiar with the floating beer palace). He mentions his cool new bike to her and then wanders to get his round in. I conspiratorially lean over and say yea, but its not that good a bike, I mean its a hassle to ride cos its not from the UK. Oh and why is that says? said gf.

Cos its a left hand drive bike.

She nods and goes oh that must be really difficult in traffic then.

Uh yea, cough splutter, beer spillage.

Said mate returns and sees me dribbling beer in distress and asks what.

Gf comiserates with him about the old left hand drive status, he sniggers, I gufaw and gf punches me in a hard sweary way. Much loling and a significant huff followed.

One of several examples so clicky for more tales of resultant punches:)

They really exist
Actually left handed bikes really do exist. Police on the contintent will hassle you if you ride a bike with the lights on the wrong side of the frame, so they're on the pavement side, not the road side.

Hence if you ride your English bike in France (or vice versa) remember to swap the lights over.

The Japaneses drive on the same side as us.
