Shight!

Thought my new back tyre was scrubbed in until today when... exiting a low speed corner, an application of throttle spun up the rear tyre and SCRAWP! - welcome to my freshly scraped V+H can!

As the title says - “SHIGHT”! (rhymes with night).

Sorry to hear it, Guffer. Glad you made it through unscathed.

Each one matters.
