In my friend Gregg's words.
"I was on an 8 day riding tour of morrocco with some buddies of mine - we have done similar trips down to baja - this time on wonderful KTM 450s - on day three i was hauling ass after an afternoon learning how to ride sand dunes. - i was trying to push my speed a bit and was doing well - moving at about 50mph across a wide open rocky desert plane - hit a small grass bush and it pushed me off my line - before i could correct i ran into a large rock which was pitched forward as well as being deeply seated in the ground. it stopped the bike - tossed me - the bike then sort of snapped sideways and the tail of the bike swung up into the air and the bike went over my head as I did my superman impression thru the air. I ground into the hard pack - elbow first followed by my face - thankfully the bike landed some distance away. god bless my friend is a doctor and he was riding behind me with a full medical kit on his back. 20 hours of driving later. yes 20 hours of driving from Efroud to Ouarzazate and then over the Atlas Mtns - without pain meds as my lower arm floated around - I got to marrakech where they operated - trussing my elbow back together with an artists touch. its like nothing i have ever experienced. i cant describe the overall effect, but it moved me to my very core. i was very lucky to get away with just my elbow being blasted. jesus hates a pussy."
Gregg, I applaud you my friend. I'm glad you made it home safe.

Found hiding amidst decades worth of crap in the bay next to our shop. As far as I've been able to find out, it's a 1968 (?) Greeves Anglian. It has a 250cc Villiers iron barreled single cylinder motor, and check out the Earles leading link front end! Pretty cool for something that's been covered with trash for so many years. If I'm off base, or anyone else has any other info to contribute, please feel free! I'd love to hear more about it.
