My gloves ended the same as yours when, escaping a gang of Mods in Battersea Park, I rode over a small wall and found a 3 foot drop the other side. The exhaust pipe fell off and I picked it up with my gloves on and threw it straight into the sidecar. It was really scary for onlookers seeing the M21 throwing a foot long exhaust flame under the petrol tank..... Being young and stupid I thought it looked cool....
LOL! That's going back some, I had my first taste of bikes by being taken to the Saltbox ( i lived just down the road in Leaves Green as kid) by my neighbour across the road, I was probably about 10, mind you I am glad my first experience of being taken up the road on the back of my uncles Tunderbird, terified me a first! but didnt put me off.
