Cut a long story short, crank snapped I lost balance and I hit the ground...and a HGV. Worst bit is my left hand is all messed up pins, screws and repaired tendons. Now my partner doesn't want me to get another bike, I have danced around the subject just to test the water but it doesn't look good. I want to give it a big push and change her mind. I know everyone is different but how would you talk your other half round? Without using black mail or weapons. Also, I used all my Browne points up last year on a lads holiday.
