Iain's in Hospital

Hi All, I just wanted to let you guys know that Iain is in hospital. He's been operated on for a badly ruptured and infected appendix. Not fun at all.

He'll certainly be on a ward for a few more days at least and then there's going to be a significant recovery period. However, Iain being Iain, he's already doing work on the HUBB UK from his hospital bed - in a limited fashion mind!

Anyway, thoughts with him and Robyn. Get well soon mate.

Looks like a very sudden 'adventure'.

Hope you're in good hands Iain and soon back on two feet and two wheels.

All the best....

Great news...!

Hope you make a speedy recovery Iain.

I was hoping to catch up with you at the Ace on Sunday, couldn't believe it when Sam told me what had happened.
Take it easy and good luck with Donnington. Sadly, Nik & I can't make it as were off to Europe and beyond on our new bike.

Yes, it's a V-strom..

All the best,

Gus and Nikcki.
