Do you have the patronising "temporary American" label in the US, like we do?
At the tender age of 20-something my most speckie crash was on my learner bike, the monstrously lethal Yamaha XS 250. I had hallucinations about being Mick Doohan. My then-fiancee, now bride of 18 years, took me to the hospital. Fluid on the knee and denim-burns were painful, but not as painful as the pontificating doctor lecturing about how stupid motorcyclists are, he introduced me to the term "Temporary Australian". I asked him what comfortable, noise-less, isolated padded car he drove and, you'll never guess it- he was a bloody volvo driver.
The bride paid for the repairs to the bike. Good sort, that girl.
JN- dead right, mate. Every day above ground is a good day!
The problem with socialism is that you soon run out of other people's money.

I never understood the attraction to Volvo cars... Ugly as the south end of a north facing horse.
No we don't say temporary American. What does that mean?
In college I met a few guys that adopted an English accent and used it to hit on the ladies. I guess they were temporary Britts or something like that.
