    Battered, bruised, few bits of missing skin, all kit ruined, bike most likely a write off, not bad for only 30 - 40 mph

    Yikes! On the upside, as long as it isn't pissing oil/coolant about then it should be repairable.

    Oh it's repairable, but using OEM parts the bill comes to £4k+, so It'll probably be written off.

    Either that's a lifetime ban (and probably grounds for prosecution) or someone isn't doing their job.

    I saw that on the news this morning. Agreed, Fenati needs a permanent ban.

    Whats everyone riding now? Spring is coming over the horizon and I feel like upgrading my 2008 Kawasaki Versys. Might keep it in the family and just get a newer Versys!

    Nothing in a rideable state at the moment, but the bijou workshop-ette is coming along nicely. Insulated, lit, flooring in, just need to decide between a cheap bog-standard wooden workbench, or splashing out on one of those massive multi-unit on-wheels we-put-drawers-in-the-drawers-so-you-can-sort-while-you-sort monstrosities.
