Ouch!

« on: November 15, 2018, 06:58:39 PM »
I took the F850GS to Allen Jefferies for its first service today.
Brilliant weather too for a ride out.
Whilst my bike underwent service, I took the opportunity to grab a bite of lunch and visit other dealerships nearby.
As I left the Ducati/Triumph dealership showrooms, I heard a very expensive crunch/bang noise behind me.
I turned and helped an elderly customer from beneath his Ducati Multistrada, which was now on its left side outside the showroom windows.
They don't drop well. The indicator assembly is a series of LED's built into the hand guards.
There proved to be some damage to plastics on the flank of the machine too.
An expensive foot slip.
A bike is for life, not just for summer.

"If it ain't broke, keep fixing it until it is."
