A little unfortunate.

You have my sympathy, but don't let one small event tarnish your ownership. Just ignore the scratch and enjoy the ride. life is too short to be hung up on cosmetics. 

I'm glad you've finally collected it. The market square in Settle is starting to get busy again now, so you're just in time.

Give it some stick lad!

Cheers! Once I'd had a chance to get over the initial disappointment of doing it, I decided that I'll look at sorting it out eventually. But in the meantime I'll just get out and enjoy it.

Day off tomorrow, so I'm hoping to have a bimble about on it then ☺

Well the weather was just about favourable enough to take the Daytona out for a run today 😊

I really do love it! And did about 70 miles today, with a couple of stops, including some lunch at the Sun Inn pub (between Blubberouses and Otley). Before then riding back through Pateley Bridge and Grassington. The ride back started to get a bit chilly, so I was glad I opted to get some heated grips fitted before I collected it.

Nice one. Good roads as well... I love it all around that area.  The road back to Grassington is a cracker.

Well what a cracking day for a ride out!!

Today was my first of 5 days off, and the forecast was good. So I'd planned to get out on the sunshine this morning, for the first time this year. Did a little over 10 miles, which was harder than I'd anticipated 😉 shows what happens when you've not done much exercise for a while.

Anyway this afternoon, it was too nice not to take the Daytona out for a spin. So a little run up to the Devils bridge for a brew. Where I ran into someone from the Barrowford Bikers Facebook page.

Ended up riding the long way home with her, via the Trough of Bowl and and Clitheroe. Some cracking roads, and a great chance to test out the handling a bit. The power and the torque is great for lower speed riding, and for a big sportsbike it seems pretty nimble.
