General / caught out again
« on: 20 May 2017, 04:28:05 PM »

so on my way back from the nw 200 i had a bit of a spill ,,felt like the back end slipped out from under me , slid across the road barely grazed the back of one car which spun the bike around enough for the handlebars and front fairing and forks to go into and under a 2012 3 series bmw, i came out of it with a swollen ankle which turned out to be a crack either side of my ankle so im layed up with a cast and on crutches for 4-6 weeks :'( ,,i was very lucky to have unfazed with me to carry me the 3+ hours back to cork,with my leg dangling painfully in the wind ,,the more ive thought about it ive come to the conclusion that i dipped it too low and the left crash bung dug in and sent me sliding ,"i always thought they came out a bit too far" ive often rubbed the right one on a roundabout ,,anyway insurance will be taking care of the third party damage as its a lot more costly than it looks :rolleyes oh well thats what its there for i suppose ,,so the bike is in the shed till i decide what to do about it ,,at a glance new forks.bars fairing/lights, infills and break disc,,
to try cheer myself up and give myself something to look forward to ive put a deposit on a05 fazer in the uk which will involve a road trip in a few weeks .

My eargerly anticipated carbon parts arrive from gb moto today. The weather was sunny so I decided to fit them ( airbox cover , seat side panels , radiator trims and fairing in fills )
Got the air box covers on ( just ) despite holes being a gnats cock off but then went on to the seat side panels and bloody things won't fit:'(
So 20 minutes worth of swearing and scratching my head wondering if it was me I gave up and sent a mr angry email. I could get the dremel out but don't see why I should.


thats a balls wouldnt have been that hard for them to get right ffs,,how did the infill panels fit ?
prob sorry you just didnt get them dipped or wrapped now ,,dremels is the way to go id say
