Just to work...final left hand turn saw the road was shiny just a little too late gently tipped in but bike kept going straight with lean angle. Tried to keep her up with my left leg but too heavy and had to let her slide away  :019:  :oh_no: Looks like a lorry has dropped some diesel whilst parked there over night  :230:

Replacement R&G mushroom left side - 38.50
Snapped the thread in the bar end with handguard attached - 2nd hand ebay £79
Cracked the LED indicator on the handguard - £48.50 a pair
Scuffs on the Handguard itself, so replacing - £34.91

So = £200 ride in this morning :211: so not a happy chappy right now  :023:

Ouch feel for you.  :023:

Double ouch. Could of been worse. A lorry did not run over your bike & no one else involved. :006:

A mate and I had been trying to organise a ride out for ages, so last Sunday we finally managed to sort it out.

Weather was OK, and we hit some decent roads around county Meath before heading in for a nice brekkie.



The SX is just perfect for this kind of thing. So reassuring in iffy grip conditions, with the brakes in particular being superb.

The Thruxton R just sounds so good coming up behind into the corners!

Despite the Trumpet being a good 20 kg lighter, we were neck and neck through the twisities and particularly on the big roundabouts in a certain industrial outskirt of Dublin.

Good times.

ABS on, and Traction control on 3, what could possibly go wrong?
