I don't belive it

Yesterday I removed the tupperware panel to check the oil, was a bit low so left the side panel in the garden while I tootled into town to get some. When I returned I found my wife in a bit of a panic, the panel had been picked up by the wind and blown down the cobble store drive and badly scratched. $150 to have repaired, won't do that again, be warned.

Damaged panel

Varminter, You may want to wait on the repair until you have time to make the Pub rounds. You can then tell the story about how you were able the scrape the panel while make that hairpin turn, you know thw one. Look at it this way the lads could buy a round while you explain the ride and how you smoked the two sprot bikes that were trying to keep up. Before you know it they will be hanging on every word. Leave before too many questions are asked.


Sorry about the damage, but it was a hell of a ride.

Good Luck

I did think about that but the only way I could have scraped that panel would have removed my head too :-)

Pub Stories

Varminter, No all Pub stories have to make sense, to keep everyone entertained.


Good Luck

It's summer here. Just fitted a top box and took the wife for a ride to check if she prefers it to the back rest. She does, big plus.
