Not only did Brent council RUN OVER my bike for no reason.
The replacement Bandit ('06) model that my insurers gave me died on me today, and because the insurance company has “allegedly” sent out a cheque already…which I haven’t received yet…rather than replace the bike with a working model, they just took the replacement back.
I’ll say this though. Suzuki are giving me all the problems that I HEAR are the probs with Ducati’s - TOTALLY unreliable electics…I am NOT happy and I tell you after having not 1 but 2 Bandits ('04 600 and '06 650) die on me for the same reasons leaving me stranded in the SH!TE hoel that is Harlesden on no less than 4 seperate occassions waiting for SOS to revive the slack Jap crap, I am NEVER buying a Bandit again.
In the mean time, I will be walking between Tube stations and dealers and the homes of people selling bikes til I find a replacement…
Spare a thought for a bikeless addict guvnor. I used to ride, til I met a man who worked for Brent Council… sob…those were the days!
Ta, much appreciated.
Bin men have now joined the hit list along with:
My (ex) boss having just been made redundant
White van men
Anyone who steps out into roads without looking
Most the residents of Harlesden
Anyway…its probably karma for being such an easily angered young man
Sorry John, having expressed such kindness it must look kinda ****e that I then slag off scooter riders. See…its is bad karma come to bite me int eh ass…then nibble my earlobes, then run a filthy septic tonguie all over my face.
Gonna have to ride this one out.
Only good thing to come of this…
When that cheque comes through I get to buy a new bike. whooo hoooo!
Bearing in mind my handle.
CAn anyone recommend anything that is the bike equivalent of the Millenium Falcon…THE dogs minerals disguised under an atrociously ugly, but famously doggish face
All suggestions gratefully appreciated. Currently eyeing up a '99-GSXR-750 with 16k on the clock at a sweet 2k cash… thought about a '96 version of the same cos she looked JUST the part for ole Kenobi, but with 50k on the clock, she was aging a little TOO hard for my liking.
