    Halfway through a great ride out on Sunday with two mates, I pulled up at a set of traffic lights at Carlisle on our way to Lloyds Honda. After a little tomfoolery trying to hit each others kill switch I pulled a little to hard to the right........let's just say the next 5 seconds was a mix of huffing and puffing followed by a crunch and lots of swearing........I had just dropped my price and joy a 63 plate Speed Triple in white

    So now I need the following parts to get my baby back to her pristine condition

    Mirror
    Indicator
    Bottom fairing

    Antony from Lloyd Honda gave me a replacement brake lever

    So let's just say no more tomfoolery at whilst stationary

    Anyone got any of the above parts available can you please get in touch

    Thanks, a very sad biker

    Yep, all been there one way or another. Once dropped SWMBO's bike in the garage when I was 3mtrs away with my back to it......
    Just heard the sickening crash,..... as you say followed by lots of swearing..... (side stand wasn't fully kicked out).
    SWMBO wasn't too pleased either! :confounded:.....told her "wasn't me, I was no where near it" :laughing:

    Hi, probably just keep an eye out on evilbay for replacement parts, if all else fails a nice new sticker to cover the injury....:(

    Couldn't believe it, been riding for over 30 years and never happened before, dented pride and so frustrated....:confused:
