Sorry to hear about your knock mate. Hope you're ok. Can't help with any parts for the bike but I've got a couple of old table tennis balls you can have for other repairs!

My trip home didn't end as planned !!!!
Bummer!!! Easily done though. My concentration was beginning to peter out by Sunday lunchtime. Could have been much worse though.

bloody hell Al, not the carbon mudguard.................. :(
I hope you got a pretty nurse/doc to attend to your never regions, I wasn't so lucky, I had a 6ft gay nurse called Andy. funny how you remember those things... :lol:
if you can wait until july, I will have a good condition mudguard you can have for free mate, it's in late model yellow tho, but does come with a fender extender. after all I do owe you one... :oops:
btw i'd guess your lower yoke maybe shagged as well, they're made of cheese, but your fork brace may have saved it.
HEY YOU GUYS!!!!!!

Sorry to hear of your little mishap.You ought to ask the doctor if they can take away the pain but leave the bollox with the swelling.

So lasts nights mails were coming live from A&E dept and I can now report that no pretty nurses were offered, only 4 different male nurses / doctors / consultants got their hands on my plums... the 2nd bloke, he got carried away and went for the finger up the tonsils just for good measure too 8O [looking for the missing plum?] .. As you can imagine this was all pretty upsetting as I had managed to avoid all that kind of thing when sharing the brokeback tent over the weekend :lol: [Pete, has Julie accepted your version of events yet?].

They were threatening to a) keep me in overnight and b) cut into the sack to investigate and drain the blood, but the consultant who came in at 1am said I could go home as he managed to find both balls [thanks of the offer of table tennis balls though Kev].

so today the bruising has gone even further, and I am walking like John Wayne... photobucket keeps crashing so you will have to wait for the graphic black balls pics

I think a combination of dropping concentration levels after a long weekend and also I was running at such slow speed compared to the rest of the weekend, that I dropped my focus on hazards awareness.

pretty embarrassing, and the first time either on a car or a bike that I have run into somebody else with me being to blame....... oh well, at least I had protected no claims and can Fix my bike for less than my excess.

can you all keep an eye on FB and ebay for any parts that come up

I've got a spare one (on a stem) if you need it. Would need bearings fitted though

So
We got down graded from the Blue Palace and all squeezed into the green condom
Image

The weather was a bit iffy at times

Image

But that just made the moments like this more exceptional when we got them
Image

And it sure was great when you turn up somewhere and they make you feel welcome
Image

Image

And the saggy granny tits bra managed to do its stuff all weekend without missing a beat Image
Soz. That's all I've got. Not like me, I'm normally taking loads of snaps

Al, I happen to have a set on 954 use legs that need a rebuild, but are straight.
One mudguard bracket casting bit is snapped off on one if the lowers, but there's a spare intact stanchion.
But, and there's always a but, I can't get them apart with the normal shocking the two sections apart method, so they will need a little more persuasion.
I didn't need them ( bought as spares) but I was going to pump them apart hydraulically if I needed them.

If you're up for the challenge, pm me and I'll do you a mates rate price.
You'll still need yokes, but I may have a lower, I'll have a look.

Can't help with a mudguard, but if you have these a Storm one won't fit anyway

And a blade carbon one sits nicely... . .

Let me know if that will assist.

It's about time you had a properly adjustable front end on the bike.

And no, I don't need a plum p/ex.
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.
