Jesus H Christ on a bike!

It looks just as bad as I imagined.

I hadn't realised it had chucked itself down the road....of course, slowing down was the cause of that, he should have pinned it till he got to the coast and then ridden into the sea, much softer landing methinks  8)

Are you selling tickets for the showdown in M/cr? Despite being up there last week it would be worth the ride up just for the laughs  >:(

How about a mass EuroKClub ride-out....

Ok we need to add the folks at Faro to the dealers section.
He was so lukcy that he might consider paying a visit at one of the many churches down there as to thank the mighty God for giving him one more chance.
Regret that am away a visit there would be most informative, especially on the way a mad briton would express himself .........
Do not believe that they would ever directly admit that fack up , hope that they will express the courtesy of admitting the possibility of a screw up and compensate somehow.
Really lucky rider and with a sense of something going wrong with his bike ever present.

ISTR those bolts are single use and are coated with blue Loctite, looks like they may have been reused?

Many times reusable bolts those ones and always loctite to be used, but who tighten them? How they did the recall with new part on bike and electric heating clamb? Was it forgoten for more than a couple of min? Was it a clumsy work after all?
