Oh, and the best bit - a side stand. Why aren't they standard? Wouldn't be without it.

Your bike didn't come with a side-stand?

Brian (whose bike did, but he fitted a centre-stand and can't understand why they don't come with one of those

Doh. Centre-stand :-)

I know why, BMW just came up with one more idea of ripping us off.

Come on Rae, time for your tablets.

Brian (who is sure the Garmin reference was my words in quotes  ::) )

Could Rae be persuaded to offer a pre-posting poof reading service?

Oh there I go again; dropping my "R"s  ;)

Good advice; I could really do with saving a fortune just.

Its not always the destination that counts its the ride, having a destination just stops you going round in circles.

" Just seen a headlamp bird strike and found out how much a replacement is "

Yes, thought that was a good idea too.
How much is a replacement headlamp ?

I had a pheasant hit the screen on my TL1000 at about 90 once.
It completely wrecked the screen & probably wouldn't have done me much good either, but luckily saw it coming & managed to get my head down onto the tank in time.
