    They remind me of car bras (Google it!)

    Yes they protect your tank, but at what cost? :p

    Not really that many. I dropped a ZXR 750 on a bend because of some oil and put one through a hedge while taking evasive action.

    I done in an RD500 good style. I pretty much turned that to scrap. That bike would probably be a million quid to buy now. I was heartbroken.
    Oh and I put a 400 superdream in ditch. But to be fair that's probably the best place for it.

    Each to their own. I'm not a fan but that's not to say it isn't practical :)

    I'll keep with my Osprey ruck sack that works fine, unless the excess of one of the straps works free and starts whipping my arse in the wind :p

    the integrated tail light/indicators,theres a new law that states there has to be a clear line between the brake light and indicator light,even though I had normal winkers fitted,and I forgot to bolt the riders seat back on cos id just charged the battery,and a loose seat is a fail aswell

    and when you first apply front brake it comes back a little too far,so probably needs a bleed

    miserable git,ohh and I had to get it all wet n dirty which I didn't wanna do

    EDIT: omg the sound of the end can,its so loud and pops and crackles,even when changing gear:D:D

    A loose seat? Surely the test centre would just do up the two bolts no?

    That sucks... I hope I don't have to change my tail light for next years MOT, I'll stick some indicators on and disconnect the indicator part of the tail light. But it would mean that 2 strips on the headlight won't work, so that'll probably be a fail.

    It'll probably fail on them now,how did you wire yours up? Mine has two wires one for each side of the integrated light and they connect to one of the bikes indicator wires,one for each side

    I just unplugged two wires to disable the indicator part of the tail light

    @benji I left the bolts out like a fool

    To early to say yet,but the brakes and suspension are leaps and bounds better,seems quicker once you open it up aswell
