I did something quite like this then broke my peg! :blink:

I hope the bike is sorted and not cost you too much. :)
Never enough time and so much to see and experience.

Well I couldn't find another hangar anywhere on eBay, and an owner on the Versys owners forum sold one for £6! I had to fork out £52.50 for one from the dealership. Never mind eh? Lesson learned!

Just a case of finding a new rear tyre now as the rear was punctured near the edge and showing cord when I got home. If I'd have known I wouldnt have done 80 down the motorways! :blink:

The weekend Looked fantastic I wish I could have been there.

I am aware of quite a few brave new offroad virgins may wish to be considered for the BBRR sticker

A winter visit sounds like a good idea.

Your pics have been popping up all over Facebook too ;)

Hopefully I'll have my new bike soon so I can try and make one of the others.

Sorry, tried to post some photos but seems I need to RTFM. First time I've done it from Snapfish. Will sort it out later.
I got a motorbike for my wife...

Best swap I ever made.

Good to know it's sorted. Biking is never cheap

Hi all, more photos... An assortment of my favourite photos from last week including some of the trail rides that Sue and I did around Gloucester and the ride home from the rally. Mostly Sue's photos I have to say.
Dave, this link just keeps going to the snapfish error page.
