  • Need a bike doctor :(

    Hey peoples!

    I'm the silly prick who binned it on the newbie ride on Tuesday...

    First off, a thank you to everyone who helped out, much appreciated.
    Cheers tim the pool man for the retrieval

    Second, does anybody remember where the hell it happened?? I'd love to get a dozer and remove those speed humps...


    Third, i've now got a bike in the garage that's missing a few bits... I need to get a quote for the insurance claim, and was hoping someone might know a good place??
    If it helps, the bike is a '98 CBR250RR
    I'll bite your face c#%@!

    Pm [MENTION=8418]potato[/MENTION] if he can't help you then he'll know who can
    Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

    when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

      Potato is the man, I should have taken it straight there instead of bringing it to yours. He is in Dianella.
      It was Newburn rd in high Wycombe, at the old shops. Those speed bumps are fucking ridiculous. Only worse ones I've seen are just west of the left bank

        He did look a little sad, didn't he?
        +1 for [MENTION=8418]potato[/MENTION]...he is the man
        Always be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn. Then always be a unicorn.

          As much as i'd like to blame the road for it, if i hadn't grabbed the brake so violently after shitting myself when i hit the first one, chances are i would've ridden away with nothing more than white knuckles and a brown seat...

            That's definitely true, I just get angry when an otherwise safe road is deliberately made dangerous.

                haha, yeah that's true.. Although unless you had changed it, the bike was in top gear which might explain a thing or two

                      Condolences about your crash.

                      Get a motard bike. When you see speed bumps, you smile. That's when it's time to attack the bastards at high speed and get some air time.
                      One owner. Only driven gently on Sundays. Sold to best offer. First to see will buy. Reward offered for safe return. Coming soon to a cinema near you. Available for a limited time only.

                      My waterbed broke this morning. Oh, I don't have a waterbed. Bugger.

                          ^^ This. A lot of the big singles are LAMS approved too.
