Now then Mr. Barber just how long did you think your latest misdemeanour could be kept secret from us lot? That lovely red thundercat that the previous owner cherished is now to be consigned to the garage/scrapheap to join bags of s...t one and two, and will become to be known as...Yes folks you guessed it BOS 3. I've seen the footage, and particularly like the one with your legs akimbo whilst inverted. I'm sure that now the cat (scuse the pun) is out of the bag a certain gentleman of Celtic origin might post up a few piccies. cheers the noo.

Thanks for your interest Terry.

Yes I bucked it right up.

I'm absolutely un-injured (thanks for asking)

Gutted it happened though.
Cold?? (2nd lap) touring tyres, poor body position (not hanging off) and too much twist of the wrist too early after coming out the corner was a big ask for the tyres and they gave up and it just slid away.
I slid on my arse watching it slide (and then tumble

Dave is bringing it back to me today in the back of the van.

I've already bought new clip-ons and I've found a rear indicator.
Need a left foot rest (not pillion)
Need to straighten out my Givi tail rack.

All going well it'll be patched up enough for S n T.

Glad you are okay Ross!

That sucks though, she was a really nice cat. Lets hope a wee bit of fettling and some help from a friendly painter could have her back looking her best soon!

I'm sure you've checked ebay but there are a few in various stages of disassembly (depending on what you need). Might need some elbow grease and polish to get some of them looking decent but at least there are a few available.

Good luck with the repairs - hope to see you both at SnT! Smile
