    But when you're sat half way up London Lane in the pissing down rain, with a dead bike thats got a grands worth of damage to it you'll start to wonder...............

    Then as it starts to go dark and get colder, your phone battery has died, and it's becoming obvious the bastards who promised to come back for you have completely forgotten you're still there - you'll know then thats for sure!

    lol! lol!

    You forgot to mention steeling there bike. Haha

    If your going take some oil just in case you loose some on the way theres no point in killing the engine for the sake of a ride
    im not a fan of a helicoil but I does work
    a timeset does a much better job done a sump plug on a yzf 426 with one and it was a better job than the factory
