Default Re model

On my way to the Norton factory bike night and the road decided to re model my bike for me. Front end slipped out at a relatively low speed, no grease, grit or manhole covers. Bloody mystery really.

Cheers lads, waiting for the insurance to pick it up. Then begins the hunt for another.

Could you buy it back from the insurance co? Looks mainly cosmetic.

Confidence thing with it mate, there was no real reason for the front end to tuck under as it did and I would always be wondering if it would happen again.

Yellow is magnetically attracted to the road paint. Glad you're okay. I had that happen to me a few years back.
