Hi there Neil .....
Yeah, am not putting too much energy into cussing the miserable dogs who nicked it. Instead doing what can be done towards getting it back into top notch ready for next years trip again. In that regard it's with the Bristol BMW dealer (Motorrad) awaiting assessment. I'm lucky enough to have other means of transport, so there's no urgency to get it fixed from that perspective.
Besides which need to complete upgrading security in the garage before the Dakar comes back ....
I'll publish an update as things progress. Meanwhile I'm looking forward to meeting those who are going to the Northern meet end of the month, and you next week Neil. On that note, PM or Email me to let me know your travel plans, so we can arrange to meet-up.
