Test ride pending, just waiting for the liquid sunshine to stop. :roll:

Sorry to hear of your spill Yaka
Your footpeg will need a heavy hammer
Panniers scuffs should come out with a heat gun
Shame about your exhaust

The key thing is that you're ok.

thanks, i am ok as it happened as i just setting off from a mini round about, scary thing was when the bike bounced up and carried on going for a couple of yards before it stopped close to a school zebra crossing. i am just glad it happened in the earlyr hours as during the day its fairly busy around there with foot traffic

Thanks guys. Latest tube is a heavy duty one sourced from a local offroad motorsport specialist... so I'll keep my fingers crossed and see how it goes.
Went out to the MT today to move it... and the blasted back tyre is flat again. I haven't used the bike in a couple of months, it seems to have just developed a puncture whilst parked. Again. Makes absolutely no sense to me at all...

Tried pumping it up but I can hear the air leaking somewhere inside the tyre.

Too annoyed (and cold) to feck about with it today - just stuck the bike on its centre stand again. :evil:

This has happened to you before. When you take it apart run your fingers around the tyre, you may have a foreign object in the tyre Also check your rim and renew rim tape if needs be
