    Exclamation Monitor thread for 'those motorcycles'...

    As many of you who never come in here know, I have a genuine belief that a certain make of motorcycle brings misfortune in the form of mechanical breakdown and accident on their owners/riders.

    You know the ones, I don't need to mention the name here.

    For years you lot who never come in here anyway have laughed at me.

    Well I am starting a thread logging every instance I come across in LAB where an 'unfortunate situation' occured.

    If you have any information regarding any accident or mechanical breakdown suffered by a forum member please advise with as much info as you have, ideally not less than:
    * Date of incident.
    * Model.
    * Owner (forum name if known).
    * Rider (Forum name if known).
    * Others involved.
    * Level 1/2/3. (level 1- tried to kill owner. Level 2- tried to kill itself. Level 3- tried to kill another bike in same storage/proximity)
    * Brief description of incident.


    If you know of any threads from way back that have info on any of the above please feel free to post the link in this thread and I will transpose all relevant info into her in the format I have shown above. Just send me the thread link and I will do the rest.

    Thank you...

The shop I was going to, sold out to a big dealership and customer service, I understand is non existent.
    I have also been noticing my cloths smell horrible from the exhaust smell after riding. Seems like a stronger exhaust smell than before.

    Does non-motor 2 wheel bikes count?
    If not then fuck off anyway.

    If so, I crashed my bike about 2wks. ago.
    Ran off the side of gravel road, turned over in ditch and scrapped my left knee.
    No mechanical failure.
    No dope or alcohol involved.
    100% User Failure.


    Thanks!
