You can see how bad it was, Deb slips as she walks through the ford!
Yeah, no one hurt and the crash bars did their work and saved a lot of damage to the bike.

Just a update had to buy new lever and clutch switch thought problem solved wrong, small bolt holding switch to clutch post broke off :fix: so could not attach new switch so went back to dealers in Grimsby  said I would have to buy all lot as a complete unit lever switch attached to post would not  give refund :groan on first parts lever and switch 33 :groan: so had to pay another 45.
In end took to bike shop to fix as heated grips had to come off to slide clutch post on 25 labour.
Also handguard damage now fixed with some barkbusters 65. No warning light coming on now :thumb: 168 in total birthday money gone never mind had a nice day out :thumb:
