Sorry for the very late reply, ive had major IT issues and have not been able to log on.
My bike was a ex Dyfed-Powys police bike. On a 2010 plate, sadly in late July I was involved in a RTC in that I was riding behind a British Rail truck and it suddenly just stopped in the road and proceeded to reverse back !
I was about 8 metres back and honked my horn and shouted but the truck reversed over me as I jumped off the bike, resulting damage made it a cat N salvage write off.
I bought the bike for £3500 and got back a insurance cheque for £5990 so wasnt too upset, sadly she is on ebay now from the salvage company ( 4th Dimension ) I was lucky enough to keep the panniers and bits that I took off her before she went away so again have those to sell on.
Dare I say I have now moved back to owning a BMW 1200 RT, Ive had 3 FJR's over the years and will no doubt miss that superb engine but the BMW comes with lots of gadgets that will keep me busy.
I have up for sale at the moment on this forum the police spec left handlebar PTT bracket which is a cracking piece of kit.
