I think today should have been entitled XBOX and Beer

I think today should have been entitled "XBOX and Beer".

Pulling out of my mother-in-laws drive on a slight camber, stalled and dropped the bloody bike on the right side.

Thankfully the R&G did it's job nicely, side fairing R&G protector has a slight scuff and exhaust R&G protector on the new Carbon Yoshi's also has a slight scuff but both fairing and exhaust unmarked. Slight scratch on the lower black fairing but it looks like a minor repair. Broke the right foot peg so new one on order.

Right knee was banging but thought feck it i'm off out.

Went to Jordans to get a pair of new PR4's as it was dry..... well it WAS dry, came outside and it was pissing it down with brand new tyres on. At this point I thought "i should've stayed on the f'kin couch with a beer and the XBOX".

Managed to get home ok and the bike is now cleaned and back in the garage awaiting a tyre scrub session.

Some days are just meant to piss us off but thank FCUK I had the presence of mind to fit the R&G's.

Shit happens eh?
