My second trip out on my CB500F was to Broadstairs. Where I took a wrong turn, then dropped the bike by trying to U-turn on what I did not realize was quite a gradient, snapped the brake lever, bought some small screwdrivers and duct tape in Tesco to splint it together, then grumpily rode back home on the M2.
You being in Chatham reminded me of that! But the bike is still fine 40k miles (and a couple other drops) later.
Thanks for your replies, I am enjoying putting some miles on the bike, as an active member of the Kent Honda Owners club, we do weekly rides around the county, My only issue is the average fuel economy read out showing 93mpg, something I can live with. Happy Days.
