Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Got T-boned by our friend Mr White (van man) while cycling to my local shop before Christmas and am unable to ride so am selling.

Also could do with the cash as the bloody scumbag has gone from excepting liability at the scene to denying liability when i claimed Sad

Anywhoose its an 2002  red cb500sy with about 35k on the clock, has a new front tyre (about 100 miles on, newish back (400-600), its done about 1.5k on DID chain and jt sprockets, new TEC rear shocks fitted only a few months before accident and a new rear disk at last mot. Will come with 12 months MOT, oh and it will come with a new battery......will be advertising it for £950 but will take a bit less from a friendly forum member.

This is an old pic as ive not got a new one as the bike is right at the back of the garage and i havent the strength to get it out yet.

Looks very nice and sounds well sorted, just up the road from me too, wish this had come up sooner, was on the lookout a few months back!
Bargain for someone! Hope you recover well!

Thanks guys, no witnesses unfortunately.

Also unfortunate is the fact that the police did not prosecute...how he can exit a give way straight into a cyclist in a cycle lane with the excuse of "i did not see him" and not get done for undue care and attention i will never know!....but spose i should be glad he stopped as i would never of been able to identify the reg etc in all that drama

Hi, get well soon.

Fwiw I witnessed a bike accident over a year ago (posted on here about it) and it wasn't resolved by last December. I've spoken to both solicitors and as everyone was at fault (or at least could have driven/ridden a little better) both parties have a case so it'll be a percentage of blame thing...will get sorted one day!

Glad you've sold it and which hornet are you going for the 600 or the 900?
