Re: Insurance

I'm with Peter James, I have never made a claim so I don't know how they are when you need them, but they are certainly well priced.

Alan, my bike is in trials/scrambles trim so is far from standard. For what it is worth, mine has a chrome clip around the tail piece of the silencers which are attached to a tabs welded to the mudguard brace that runs from the bottom of the upright brace back to near where the tail light attaches. ...
