The GS was going up for sale in a few months anyway, when my R100GS special is built, but the market for a 180,000Km bike is not huge and I would have had to fit three new discs and pads at least for it to pass the roadworthy. I haven`t heard back from the insurers with a payout figure yet, but it will surely be more than I could have sold it for, if I could have sold it. I suppose I have to be thankful for small mercies.

Yesterdays ride: Noticeable extra grip at both ends but especially the front. MT21 thumbs up so far!
