That is the right outlook on life generally!
Having that positive mindset is most definitely a biker thing. You know you've been stiffed, you've learned something and you will move on.
Have you got anyone with a van or a pick up?
Bike collection and delivery companies exist too, at a price.
There was a time many years ago when there were forum admins who would move threads to the correct section. But that was a very long time ago.
Technical and tyres
Totally agree with you there Pigles , I bought a pair of Givi boxes for my zzr for around £250 but the bit of tubular metal to bolt on the bike to hold said boxes cost an extra £150.
P.S. - now for sale if anyone wants hard luggage for a 11 plate zzr1400
Must admit I love my Altberg oh bought them for me a surprise prezzy when we were touring around Yorkshire and the North east. But they are dated and for me being an old gezzer it's not too bad but for young-en it wouldn't suit at all. mind you I have a pair of Frank T all weather type, Aldi specials daily utility , TCX short boots type, and DM's. all in various states of disrepair/condition.
Now that looks very good indeed
