Default Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

The cafe at my local Triumph dealer is now closed. Heck of a shame as it did very nice food and was a nice stopping off point when out and about. Even though it is TFEST 2018 this weekend they don't have any catering on the go, so not surprisingly nobody's hanging around to buy anything

I went home instead and Lady Poppy made me a bacon sarnie to make up for it. Hoorah.

More stupid drivers. came of the dual carriage way slip road, and then took the first exit, which is almost a 90 deg bend, bushes on the side of the road, but I see the rear of a tipper van, so slow down, thinking there's someone in front of him.

No the stupid **** has stop on the blind corner to answer his phone!

Lots of traffic come off the dual carriage way at quite a speed, and takes this first exit quite quickly.

Heat rash on my thighs. This is after a week in Cuba, and the shock to my white wobbly body of being exposed to sunshine after months of winter. The antihistamine and cortisone are helping.

But on the upside, I also experienced the cheesiest chat up line ever while I was away, it's still making me laugh.

My R&G tail tidy has snapped! I noticed it was getting a bit wobbly recently. I was cleaning the bike today and realised it had snapped right off, so had to quickly fit the standard one again before a ride. I don't think I'll be buying any of their stuff again

Mine snapped too, whilst on my commute to work one morning. The indicators must have been bouncing all over the place. I repaired mine with a bit of conduit ducting. Needed too so I could ride home. That was about 15000 miles ago.

I take it you didn't contact them about it then? I feel like telling them how **** their product is, but they still haven't updated the kit to the newer dorsoduros even though I told them about it 3 years ago. So I'm probably wasting my time

The annoying thing is I can't find the Aprilia kit anywhere now. I think they've stopped making it

No I didn't complain, but then I didn't buy it either - the previous owner fitted it - still I was quite annoyed it died the way it did. Without much warning.
