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

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.
