Default Shortest AR ever...bike dead :-(

So having made a last minute decision to blow out my boyfriend and a trip to wales to come to the AR, im now sat on the M62 waiting for a tow truck to get me and my ****ing bike back home, 100 miles away!

Dont know what the problem is, probably electrical (though its just had reg/rec and battery in June), all I know is that my 'reliable' honda is now having its third recovery in as many months, and I want my sv back!!!

Abslutely gutted doesnt even begin to describe how I feel

The recovery guy didnt seem to know the front end from the back end!!

I dont know what to think, It just coasted to a standstill on the motorway, then was totally dead when i tried to restart it. Dash lights came on but dimmed when I pressed start button. Now its home and trying to fire up but not enough power so ive put it on to charge.

Why would it go from totally dead to trying to start after being left a couple of hours?? Me no understand

Tonyk, you should laugh cos im crying and its not really helping!!!

I really wanted to let my hair down and have some fun this weekend, something i havent been able to do all year for various reasons. Not a happy bunny!

Thanks for the hugs G, i was hoping to give you a real life one

Im sure there will be an opportunity

If you took a picture of your bike in the recovery van then you could take the tag in the motorcycle picture game
