As some already know, Sophie has suffered some damage. (No pics as in hands of my insurance twits & I didn't use the 'a' they deserve).
The drivers mirror was wiped and therefore the indicator from that was causing the rapid repeat that a bust bulbs gives.
Both driving me nuts.
So, mirror from Halfords (£20) with blind spot bit.
Took motor out and saw the indicator connection out.
It is in a typical 'no owner will be able to touch this' position (same as Japanese bikes).
Much patience/contortion/naughty words and I have a working indicator. TFFT.
No more irritating rapid repeat.
Mirror a bit of a bodge (I've added tape to make sure it doesn't fly off due to loose cover,
but this is being replaced during body shop work.
And yet another winner, the motor still works.
So, the biggie, the roof.
My mech says should be ok, ditto bodyshop and myself.
It does, phew.
Downers...Essex f*&^&*g CC.
2 tickets for bus lane infringement.
His 'n hers tickets.
Normally I'd fight it but too far away & busy instructing insurers over 55.
Poor signage, which by the time you see it your are committed and cannot get out of the lane safely.
I thought cash generators were in trouble, but apparently the Essex branch is in full swing still.
