Damn that's a shit move, to cripple a bike as beautiful as that and drive away with no note. I hope you get her fixed up and back on the road quickly and with little fuss. I'm looking forward to your report on the 1199R, you going to start a new thread or just post it in here?
Oh and Happy St. Paddy's day everyone! I'll hoist a pint (or several) for you tonight.
