Money well spent. $400 to cover a $1 clamp. No one is pulling anything over on you.

Opps, I forgot. Will the YES even cover a spoke nipple?

It's not nice to mess with mother Yamaha.

Oh, and didn't you ask for this......?

Not to mention the towing costs and the labor to pop that clamp back in?
Yep, I'm a thinker.

One of the things I look forward to everyday is jumping into this site and being entertained or informed by all of you.
I realise I havent added a great deal to the conversation but dont think that I dont appreciate all the banter. I like to sit back and watch.
Its christmas eve here in Oz so I want to wish all you fellow Tenere owners and lovers all the best of the season and I look forward to next year for more of this bullshyte.

Wait a minute. Are you sure you're not Geology Rocks fake Noob?

No one enjoys a good round of thread derails and general mayhem than Geology.

Merry Christmas to you and yours as well.

Oops...Sorry. It was my photo-editing software that I use for my blog. I shrank your pic before I re-posted it and the program automatically added the watermark.

On the bright side. It's still a good grin.

Hurry and claim it under Snakebitten's YES plan.

Mine too - it's an epidemic! We should be demanding a recall!

I fixed mine by tweaking the clippy bit, but that's beside the point...

Betcha' a buck there's a worldwide safety recall for a "new and improved clip" within 6 months...

You'll never see one for Beemer final drives, but there'll be one for these clips!!!

I just wish I'd noticed it after the holidays. It's put such a damper on everything.

Does YES cover emotional distress? I really shouldn't speak about until I've
had time to calm down and really look at the situation.

I should really have this guy come "Look at it"

Yo pluric boy. This is a clear case of owner abuse. Yes will not cover it. If you try real hard you could have it fixed by next week.

Hey smartass. Some of us are taking this with the level of seriousness it deserves.
Wait until yours does it and it won't be so funny anymore.

I'm one of the lucky ones who was able to find enough gum under the table to give
it a proper fix. As much as I complain about them, those kids can come in handy sometimes.

I don't even want to look over in Gspot. I'm sure we are the laughing stock of
the internet right now.
