Hey, On a friday Lil and I are developing a habit of test riding Ducati's. Today whilst her chain and sprockets were getting replaced we took the 749 out for a run, well nearly. john rolled it out front onto the drive and we got our helmets and sh-it sorted out. This woman in a 4x4 scenic thing walked past the bike jumped in her tractor and reversed into it, knocking it onto the ground as I looked on. I ran round to her window and knocked on it as she was turning to pull out. She got out and apologised. Bust fairing, brake lever, mirror , brake lever, cover scrached and some other cosmetic stuff. She asked if it was an expensive bike.......I said look at the showroom......Lotus.....Ducati.....Hmmmm "well you shouldt have parked it there" she said My feet got itchy and i felt riverdance coming on......then John came out and smiled and said "its ok just need your insurance and they can sort it out" She wasnt pleased at all as she thought she would have no responsibility for knocking it over. Anyway......never got to go out on that one. Another time !
