Hello all you lovely/friendly/helpful souls out there, 3 pm on christmas eve and the security gard rings me to tell me someone was leaning on my beloved VTR250 and knocked it over. I park outside my work at docklands and some no--brainer decided he was gonna smoke his cigarette while leaning on my bike and ran off after dropping it. To my dismay the bars are now bent and its very uncomfortable to ride. I tried peter stevens in the city (melbourne) and the very unfriendly/ rude salesman on the phone simply said there was nothing in stock but could order one for me for a heafty price tag and would arrive in about 2 weeks. My problem is i spent too much ($800) last week getting it serviced (at peter Stevens itself) and am now very tight for cash for a few weeks at least! Can someone please help me out with getting my handlebars replaced at the lowest price possible. I am not mechanically minded and can't do it myself. Also i have just finished my restriction period and was planning to save up for something bigger and so do not wanna spend much. I heard somewhere that ducati monster bars also make good replacement for VTR 250 ones and the riding position is much better, is this true? I wouldn't mind getting a better/lower riding position as it will still be a few months before i can upgrade. Please Help!! This is my only means of transport!!
