Last oil change i rounded the bolt that holds the filter in, so today was the day to get at it with a pair of multi grips and get it out. $63 freaking dollars for a new filter bolt and i was set. I got 2 hours into trying to force this bloody thing off, then my neighbour came down and tried to help. After an hour or so of the both of us trying, my neighbours flatmate walks out and lends his assistance too, then another neighbour who is a tradie with some good power tools... We had the bike lifted at the front end at balance point and still couldnt get the sucka off. So maybe 4 hours, angle grinders, lock grips, multi grips and files later, we decided it was a lost cause. So we went on to just do the oil change. The first neighbour that had lent a hand decides it'd be a perfect time to change the oil on his 2006 GS500 and ducks off to get some oil. Meanwhile it has started to rain, so i thought i'd wheel his bike into his garage until he got back. Once i'd wheeled it inside i popped some weight on the centre stand to get it parked, when all of a sudden i'd over-balanced and the bike started getting away from me i was at my own balance point for what seemed like a minute all the while thinking 'if this goes one millimetre more to the far side im gone'.... then it happened, i fell over the bike and it fell against his garage wall, smashing the mirror with the most God awful sound and laid to rest at about a 30 degree angle. I couldn't believe what i had done! The moment he got back i couldnt say sorry enough, i wanted him to kick the mirrors off my bike just for retaliation. I've told him to go in and get a quote and i am happy to fix up ANYTHING that is needed to get it back in the exact shape that it was before i put my grubby, clumsy ass hands on it, but he kept refusing and saying it didnt matter at all. I ended up forcing him to take $100.00 to get the mirror fixed, but there was still small scratches on the exhaust and one of the engine covers. I am seriously so upset that i have done this to someone that was so willing to lend a hand all afternoon and i go and repay him like that Anyone else done something as stupid, or willing to offer some suggestions on the right way to pay my dues??
