Last time I visited my local Honda shop (about 4 weeks ago) there was a thoroughly smashed CX 500 E in there, waiting for the insurance guy to be written off. No chance for a repair - just about everything bent and smashed. Sad thing to watch! Head on with a car, driven on the wrong side of the road.

Today - just back in town for a couple of days I went in there again to get a couple of bolts. What did I discover on one of the lifts? A German registered GL 500 Silver Wing - with full aftermarket luggage. Maybe not the most pampered bike - 130000 kms and probably more often used than polished. The motor was seized - lhs big-end bearing they said. Almost empty on oil!!

Think I´d better stop visiting! Seems to have an ill effect!!
