Mmmm - sounds like denial - for $90 a year if you broke something or got a flat they would come and get you or put you up in a 5 Star caravan. :dance:

Good luck :crazy:

If nothing else, you've got to enjoy getting up in the morning and seeing that thing parked in your garage ...

Sorry to hear such bad luck, can't say I'm surprised about suttos. I turned up to there old shop to buy a used 950 se about 5yrs ago and the DIckhead told me it would be forsale again in a week or so as he was riding it to Philip Island and back :mad:
But then said "wanna come out the back and have a look at it" er wtf "and I'll take your number and call next week" needless to say I never heard from him......wanker :thumb:

The Mitas is pretty good and 100% better on the road but value for money and last better is the Sava MC23 I had previously.
Shit on the road compared to the E09, they are a 140/80 but they are very good on the trail and grip like a bastard.
Oh...........and very cheap, about $130 :shock:
Worth a try :thumb:

Traced it to this

Damn it, dead short within the antenna cable FFS.

I especially bought a "locally" made by a local expert antenna maker, you know, support your locals type scemario :(
Piece of crap as it turns out :x

Ive replaced it with a commercial grade RFI antenna, unfortunately foreign made but what can you do if you cant get decent locally made stuff and another properly made coax, third time lucky :ne_nau:

New RFI
