So where does all my Tax go?!

1 of 3

Bimbling along minding my own business the other night, carefully scrubbing in the new rear tyre on my K1200s (always a bad idea to spend money on your bike – bad things are typically around the corner it seems..) and without warning it feels like the front wheel’s exploded and I’m all over the road.

Transpires the following day that I’ve just been unlucky enough to hit a massive pothole right in the middle of the exit from a major roundabout.

Popped to the local BMW dealer today for a checkover and the front wheel’s wrecked, leaving a £500 bill to get it fixed.

Guess who’s going to be calling his solicitor Monday morning… Wonder how quickly a load of patching tarmac would turn up if I’d smashed the bike or myself up?
