Shearwater Motorcycles

Out and about on a sunny Tasmanian day when I had to pull up at a stop light for some roadworks further ahead. The bike stopped, but the headlight glass kept going! Smashed into a million pieces in the middle of the road. There was adhesive on the glass but no sign of any on the plastic frame. Did some research on the forum and this is a common problem, very disconcerting.

With my lip on the ground I turned the 2009 Brutale 1078 around and headed home, then hit a swarm of bees at quite a brisk pace. Bees guts and honey everyhwhere! So far not a real good day.

Anyway, getting to the point of this rant, I went to my local dealer Shearwater Motorcycles expecting to have to order a new headlight, they took one of an Italia 910 and had me back on the road in less than 10 minutes. Great service! If any of you are down this way make a point of visiting this store, great range of European exotica, helmets and clothing plus great service.
