[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] On returning to my 1100 Enid, I saw her lieing on her side. A kind car driving must have backed into her and buggered off. Thankfully a scooter delivery guy saw me and my bike and stopped to help me right her. No fuel or oil was leaking, but the rear brake lever was hanging loose like an unloved testicle. The fall has broken the bottom of the right-hand plate that holds the pegs and brake. The part costs £280 and it looks like it would need to ordered from Italy. :/
I then thought this was a golden opportunity to see how good a local welder I'd been told about. Happy happy joy joy. The guy was great. Turned the job round in a day for £20. And it was perfectly aligned. If you're any where near SW London I recommend AJ Welding, SW17.

I can relate! I dropped my GRiSO in loose gravel in a parking lot at walking speed and did the same thing. Stuck it in 3rd gear and rode home and fixed it myself. I was a bit concerned about melting the threaded boss that holds the brake light switch so I made a heat sink
