    The Worlds Greatest........ Boat Anchor.

    West bound on on Welshpool, pass what I would guess, about 20 of them in formation.
    I turn into Kewdale. Pick my bits up and return to find ambulances, tow trucks and WAPOL's Harleys littering Eastbound on Welshpool.
    I guess the brakes took some getting used too.
    Someone must have panicked, grabbed a handful and flipped it end over end and those behind did exactly the same. 😉

    I am so pleased we did not get issued Harleys. Can't imagine a more unsuitable bike for the use.

    The report says they eventually did issue a recall for the brake line routing, but the time it took for that to happen was of "grave concern" to the LAPD.

    The recall in Australia was only made public I believe a week of so ago that covered bikes from as far back as 2005 - 6.
    It took some time.
