Nec bike show

On 20/11/2017 at 13:23

Went to my first bike show on Sunday with some of the insurance money. Ialso met and had a great conversation with guisseppe from quadro about the few little issues I had found. He really took on board what we had found will be looking at ways to solve the issues. Also met some of the guys from my face book group. Then proceed to spend money I bought a new jacket, some Road skin jeans and finally a sena 10c headset, which at first was just outside my comfort zone. Then a elderly gentle man approach me and asked if the youngster serving me was OK, did I also find what is was looking for, I said that I was looking at the camera but it was just a bit to much, he then took out a calculator and the price list looking up the retail £349 then proceeded to tap on the calculator and said that he could do it at £200 a saving of £149. So how could I refuse. Just need bike back to try it all out.

Sounds like a great day mate! What issues did you raise about the bike?

Have you heard from the insurance yet, any idea how long it will be before you're back on the road? Sounds like you got a great deal mate! What camera did you treat yourself too?

the insurance have the bike already and have already paid out injury and a lump sum for diesel so i can use my own car. im not expecting it back before christmas though. the people on the stand who i have had a relashionship with before i got the bike said that they will look out for the people fixing my bikes order and rush it through. the show was an eye opener , and the quadro stand was just full of quadro 4 bikes. the designer of the bike was there and we had a good chat over for an hour i pointed out that the dashboard was to bright detracting the night vision which he agreed is wrong . i also mentioned about the fuel pipe needed to be wider so when the pump stops there is room for petrol nozzle to filltank not come over the top and the speedo is in kmh not mph and gave him a suggetion about that. he then told me that they are going to be designing a new dashboard to which i ask is it going to be the same connections and retrofit all existing quadros, he said he will go back to the r&d team and put that to them. it was nice having a open minded person that is not worried about any quibles you have and is open to any improvments you can suggest. as to the i treated ny self to the sena 10c just got to get my head around the various combinations the three buttons nee to do all the functions .

That's good of him to try and get them to sort the bike out quickly for you. Seems like they are open to suggestions which is nice.

Ah, I thought the Sena was just an intercom. Is it all one unit then, camera with intercom?

Just had the insurance assessment and they have written it of as it would take to long to repair. Some just need to get admirals to order a new one.
