That would be Bridge Dave. My R111 was assembled with the gear lever in the wrong place so stuck itself in 5th gear within a few miles. The Suzuki M1800r i bought just after was overfilled and oil filled up the air box and then ran onto the rear tyre. They had also damaged the handlebar clamps due to trying to check pry off plastic caps with a chisel. I bought the Thunderbird from Taunton after the first two were faulty at delivery.
The R111 also needed a new petrol tank and mirrors due to poor finish and chrome peeling.
Thank you for your support...
