Rip Off Britain

Chuck your bike down the road and if you're lucky, it will only be broken fairings and not bones.  However, that can be just as painful as the replacement panels can cost a fortune.

As for decals, they would be around a quid or less a time.    I've just seen a Ymaha decal set on the web for just under $60...
