That chain has failed due to incorrect/zero servicing and was almost certainly responsible for your accident.

BUK should be grateful you're around to talk to them about the outcome of the failure. :shock: Getting a solicitor such as White Dalton involved might be a good move.

Oh, and I'd be failing in my duty if I didn't mention it.... use the time away from the bike to tidy the garden up a bit, Chris Image

This is a perfect (if very sad) illustration of why, even if you live next door to the dealer, that you should either ride or trailer the thing to Maz from Scotland.

I'd be wondering if it was the gearbox that had locked up causing the chain to break?
