    It had to happen sooner or later Ducati assist on way

    Cleaning the bike yesterday after the Belgian fuck up and noticed some lateral play in the rear sprocket

    By lateral play i mean a couple of mm side to side so to speak

    Checked all the bolts and they are as tight as a Yorkshireman in the pub

    Rang the dealer just to make sure that such play was not a normal thing for a Ducati, single sided swingers etc as the carrier system on the Hyper is not one i have ever had before

    Instructions from the dealer were do not ride it and get it back here ring Ducati assist !

    I have and they were excellent on the phone and promised collection in 60 to 90 minutes

    Its no big deal to me and if it wasn't pissing down i may well have ridden it to the dealers

    It's probably because you didn't get out of third gear !

    I take back everything I said about Ducati assist
    60-90 minutes turned into a little over 6 hours !

    If i had been at the side of the road i would have been in a taxi and the bike would be in a ditch and belonging to Ducati

    It’s a sight you’ll become very familiar with!

    Done more miles in 3 months than many GSs do in a year or more so can't complain too much

    Just the unique way in which beautiful machines are made and just gives it soul

    Poor effort from the AA, if they are the official agent for Ducati assist they could at least have a red trailer they must get plenty of stranded dukes to justify it
