Mick, one of the linkages for the rear shock. In Europe there have been (I think) 3 instances where the linkage has broken and caused the rear of the bike to collapse. It hasn't happened in the US or Oz yet, but if it happens at speed the results could be disastrous. Unfortunately I don't have an alternative mode of transport so I'm going to have toride the bike and just hope that it's all good. And yes I do have the Luigi the designer was on drugs exhaust. My mechanic is going to bring me back an Agostini slip on that he has on a bike in the States and put it on for me for $500 (instead of $1100 for a new one). That'll save about 6 kilos and make the rear look much better.
