12000 miles came and went so it's time to surrender the bike up to Honda.
As ever, those nice people at Chambers have provided a loan bike and (Hallelujah!) it's not a Deauville. No, it's a five year old CB500 and, actually, it's quite fun.
Which is just as well 'cos they called this afternoon to let me know it wasn't finished today so I can't pick the Pan up till tomorrow.
Sounds like an expensive outing, too. Tyres and pads in addition to the service.
I wonder what other surprises lie in store...
