Bet you'll be doing a more thorough walkaround of your Bike now eh? There's a lot to be said about a 5 minute pre-ride inspection including wiggling and jiggling bolted on bits. Footpegs, signal lights, Brake and shifter levers, clutch and Brake adjustment, Mirors, side panels, Tire pressures and Brake callipers. If you missed the bolts comming loose, and you check your Bike over regularly, you can't blame the dealership to me. That's just "Passing the Buck", and not taking responsibility for not seeing it before it became an issue. It's not only the Versys that requires checking over before you ride, but, every Bike needs it. Vibrations on the Road with a Bike seem to affect fasteners differently than on a 4 wheel vehicle and things just loosen off! Take care of yourself by taking care of your Bike. I don't think we should be reading this kind of stuff as a dealer's fault.
