Oh no!
So what happens there? The credit card emoji implies you had to pay for the scratched panniers but how did that pan out? You can't really buff them out so did you have to pay for new panniers?

well done on a beautifully written report from you Doug, you're quite an entertaining writer.

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the commentary and reading the pictures - sweet as brew!

Chiming in - great pictures, entertaining stories (most of them true). Big thanks to all my traveling buddies / photographers / poets / beer drinkers and snorers

I'll live on this for a very long time!
