Did Something Fall Of My Bike?

Hi Gents,

See photo attached. Left side of the engine just in front of the faux battery box. What is that hole?

I don't recall seeing it before, so now I'm worried something fell off..

Can some kind soul put my mind at ease? Or not...

Cheerio,

Roy

Now that makes perfect sense. My bike is getting to look older the more I do to it, a veritable 'time machine'...

Cheerio,

Flux capacitor/time machine must be it, as every time I ride I think I'm back in 1985...

Gosh who was that dapper young chap..

Roy
