Does it count if I have tipover bars?
« on: May 17, 2017, 11:17:00 pm »
Stupidest near-0-speed drop. Coworkers watching me take off from the office, I rock it forward off the centre stand, in gear, feet on the pegs. I've done this a hundred times before, just taking right off...super slick. Well, I guess I was leaning when I was rocking it off, because I dropped it on the left side!

Tipover bars took all the damage, but the left front one definitely bent, along with the highway peg, and has a little more flex than before I think, so I'll have to have a look when I go in for the valves before national this year.
