Don't ferget the disk lock.
« on: August 19, 2008, 08:09:00 pm »
I forgot to take the disk lock off and got less 1 foot before dropping the   bike on the sidewalk in front of my house.  When I picked the bike up,   the left inside break pad and one spring was laying on the ground.   raulb    2003 Connie  COG #6043  AMA #699463    http://www.flickr.com/photos/wolfco  uncelor/sets/72157606836641004/    "It may not be smart or correct, but   it's one of the things that make us   what we are."  --Red Green, "The New   Red Green Show"

Raulb, CDA0281.  You are not the first to have the bike fall over because of a disk lock.  Was the spring from the brake pad or somewhere else?  Not too bad of a drop thank goodness.    Do you use on of those disk lock reminder cables that go from the disklock to the handle bar?  Welcome to the club!  Greg H from Mass, Connie Droppers Anonymous Awards Dude  COG# 7010/7010a Tracey  CDA 120  99 Connie "Herrin Christabelle", 05 Ninja 250

Thanks for the welcome, but I am only new to the website.  I have   been a COGer (COGite?) for about 4 1/2 or 5 years.    I really hate to admit this, but yes, my lock has a bright orange curl   cord and it was attached to the handle bar the whole time.    The spring (or is a clip?) that came off was one of those that holds   the end of the pad (one on each end). Easy fix.  The hardest thing was   remembering to bring my torque wrench home from work.    Thanks for the number, I will wear it . . . uh . . . proudl . . . uh . . . I   will  . . . uh . . . hang on to it.   raulb    2003 Connie  COG #6043  AMA #699463    "It may not be smart or correct, but   it's one of the things that make us   what we are."  --Red Green, "The New   Red Green Show"

Sorry for the confusion. By "Welcome to the club" I meant CDA club.  Happy riding.  Greg H from Mass, Connie Droppers Anonymous Awards Dude  COG# 7010/7010a Tracey  CDA 120  99 Connie "Herrin Christabelle", 05 Ninja 250

Another +1 for Mr. Gravity. He does tend to be right there on top of it whenever a momentary judgment lapse on a Concours occurs.
