it happened to me!
« on: April 04, 2014, 01:02:39 am »
well after missing a turn last night,did a quick turn in to a private driveway to turn around which was on a steep hill,got the turn done but when I went to stop  the front tire just kicked out on the ciders on the drive way and I did a split.Only damage I got was a bent left foot peg,and a quarter size scrape on my saddle bag,more embarresed then anything,took 20 minutes or so to take the knee saver off and bang it straight.it feels like I gave birth today from doing a split.So I am officially joined the club!
WOW

Turning on a steep hill is always perilous and I'm glad to hear that both you and Connie got out of it as lightly as you did.  I read some terrible tales here...  :-[

And so it has now become my sad duty to confirm you as the 495th recipient of the uncoveted Connie Droppers Anonymous Award.  You have yet another tale to share around a Rally campfire.  My sincerest condolences!
