Title: Not really a drop but one ugly nosejob
Post by: LlamaResistance on August 08, 2018, 06:43:20 pm
Riding in to work in San Francisco yesterday my Connie was gifted with a nose job. The car in front of me had been riding their brakes but not slowing. This particular part of I-80 is rife with bad driving so I was checking on an aggresive driver next to me and when I looked back forward, my 80' of following distance was now 40'. I grabbed all the brake I could but it wasn't enough. Went into the back of the Explorer but managed to keep it upright. Going down here could be a very quick and ugly death. Evidently another driver had cut off someone ahead of the Explorer and started a whole mess of panic braking... I feel like  :-[ for not getting stopped in time. Anyone know good sources for all the mauled tupperware?

Bummer. Glad you didn't drop her.

That's both good and unfortunate.  Check the outer fork tubes for a slight kink immediately below the lower triple clamp.
