Not really a drop but one ugly nosejob
« 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?

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