Tip over bars pay for themselves, again
« on: January 29, 2010, 10:50:00 pm »
I have finally dropped my bike while coming to a stop on loose gravel.  Luckily, I installed the bars last summer and they paid for themselves.  The bike hit the bars and stood upright on them, I was able to get off the bike and lift it upright.  I then made a speedy escape, as this all happend in front of a funeral in the middle of nowhere.    If you don't have tip over bars, buy them.  The are more than worth it.

Dan,  Those tip-over bars are well worth it for sure.  C10 or C14?  Assuming a C10.  What speed did you tip over at?   Less than 5 mph?  Just getting the details for qualifications for a CDA.  Greg H from Mass, Connie Droppers Anonymous Awards Dude  COG# 7010,a Tracey  CDA 120 (2.0)  99 Connie "Herrin Christabelle", 05 Ninja 250

A few days after taking delivery of my brand new '05 Connie, I installed Murphs' Tip Over Bars. Shortly after, being not yet familiar with the new bike, I dropped it at a gas station. No broken mirror or plastic, just light scuffing under the front bar....  Yes, the bars are a good investment !
