Re: This time more than my ego got hurt!
Don't feel to bad, your not alone. Upon ending my first long ride on my 00 LTC, I got back on a very overpacked bike on the oppisite side that I had been getting on over the 4300 miles, only to feel her begin to pull to the right.
Not having my Head, Space & Timing in place to think I could stick my foot into the pump, I tried to reach the ground...
10%, 20%, No comming back.... Bang! Crash!
There I was lying stuck underneath the bike looking through 1/2 a windshield that the pump just took out.
1 Rider Buddy, 1 Gas Attendant and 2 Patrons later, I was standing again, and was Rated R for the next 5 minutes.
Had to ride the last hour home looking through a 1/2 windshield, the other 1/2 strapped behind me.
I feel you pain.
(I'll post a pic for ya this week too)
