Low Speed Off
Well...I was riding to work this morning and at a busy little dog leg intersection in some back streets near my home, a young lass decided to pull out in front of me, needless to say i grabbed a handful of brake, but as it was a little damp I locked up the front wheel and dropped my V on its side.
Luckily just some minor cosmetic damage to the fairing and bent handlebars. (i was in the market for some Protaper's ATV Hi's anyway)
I'm kicking myself however for not getting those H&B engine protection bars, as the have been on my list of Farkles since i bought the V
Its also unfortunate that we don't get the ABS version in Australia
as that could have saved me it this situation I'm sure.
now to tell the wife .......doh
