Whoops Hope "She" is OK after that moment of (fill in this space)

Should have called it Pain to fame.

Once witnesed a fellow rider fall to the ground at traffic lights (unhurt) he later told " did you see her". He simply forgot to put his feet to the ground. doh

Once stopped - put foot down in the usually way ... into a puddle ... it was a lot deeper than usual ... :oops2:

Lesson. When putting foot down be sure of the surface. Avoid banana/s, water where you cannot see the bottom, loose things ...

Note on soft panniers .. if they are packed with hard things like stove, pots, tinned food, tools etc .. then there may be a slight give... but you'll still have an impact.

Too be honest it looks set up to me :thumbdown: Im pretty sure that same mag did a similiar you tube release when they deliberately crashed a GTR1400 in the Alsace . Looking at the way the rider came off the bike , im pretty most people wouldnt be so composed . Also why ride so close to the waters edge on the wrong side of the posts ?
