Eh? Over the bars

I'm finishing up the high fender install tonight,used the parts list from PA
biker(thanks). I have been reading about broken fenders and front wheels being glued to the ground, but nothing about being thrown violently over
the bars. I wish i would have read that little tid bit. After about 126 miles of riding though mud and snow I heard a pop from the fender,that was the right side coming off. I didn't think much about it, I was cold tired and wet and
thinking of a warm fire and drinks. Anyways I hit a straightaway and gassed it
I remember hitting 3 gear then I'm picking myself up off the ground. Holy crap
that will ring your bell. The cross over brake line grabbed the front wheel and
locks it up. So before you ride in the mud change the fender
