I did a very nice 270 a few weeks ago on the Magruder...baking along nicely, like you, about 20-30, I come around a corner and there is a truck coming my way. I must have tapped the front brake, but I spun 270 degrees on the crashbar and peanut valve cover. never touched the ground with my 'Stich, saddlebags, bars, or anything else. I must have been going fast enough to spin on the tires. Yikes. two nice holes in the valve cover. I flipped it to the other cylinder and rode on to Poet Creek campground where Mr. JB Weld came out to play. I am going back to the tougher, uglier valve covers too.

PS: bald Metzler Sahara 3 on front, Metzler ME88 on rear.
