Obviously that's just my opinion.
I don't think so either. With the swing arm broken it pretty much lay's down on the back tire. I'd have felt a big drop and I didn't. I went 30-40 feet down the road wrestling the steering before I went over. You can see where the rear tire is almost equal to the bash plate. I'd have pretty much been low riding with the bask plate scraping the road.
