Several months back my 85 year old dad called it quits. He low-sided his 2012 HD Dyna in a slow 35 mph curve. Last thing he remembered was watching the front tire near the fog line, then looks up at a para-medic standing above him. Good thing he started wearing a full face instead of the Harley 1/2 shell! Face sheild and chin bar took a beating for him!

1 week in hospital and 6 in assisted living/rehab. Dad had been riding since the late 30's, it was hard to believe it when he said the Dyna was for sale.
His choice alone, no pressure from any body else. "You chose wisely" Dad.
