When you're traversing a deep rut and need a dab of speed to loft a heavy KLR up and over but, since you've never been in N.E. California before on this particular forest road (for example) you shoot right over an embankment, plop on your side and shatter your tibia... Uhhhh yeah, it happens like that. It's a big world my friend and I have seen bigger men than you eat shit from time to time.
If you break that easy don't ride with Road Rash or Hells Alien.
