That's so cool. I was really hoping when it came off it was not going to fly off into your face causing you to stack.

Yes I did tighten up the foot pegs, wish I had checked the the frame bolts as well. I noticed this morning that I was missing one!

I'm hoping it actually is, I've been going to the gym every week. Looking forward to my gear not fitting me so snuggly.

Hey Paul, once your ass is stopped being numb we gotta get back out and explore some more through Mt Mee and Glasshouse, I'm sure James and Ryan want to get back out there again also.

Damage

Well just looked at the bike from last weekend and all I can say is no wonder I was fighting the bike so much.

Twisted steering column, tie rod ends gone in the front and a flat rear tyre which I think was flat most of the trip cause the bike was a b&$)h to handle. Don't normally struggle that much at all.

Standing up helps enormously.
