Painful to watch but a good reminder to take it easy and ride safely

Considering my splat a couple of weeks ago, I concur, it was painful to watch.
That said, there are a couple of folks that I'm going to ensure watch it in it's entirety.
Painful or not, very educational!
Cheers, Brian

And here's another painful one to watch:



The whole thread is here: Where the F*ck is the bike?

This is a good example of how a Spot unit can save you out in the middle of nowhere.

Come on Spring I need to ride and not deal with anymore BS when it comes to getting the cage summer ready. Had the cage at the dealer for some repair work on the rear axle seals and bearings and they went ahead and completed some unauthorized work on the front, WTF? I had already ordered the part from Rock Auto (now sitting in my garage). Thats issue one, issue two I didn't make it home before my dash warning lights start lighting up. Likely the dealer FUBAR'd an ABS sensor so I have to go back to them to fix their handiwork after I tell them they are eating $400+ in parts and labour they weren't authorized to do.

Where do you go with that. More than a little pissed. Come on Spring!
