Not the sound you want to hear when you have your back turned and closing a gate.

Actually, as I was in full ATGATT mode, I scrubbed the visor off my helmet, shredded a rain suit, and as I found out 250 miles later, broke my collarbone.

Oh yea, it also caught on fire.

Likely it was aggravated by the fact that with the feet on the hiway pegs, the rear brake wasn't handy. And the V-Rod has two disks up front....
