That's what I gathered...his danglin' toes touched down and freaked him out :dunno

I think the "after" picture bears that out.

He was just trying to get the right side of his bike to match the left.

Soon to be seen on CL:

One CBRGSXYFR10000 For sale. Great condition, low miles. Been down twice, but at low speed. Minimal damage. Asking for $8000 because I want to get back what I paid for it.

Will include jacket, boots, gloves and helmet. These items are slightly used as well. My loss is your gain. Cash talks, bullshit walks. No scammers or e-mail!

Yes they do. I have a pair (why is one pant a "pair"?) and they have that exact bellows-like strip across the front. Mine are a few years old, maybe new ones don't have that???

One pant a "pair" and bra is singular. Go figure.

I have a pair of Icon "Recon" jeans that look exactly like those, with the bellows and everything. I've crash tested them in a fairly high speed lowside and they held up well. I could walk up to you wearing them and you'd never know they'd hit pavement. The problem is the loose material rubs, bad. I had something that looked like rugburn, and burned like crazy is the shower, on the back of my leg from the material sliding.

As an aside, Icon Helmet, Icon Jacket, Icon Jeans. It's good that he's wearing gear, but that's kind of fail in my book.

To me that looks like a piece of aluminum angle with a skateboard truck bolted to it and the other end/side bolted to the sub-frame. Perhaps with these:http://www.chicagohardware.com/catalog/32_36_ubolts.pdf

I guess this comes from the days of frontless chaps. Each leggin' was a chap, two was a pair of chaps. Then some enterprising soul added a codpiece in front, but the dualistic nomenclature stayed. :eek1

Ain't progress wunnerful? :huh

See the gravel on the edge of the roadway in this photo.
He may have got too close to the edge... bingo.

No his line generally would be gravel free. From the fog line to the middle of the lane are the CLEANEST areas in a gravel covered corner as a general rule. Hugging the fog line will keep you upright.

I understand the logic and mostly agree with it but there are far too many four wheeled units cutting the corners that tend to put gravel right near the side of the road.
