I still wish I had bought stock in some trailer companies!

RonKZ is right . They dont have a peg feeler on the right side, so you have to watch out for your pannier overhang.,,,,,,,good idea to check this at home with a mate to help tip the bike and check.

Is this normal? Left peg has a big ol' 3/4" peg feeler on it.

Ouch on the wreck... That was MIkef500, I found some postings from him confirming this. Per his postings:

1) Bike is "Obliterated"
2) He is OK, gear saved him

Wow. You really hate to see that happen. Too cliché, but I'm glad he's okay.

Glad he walked away virtually unscathed!

That crash guard system hanging low and wide looks to be the culprit.... shower of sparks from those well before the panniers started to drag.

The animation is more entertaining:

http://s267.photobucket.com/user/Mik...shGIF.gif.html

Here's the scoop:

(OEM only put a peg feeler on the left, because the center stand will drag earlier on the left)

Before this Monday's Dragon trip, I hadn't ridden twisties with my newly added Rumbux and Panniers. Full disclosure, the peg did touch first, but the hard parts followed quickly... like very quickly... as in, if you've got a Rumbux and you're dragging a peg you are a tiny fraction of an inch away from a lowside.

Learn from my mistake, don't drag pegs with a Rumbux!

I blamed the panniers at first, and I do think they dragged at almost the same time, but further inspection of the pictures, and looking at the non-crashing hard-leaning pictures from Killboy, show the Rumbux as the ultimate culprit.

For riding off road, I'll maintain that the Rumbux is the best of the best. But if you ride hard on road as well, the decreased available lean angle is good information to have.

I will say that where the last picture ends was the extent of my fall (without a scratch or bruise), but only the beginning for the bike. It continued tumbling as it rolled about 200 feet down the mountain. Getting it back up was a challenge, but we managed. The dealership quit doing a repair estimate when they passed the $16,000 mark.

I pulled my luggage, got a rental car, and headed the 400 miles home.

All things considered, everything's gone great; from the towing, to the dealership, to insurance.

Unfortunately I won't be able to replace it right away, but I do foresee getting another S10. The new KTM Adventure 1190 looks very nice, but it also looks pricey, and it's got a stupid chain, and the old KTM Adventure 990 can be had as new-old-stock locally for extremely reasonable prices, but the maintenance/chains/tubes all scare me a bit.

As requested, here is my bracket. As you can tell my day job is manufacturing bespoke parts for Moto GP and WSB bikes!











Oh and just for the anti-steering damper types, I have had this damper fitted to any number of my bikes, such as Africa Twin, KTM 640 Adventure, and my 660 Ténére. I really find that it helps when riding off-road especially with luggage and Mrs Tim on the back. Maybe if I were an off-road riding god with over eighty years experience and several world championships under my belt I wouldn't need one, but I'm not and I fully accept that I need all the help I can get! You will notice that all of the bikes that I have previously fitted it to all have 21 inch front wheels so I would expect that the damper will be even more of a help with the 19 inch front wheel on the Super Ténére.

Also glad you are OK Mike! There are so many ways that could've gone worse.

But you were also a smart guy, being ATGATT!

How about posting up photos and descriptions of your gear and how it/you fared?


btw - Back to a KLR for now?

I've got a buffer you can borrow. I think that's all it really needs.


Again, glad the body is fine.

Mike,

Glad you are ok and everything worked out getting home ok. Did you happen to pass through Charlotte NC (I-77) on Friday the 27th around 7:30am? I remember seeing a black Tenere on I-77 south, I was heading up to KY.

Will you have a bike in time for West Virginia this summer!?!?!?!
