I am sorry to hear about the shoulder, bumps and bruises but please tell me you did not damage that Italian screen. I know what it would cost to replace.

Made a mistake later that day and glanced at the gps for a moment too long. Looked up and was presented with a decommisioned berm in front of me (and couldnt see what was on the other side). Didn't even notice the road going right (turns out it dropped off quickly into deep sand with rain ruts, would have been undoable in anything other than 1st gear). So I laid it down. 60 km/h to a dead stop on my shoulder. Moral of the story? The big twin is tougher than me, it recieved a few minor scratches and I recieved bruised ribs and messed up muscles in my shoulder, chest and back

No worries, other than some more "character" scratches the bike is one piece.

Carbon tanks guards really worked

Some days ago, i've removed the SAS and EPC from my 950 ADV









The work is simple, except removing the front cylinder cover, that was a real pain in the ass



New covers



Byeeeeee...



Some rubber covers with some glue and work is done



And she was ready to go!



Result, a more powerfull 2nd and 3rd gear
It works, and i like it
