I took a bit of a tumble a few days ago where I found myself flying through the air and landing on the back door of the car that stopped suddenly in front of me. It was quite amusing in a black humour kind of way, and I wasn't really injured but am now nursing some very bruised male dangly bits that decided to rearrange my right side mirror mount and hand protector as I flew over the handlebars - ouch! To add psychological impact to the injury, a colleague bought a wrecked bike yesterday as a restoration project that had a fairly severe head on impact. I asked about the large, man-parts shaped dent in the rear of the tank and he said the rider lost one of his nuts in the crash . Not only did that make me cringe big time, but also put a rather large dent in my confidence and I'm now wussing out and thinking of getting some protection for down there. So I'm wondering if anybody (who is willing to talk about it!) has found a good solution to protection for the male sensitive parts? Something that can be comfortably worn for longer rides and doesn't make me look like I'm smuggling parrots. On a more positive note, I learnt that it's actually very easy to stand a sleeping SAT (with full tank of fuel) back up again .
