    Well, heck! That certainly ruined your day. Looks like you were well enough to gather your stuff. Hope you are feeling ok.

    What kind of boots were you wearing? Seems like a lot of foot damage.

    Rode my friends c14 for a few miles. i am coming from a 2005 fz1.
    anyway, i really really wanted to love the bike.
    coming from a fz1

    1) the wind protection is awesome, i am 6 3 and never had any bike with this kind of protection....love it.
    2) Felt a little heavy in slow speed , but i guess if i ride fast i will be fine.
    3)The most bothersome point . the leg room . i have 34 inseam and coming off the 05 fz1 the leg room was very tight. I do have buell pegs on the fz1 but the transformation was drastice.

    The Buell pegs on Mrs. Iron's C14 were a big improvement.

    Did you pick up on any additional buzzing or vibs since the pegs don't have the rubber pad? I've been considering an alternative peg for a while, but other things are ahead of the list getting ready for the southwest tour.
