Paving of US Highway One in Big Coppitt left an unmarked step and the Bonneville went down when I unwittingly changed lanes. $1000 in damage, repaired in two weeks thanks to the late Pure Triumph dealer formerly in Fort Lauderdale. I went down at 45mph, had some help getting the bike back up and rode 20 miles home. Nowadays I prefer to ride with kevlar pants to protect my legs. Happily my mesh jacket and leather gloves worked as intended. My helmet never touched the ground.
