    If you fall in EXACTLY the right way, surfing the pavement on your stomach with your back arched and fee and knees in the air, it actually can be pretty good protection.

    The day I picked up my KLR from the dealership, (I hauled it home on my open trailer). I tied it down really well and realized that I didn't put the side stand up. I went to the left side of the bike and released the tie down strap, with the right side tie down still tight. Of course there were customers and employees standing out side to watch my brand new bike do a S L O W fall onto its right side......

    Great idea. I think I may have to keep a pair of vicegrips in my tail for just in case (plus, it's a handy tool).

    My shift peg broke and I decided to just drill out the end, run a bolt through and add some plastic spacers over the bolt until I bought a replacement OEM one... Well, I ended up liking the feel of this one better, so I'll just stick with it!

    He was probably on his way to or from scrutineering. Officials need to inspect the helmet and jacket and because of the heat (and because a long and hot briefing session sometimes follows), rather than wearing the full kit most racers favour much lighter clothing.
