    That's a good one. Saw it on another post and borrowed it to demonstrate the gyroscopic effect to a few non-riders.

    I know what you mean, did a ride last year into my first bit of snow & ice and while no where near as much it wasn't a cringe I could feel :p3rry

    I grew up in Sth Australia with an av. 2" of rain per year so the idea of riding in the wet was rather absurd.:-)

    Ouch. That looks expensive. Do you mind sharing how fast you were going to pop off that case?

    Trying to publicly humiliate me?;) I was going about 15-20. That case was a total pain in the ass my entire trip. Well, since I flipped the bike going over a tough pass in the Rockies. I have since gone to Wolfman soft luggage. Less of a risk catching a foot under it and I like the compactness of the Wolfman. I find on washboard roads, very common out west, that the Wolfman is also much more quiet. Embarrassing but funny, I was riding from Bend to Reno and had my hard case fall off, it was the 3rd time in an hour. I was so annoyed I took my helmet off and threw it on the ground causing my face shield to bust off. This was day 1 of a 6 day ride. Ate a lot of bugs that ride.

    No, not at all! I figured you were going faster if a hard case like that fell off. Kudos to you for riding in those conditions. It's not something I think I would try.

    It wasn't intentional. I did not realize that central Oregon would have snow over Memorial Day. They have since improved the mountings on the Touratech hard cases.
