Hope I'm still on your list!
Here's some damage to the rightside tank, without protectors, of course. The tank is actually bent in a little. This was from a rocky double-track climb that didn't go so well for me.
Well come to the site! Sorry to hear about and see the damage. The tank protectors can pay for themselves pretty quick.
BigTwin, are you sending us waiting customers PM's or emailing us directly when our turn is up ?
Thanks for all the info Nomiles.
Hey Shamal, sorry to see your damage.
Goss, I'm contacting by whatever means I have. Usually if people sent me their e-mail address I will contact that way.
Well I can't remember what I gave you. Check your PM's and I will give you my info.
Well, I don't know nothing about theory and UV but I do know about testing stuff, especially if it involves crashing .
And one thing I can tell you about BigTwin is that he did a hell of a good job . During the Barstow-Vegas I had 4 "opportunities" to test them including 2 on rocky sections. Here is one example on the left side:
That was didn't do much to them but I had a nastier one (no pic) on the right side that would have done major damages to the tank if I didn't have 6 layers of Carbon-Kevlar to protect them!
Most of the damage is cosmetic except in some spots where one or maybe 2 layers have been damaged. No big deal and I supposed I could buy some epoxy to "glue" the fibers back in place. Cosmetic is not an issue for me on this bike anyway...
Jean-Luc- I admire your will to take pics in the middle of that! Every time it happens to me (on the 650GS, too), I never take photos 'cause the adreneline is pumping to much...
The "game" with friends is to take a pic of each other crashs (if they're not hurt, obviously) before they pick up the bike. Therefore I'm usually very prompt at picking it up but this time, I was by myself, it was maybe my 4th crash and I thought "heck, you're stopped anyway, why not taking a picture!"
