I used the Eastbound Motowinch for the first time the other day. I fell over turning around on a tight trail: operator error entirely! I attached the strap to end of the handlebar where it meets the Hepco and Becker handguards. Once I remembered to engage the front brake, the winch worked as advertised, except it moved the handlebars so they were crooked. I loosened them, and straightened them back out, but it made me nervous that I was causing damage to the risers or handlebars. I ride a Africa Twin Adventure Sports. Anyone have a similar experience? Any suggestions?
