Took a good spill last nite on a MoonDawg Front fender bracket failed. Front end stopped and turned right. Me and the rest of the bike kept going but not real far. It had such great fender mounts I stopped checking them. Big time new guy mistake. I have said it dozens of times and read it hundreds, check your gear, most especially fenders. I face planted but was wearing a helmet. Some good gouges on right palm and left elbow and knee. The worlds biggest blood blister where one would have "love handles" also left side. Bike damage; Solar head light lens (light still works) Paint job is scraped up. A really great seat has road rash. (LOL, I am most upset about the seat) Broken clutch handle. (My last good one) Just reiterating for my self most of all, Helmet and safety checks. That bracket was showing sighns of rusting out for a while. All I had to do was look at it! Thanks to you Folks, I have become fanatical about the helmet thing. I doubt I would be out of the hospital by now (if not worse) with out one.
