Unfortunate Connie Rider on the Dragon

This isn't one of you daredevils is it?




Pushed it a little too hard on the Dragon and got bitten.

If he knew how to lean into the turn he might not be looking for new mirrors, plastics...etc

I also have to agree with ZG... it's downright stupid not to wear gloves

Not sure he will be buffing anything due to the road rash he more than likely has on his hands.  ::)

I agree. The pictures clearly show the gravity well created by an object that large was just too much to compensate for.
