Wounded Pride
« on: August 02, 2015, 11:17:44 pm »
So here is the scenario. I was backing my horse down hill and I cranked the bars over so that my rear end went to the left, as I throttled the bike turned my bars so that I could go right putting the down hill slope to my right I was releasing the clutch WITH PLENTY OF THROTTLE and yes I was in first gear, the engine stalled and of course I couldn't get the clutch in fast enough and she stopped instantly and fell down hill onto the right side. Minor scratches on the right mirror and right lower fairing and some minor scratches on the silencer pipe. THIS SUCKS!!!!!!!! I feel this was an undeserved hit because I really don't think it stalled due to inadequate throttle to clutch release ratio. My Connie is a 2013 with 7,000 miles on it and meticulously maintained. I will post pics tomorrow IF I can stomach it..........

Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.
