didn't even bend the bars - just misaligned the front a bit, a quick loosen, align, tighten sorted it all out - bike crashes well  :thumleft:

I on the other hand just can't seem to keep the black side down... went mountain bike riding yesterday in Grabouw and went over the bars on a rocky descent... see, my falling is not limited to the motorbike  :deal:

May I suggest you take up a new hobby.

This one is much more suited to you, and you can do it sitting down safely.

When going down a drop, scoot you ass back as far as possible behind your seat, sounds like you have a heavy head :peepwall: :imaposer:

Seriously now, did some rocket scientest tell you to turn the stem around to get a more aggro riding position?  Did it on one of my bikes 'cause the frame was to small, eventually had the leapfrog over the bars down to a fine art, still carry the scars though.
