plastic site.

Ebay is probably your best bet for finding parts, glad to hear your OK?

Glad you had the leather on... I hate that you had to put it to use. Also, glad to hear you're alright. That was a long way from home.

one last little snippet, the "reason" i crashed was because i came into a turn on a banked road and scraped the little aluminium peg that hangs down off the foot peg, not sure what those are for but they are coming off of my bike. i would have been fine if it weren't for getting thrown off my line from that peg.

I always figured they were there because it would be better to scrape that aluminum peg than have the rubber on the footpeg catch the pavement. Mine are long gone, anyway, replaced with all-steel, cleated pegs.

Main thing is it's good to hear you escaped relatively unharmed.

Those are feelers. Designed to let you know if you're leaning too far over. They're a little conservative though. Glad to hear you're OK, brother. Sorry about the biff.

Good luck with the plastics. I know what you're talking about, but I don't remember. It was a thread a while back. Or eBay.
