johnnyhotshoe Posted May 9, 2015 Share Posted May 9, 2015 Funny thing happened today as I was exiting my place to go to work. Riding across the slightly off-camber grass to the driveway at ultra slow feet down pace, my right boot top (SIDI type mid length road boot) got caught in the right footpeg feeler and I couldn't repostion it for balance etc. At first i had no idea what happened till I looked down and saw it. I had to lean the bike to the left so as to assist in releasing it from the boot. Upon reflection, this could have ended somewhat worse than it did and maybe a little more embarrassing if it had happened at a stop light. As with previous bikes owned, I removed these that evening. They easily unscrew from the pegs. I understand that they are my first warning of approaching lean angles that could touch something more unforgiving (centre and side stand) but as extreme lean angles are rare on the street, and track use would absolutely necessitate removal of the centre and side stands, I figure its a fair trade-off from it happening again at a less forgiving place and time. Thoughts anyone? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
