Yeah, happened on the dirt going 15 maybe 20 mph.  Hit a big rock with the front in conjunction with a whoop.  Got crossed up around the same time as the tranny deciding to jump back to neutral.  Whacked it open to straighten her out and I only got noise.  Tossed me over, then the right muffler landed on my boot near the ankle.  I was wearing my stormtrooper boots so I didn't feel a thing.  Just a sore shoulder from where I landed and a sad, scraped up bike.

Incidentally, one of the other bikes I was with got a front pinch flat at the same location.  We figured the woods were telling us something, so we changed his tube, dusted ourselves off and headed back home. :oops:

No, but the bars are.  Time for some fancy new aluminum ones! 8)  Tigger-bling.

I'm not getting my hopes too high for the new Tigers.  It would be fantastic to be pleasantly surprised, but I put my chances around 10% on that one. :roll:
