Jez, after you left the lanes got harder (or I got tired-er..) I fell off on a flat grassy lane that was like "Holiday on Ice" :shock: Twisted my bars round and tweaked the Garmin mount! No damage to my custard tarts though :lol:

Jez I'm fine, I found the bruise where my leg bent the Touratwat Garmin bracket, tis bit a small one :D

I've been thinking about your bike setup and why it seemed to be throwing you off every so often.. I noticed you had your bars cranked forwards a lot on the Rox risers, When I was having trouble with my 690 having a mind of it's own and trying to lob me in the hedge Malteser pointed out to me that cranking the bars forwards can make the bike twitchy, sure enough i returned them to a more neutral position and the bike calmed down quite a bit and was more manageable. Just a thought ;) :geek:
I have the Rox risers on my SE but I've set them so they are in line with the angle of the headstock so the relationship with the front wheel and fork geometry is the same.

Great vids.

I feel your pain with the crash. Had a simular crash last month in work off a DZR. Hit the ditch as you did and the handle bar flicked back catching me in the tie and deadening my leg. Gimped for a few days after.
