Quite agree, but look at the lead rider. Apart from a helmet, he is wearing absolutely no protective clothing. A lightweight pair of trainers, no gloves, bare arms and no face protection, being hit at speed by a large fly or wasp is incredibly painful. That alone can cause loss of concentration and cause a rider to loose control.Let's all hope we can soon get out on the bikes with our mates, just like these two
That's the way to do it !When I go away (hopefully again later this year) I will wear all necessary protective clothing. If it is very warm, and there is no risk of rain I can remove the seperate Gortex liner. My jacket and textile trousers also has appropriate armour in the right places plus also have zips all over that can be opened to allow air to pass through to give ventilation. But there again I am aware I am not invincible so take the risk seriously.
One of my Harleys did that to me some years ago it was days before I could walk properly. I've a feeling all us older bikers have similar stories from the days before electric starting.Had a Daytona try to break my leg about 40 years ago - could barely walk for a couple of hours!
As I said I fitted this kick starter myself they don't come factory fitted anymore so manual adv/retard is not required, all electronic ignitions now no points.Hi, on my 1929 Harley the left grip could retard the ignition to avoid the back-kick when starting ... ---
