Well i got very very lucky today...............went home to go riding me and a friend were out weather was beautiful everything going good. I had been doing some standups and just goofing around some.

Well about a half mile away from home i pull it up in second ride it out for a little while according to my buddy around 95 or so is where i set it back down and boom the left foot peg breaks clean off :eek: :eek: ...................my foot smacked the ground and bounced back up, my friend and i both thought i was going down but i stayed on for the ride. Scary to think i came so close to wrecking. But i lived to ride another day

be safe out there.

and here is to another day of riding the one :beer

It will break regardless if it's tight or not, change the bolt with a grade 8.

Who should be changing the bolt? Just guys that pull stunts or everyone. I'm a twisties rider. So, I don't pop the front end up. Where can I get those bolts?

you know... i think of all the times i've stood on my pegs to stretch, or "adjust" while riding. never even thought about it much!! i guess this means everyone is at risk!! i'm changing my bolts this season.... ASAP!! hmmm.... maybe some rearsets?!?:thumbup
