    So were ridin down the road on sunday and life is fine. All of a sudden I hear this crash and sound of metal scraping the road.
    Nothin serious but turns out my rubber floorboard popped out of the backing plate and went sliding down the highway.......
    Like wha's up with that. What a pisser

    Anyway the piece didn't get scratched or damaged even though a car drove over it. Guess it gives me a reason to buy the skull "motif" floorboards.

    If you ride long enough you'll have or at least see damn near any part on a bike fall off or break.
    I had a kickstand spring on a FLHT break on me one time right in the middle of a left hand curve, when i rolled into the right hand curve the stand dug in and sent me high-side over the bars. broke right arm, broke back and road rash everywhere but the little toe on my left foot. Bike hauled home in boxes.
