Ok Guys, today started off a bit exciting. Maybe some of you have heard about a guy who dropped his SVTC or wondered what happens if you do? Well, as of 20 minutes ago I CAN CONFIRM that nothing happens to the bike!
i was getting her set upright to do an oil change and suddenly she went over AWAY from the side I was on. I couldn’t stop it and watched as she rolled over to probably about 50 degrees or so and stopped. Fortunately there was nothing in the way for her to hit, but it seems the black molding under the saddlebags acts as a cushion on the rear and the main heavy bar that the floorboards are mounted to stop it from going over further in the front.
Not too hard to pick up either due to low center of gravity. WAY EASIER than my 91 Venture Royale ever was.
Anyways, not a mark, mar, crack or stressed piece at all. Put your mind at ease if your concerned about any damage from dropping her. Yamaha designed this baby WELL!
Just because the “protection” doesn’t SHOW like a lot of other bikes, does not mean it’s not there!
Now it’s time to give her a bath! ����
