Heed crash bars - quick feedback
« on: June 12, 2018, 01:23:19 pm »
I had the Heed bars on my bike, and a couple of weeks ago I hit a cow at about 50, and the bike tumbled and skidded a bunch, ending up with about a 60'slide on one side. Both bars took multiple impacts,a dn either were deflected, or bent in any tangible way. The right side bar is ground flat rom sliding down the pavement, but it didn't move a mm. You can see in the pic that the side cover is missing. That's because the fire dept. wanted to disconnect the battery to avoid fire hazard, so I removed it. It was undamaged.

Cheap, and good.
