Where did it go?

Went for a ride last night. Cruisin down the highway. I went to flip the highway pegs down......Where did it go. My right peg was gone! I am amazed i did not hear it fall off. That sucked.

If you are lucky you can find it.
One time I lost a sandwich bag with 4 carb jets in it that had blown out of my pocket.

I lost the rear top engine mount nut. you talk about sucking, had to ride 15 miles holding on to the threads of the bolt on the left side of the bike so the bolt wouldn't flop off too, pulled in a hardware store and bought a nut and lockwasher to get me home. its still on there now!

I lost a saddle bag support once. I bought a new set and about a week later I saw somthing shiny on the side of the road... I stopped & it was the support. 2 miles from home. I rode over 100 miles that weekend. You never know!
