I was riding my vulcan 750 and must of hit oil on the pavement going 27mph. back break locked up and slid sideways 10 feet on the pavement. Bad news: couple scrapes. good news: the floorboards I had made by ccspinner saved my bike. the bike slid on those floorboards which protected the bike and myself be keeping it off of me. I would suggest everyone getting the floorboards. not a scratch one my bike (except the windshield).
