Very nice luggage loops. I might have to check them out for the P200.
And ribs - bummer. Was this on the 640? My kidneys used to take a beating, even with a kidney belt. But this was back in the day in the Mojave desert on an XR500R.
What I like most about the luggage loops is that it provides more support for the top of the floorboards. It keeps the little M6 screw heads from getting pulled into the floorboards. TD-Customs also make the same item without the loops. But the loops can be quite handy at times. Another bonus of the loops is that it keeps your boots (everyone is wearing boots when riding...right?) from rubbing against the paint on the frame tunnel.
Yup, on my 640! And where it happened was down in the Mojave desert too! Absolute amazing scenery and even more amazing riding terrain out there. I do an annual 2 day 450-500 mile dual sport dirtbike ride down there every thanksgiving weekend. I just got some fancy new suspension on my bike and wanted to test it to the max. My front tire found a deep wash (or rather the washout found my front tire) mid-morning on the second day. I got thrown from my bike (bike's 100% ok) and landed on my head and ribs. Luckily my head broke most of my fall (every time I crash and hit my head in that same helmet it always seems to hurt quite a bit). I think I have a separated rib or something, because a rib is still moving around, and 2 weeks later it's still painful to take any sort of deep breaths...let alone anything else as well.
I own Vespas, Lambrettas, and 4 KTMs...small, medium, large, and extra large (all with license plates) and no other 2 wheeled anything else. Ironically I rarely ever ride any of them on the pavement for pleasure (maybe once every year or two?). The only time they see pavement is on the way to the trailhead. Yes, my big KTM 950A has some sort of ungodly top speed, but that just ain't my bag. I get pleasure from riding my Vespas (and Lammys) on the tarmac. Plus I can find parking easier and lane split easier on a scooter as well. Also people smile and wave at me when I'm on a scooter.
A pic from this thanksgiving down in the Mojave desert. And a big thanks to MJRally for transporting my KTM to a suspension shop in San Diego earlier this year!!!
