Wind and damage
« on: 10 February, 2020, 05:41:34 PM »
For all those unfortunate enough to have to keep their pride and joy, outside and under a cover, take care with this wind, it can turn the cover into a sail, and may well drag your bike over, last time it blew a bit, a few unlucky people had their bikes damaged like this.
A newbie to the Biffer, owned a Bird for 19 years, and looking forward to long term ownership of my CBF!!

All sound advice. We spent Saturday night camping out in a farmers field in Snowdonia and had a few bikes blown over and that was without covers on. Fortunately the ground was a mud bath so little damage sustained. Mine went over twice and I count myself lucky to have escaped with just a cracked O/S mirror.

Happy Days
