    Get your feet off the ground the instant it starts to roll. You don't want to catch a foot under that rear crash bar.

    If the bike starts to go over, don’t try to stop it. Just get out of the way.
    My wife had a slow-speed tip over on her 2014 F6B last August. She tried to save it. Foot trapped under rear crash bar. Ankle broken in three places.
    Surgery required pins, screws, and a plate. She’s still not fully recovered.
    Keep Calm ... and Beat to Quarters

    Glad to hear that I'm not he only one that almost lost a boot doing that. Scared the hell out of me.

    F6B's do not like gravel roads. Avoid at all costs.

    I had a problem more so with that; when I had my Victory Vision.

    Always, and I mean ALWAYS watch your rear view mirrors when at a stop.

    ALWAYS.
