Bloody Hell Russ, no wonder you dropped it there, that's what i call a steep incline  :005:

You and the bike both seemed ok which is the important thing. Does the CT have a tilt sensor? I dropped my 955 Tiger a couple of times doing U turns on steep cambers and it wouldn't start until the ignition had been turned off and back on again. At least you had plenty of helpers. The second time i dropped the Tiger i did my back in trying to pick it up in a hurry and had to get a paperboy and a jogger to do it for me. Oh the shame  :138:  It's the embarrassment that hurts more than the fall so good on you for posting that clip  :028:

yeah they did touch down, but not then, only when fully loaded even with the suspension wound up, gonna get that checked out coz if it cant be altered I reckon Illl have to take it off.

this was the ride back down the other side, quite impressed with the cam, but I need to edit out the stops !
