Flander's give baby!
When my hand was being crushed and gashed opened between the A-Hole's car, my brake lever and the handle bars, the Flander's risers with their rubber mounts and various pivot points "gave".
I believe that if the bike had the stock ridged mounted bars that did not "give" I would have sustained much worse injuries then I did. Probably be missing some fingers.
So I simply twisted the risers back where they started. The bars are bent a bit also and I need a brake lever but it could have been worse.
Sorry to those that are squeamish...yes that's a hand.
Oh...and thanks to Doctor Frank N. Stein for sewing me up!
Now that's a KNUCKLE BUSTER!
OUCH! That's gonna sting!
