Re: pillion peg/exhaust hanger brackets        

ROughly 12 hours into the 2001 IBR, I stood up on the Concours to stretch my legs. The right foot peg bracket broke under my mostly non-significant weight.

Turns out it had weakened, invisibly, as a result of two tip-overs during the previous 12 months. I'd replaced a broken foot rest each time, but the bracket still looked good.

Luckily I was able to find a friend with a non-spare and didn't lose too much time as a result. But it would have been better not to have suffered a break like that in the first place...
