Default Small scale tipover test

Yesterday I went down to the local insurance agent's place.
Took some pictures that the Sun ruined, and then fell over in the grass

I learned 3 things in the duration of these events happening.
(1)Don't shoot photos into the Sun.
(2)The forged crash bars prevent damage at low speeds in the grass.
(3)Even after having multiple surgeries in the last 6 months I can pick this new 765#(dry) beast up all by myself.
