Does anyone intend to crash their bike? The fact that you never had a tip over in 17 years means little. We're getting older, and with age comes less strength and balance. I'm 59 and have noticed in the last year or two it takes more effort and concentration just pushing my bikes around.but I do not intend to crash my bike, and if I do I doubt it will help much. For any accidental tip-overs, the covers will be enough, and besides that I did not have that happen with any of my bikes ever in 17 years of riding.
