Rossall - Farkin ell man, when did that happen ? that one would have made me jack it in mate, been a biker for too ong and know the consequences of accidents. Glad you are ok dude. Do we need our heads checkin for insanity ?
Hoofin - Poole.
John E boy - Sounds interesting but too far away to be practical for the next ride. I once had an idea for a push button bar operated one, but no one took it seriously.
JP - Thanks for the info, will be checkin that bar out this afternoon. Kiterich mentioned it to me also.
Thing is, there is no time when these things happen so I'm gonna concentrate at preventative also, like Toby suggested, keeping your hand on the release when launching, pull the bugger if ANYTHING is not feelin right.
I used to have my wichard welded to my spreader bar then tied off to the end of the spreader, I never had a problem in tricky situatuions, gona go bck to that before changin system. leash on left or right back leader so twists dont matter so much.
ok here is the ocean rodeo new bar setup - looks good, only problem is if you let go the bar when riding flat out, accidentaly releasing the kite. you could be miles offshore. worth considering for sure despite this.
