SANCHO's Wing SAVED MY KNEE!!!

NO Joke!!

Roads up here in Northern VA suck and are being ground up and re-surfaced so there are a ton of rocks on the road right now. During my commute I heard a loud strike on the left side of my RG. Upon inspection after returning home I discovered that the object had shattered my left side wing...directly in front of my left kneecap..my knees are already bad from a couple decades of Army Tanks..so I am thankful that I had the wings on there...I will always have a set on my RG....THANKS SANCHO!!!! Now I need a replacement...

You guys find that they really help? Wind that is, not flying objects.
