I haven't run a CNC since 2015, so you might be safe.

Huh. Cool. Hope recovery goes well.

Zimmer Biomet is one of my customers as well...they buy heat seal tooling for thermoform trays used in operating rooms.

Almost dropped the Concours14 onto myself trying to get it up on the lift. Pushed it on the lift and it started losing balance, leaning towards me. Had to basically walk towards it while trying to lift it. Did NOT drop it. There's no way I would be able to lift it back up if it fell on the floor from the lift.

There is a special section on the concourse forum for people who drop those bikes. Apparently it is sort of a thing. (glad you didn't drop yours)

They call it Concours Droppers Anonymous or something. You get a number once you drop yours. I'm not on there yet. Any day now..

There used to be classes and videoes on picking up Goldwings.
I bought an 86 Concours in 88 from an ownerbought it as a leftover in 87.
No, I never dropped it. Would hate to have to pick one of those up.
The new ones.
OMG, no.
A friend was trailering one and was hit from behind while pulling off highway.
SUV, trailer, motorcycle, and car that hit them were totaled.
He bought the bike back and repaired it. The mass is substantial.

I put a new air filter in the YZ250, went to do the pre ride check the night before and the air filter had completely delaminated at the seams. Brought it inside and stichted it back together until the new shower up
