It could have been much worse, although it still takes effort to look at this as a cup half full incident.
Thule roof rack that grabs by the front fork with the wheel out happened. Note to all, do not use racks like that on forks with no lawyer lips. The cup half full side of the story: I had driven 45 miles out to Valencia, drove even more around town, rode the bike, put it back up, drove across town, and stopped to get some diesel. Puling out of the station I saw the bike coming down in the corner of my sight and reached out to catch it. Only one drop out stayed in the rack. I had a bad feeling about using that rack when we left the house, but was in a hurry and tightened it as well as I could. As bad as it is I am so stoked it did not happen at say, the left turn from Newhall Ranch Rd to McBean, I do not even like to think about that.
