Two weeks ago I was driving my 2000 K12RS on a nice windy road when my front brakes failed - completely and without warning. My rear brake slowed my speed but I still veered into the woods and down a 15ft drop. I landed the bike upright and thankfully, only bruised my some muscles and my ego. Upon investigation, it looks like the break line coming out of the brake fluid reservoir came loose. Anyone have this experience?

Yes, I had a loose banjo bolt at the reservoir once. It leaked, I tightened it, and life went on. Things do come loose.... brake lines if they are not tightened properly, and especially if when moving/loading/working on the bike you grab them and pull on them.

Glad you're ok!! :clap:
