Should I take the little side trail?

Nah, last time I tried it, I lost the bike to the downhill side. I have a "better" idea. I'll just push it straight over the drop off.

Uh oh!!! Bad idea!!!!

Too late now!!!! Second "good" idea - throw yourself under the bike
to protect it.

Will your faithful riding partner run to your rescue????

Not just yet. Need another photo or two.

I'm conveniently trapped in position until ample photos are taken. If you're
a skilled lip reader, you can perhaps read my lips under the full face helmet.
Make the bike a 640ADV, add a few trees, put me upside down UNDER the bike, with no one else around and you have my little 'oops.' Took me a good 90min to get the beast out of that farging ditch! Killed the battery and had to kick her many, many times.

...and now I want ANOTHER DS bike?!

I'm a cyclist that rides motos, not a moto rider that rides bicycles.
