Glad you are fine...with nothing badly bruised but your ego.

This is damn funny: Your Hog is okay, and the four-wheeler Honda needs a repair. Something about that makes me smile.

I seriously hope you are not that silly that you would remotely think that was a tragic enough event to warrant the thought of continueing to staying on your noise maker. I know a fat bob, 63 and he layed his bike down at 65 and walked away pissed that he had to wait for his wrist to heal then even longer to get his bike back.


You should sell it and get a wheel chair, that way you you won't fall over.

interesting post crash observation... fat bob usually delivers 38 MPG for routine round town mileage. filled up today and my mileage for the tank I crashed with was 42 MPG. interesting to see the next tank results.
maybe the laydown re-calibrated my fuel injectors and shit

Love my fat bob. Have had lots of bikes and it's in the top three with my s3 and griso.
