Hard to see but did you derail the chain also?

Time to give CJ a call and order a Warn winch?

If no winch around I hope you had a bunch of strong riding buddies not afraid of water!

Yup the chain came off, I just dropped off the stone step and the front wheel disappeared and over the bars I went
I reckon the stone I dropped off hit the shark fin on the swing arm and pushed the chain off. It was thick snotty mud and it took 4 of us to heave it out!

Any luck with Hurricane or California? (I think they plow Eng/Cin).

Those photos are from yesterday

The road grater was at work on the road down by Silverton. So it was nice and smooth until the pass itself. (where we have decided that my gearing SUCKS for this right now time for a -1+2) Found myself on a bit of a ledge on one of the pass switch backs with not enough grunt, or traction to really get the bike to climb. Its these moments of shear terror thinking you are going over backwards off a 1,000 cliff that keeps motorcycling fun It was also over heating on the climb....so dual fans are also no the list.

Statements like that make me wonder if I should convert my 990 into a 100% road bike! Anybody got a little 250 they want to sell me cheap?
