oh yes

cuz when I crash it's normally pretty spectacular and takes awhile for me to get up, thus giving the people behind me ample opportunity to catch up. And sometimes get the bike off me

Okay, I retract that "Do List" item. I would never stop on my own there to watch and sketch people out, cuz I hate it just as much. However I have never been through there and been able to just keep trucking cuz there is always a roadblock of bikes a few feet from the end, so there really wasn't much of a choice. The first time I ever saw 8teen ride, she came through that sand just fine, then saw the bikes and I don't know what happened, but she ended up dumping it and hitting her head on the ground so hard I felt it in my boots. So, new policy? Move along people or .... ?

If we move along and don't stop to watch others how would we get classic shots like this ????

You're right. That is a Zora classic. When I biffed it on those TN rocks, my helmet visor somehow became perfectly wedged in a crack in the log and I couldn't even lift my head out of it. Did Salty come to my rescue? Nope. He stood there and admired it through his camera lens. Watch out for that guy. You've been warned.

He probably just thought you were checking under your cycle to make sure no insects or small mammals were in danger of being crushed...

fuck no I'll stop at the bottom of that every time! I might even set up a Killboy shooting type zone to make back some gas money

Problem was last year, every time we had to stop, i wasn't sure my bike was gonna start. No worries this year. I hope.

That was my failure. I should have snapped a picture, but he looked pretty pathetic and in pain. That'll teach me for showing compassion...

I woulda understood
that did hurt but not as bad as my Fennimore crash.
Still, a handguard to the side should not leave that big of a mark through a kidney belt
