The thread says "dropped bikes" this was more of a slow tumble. The KLR likes the sand like a pig likes mud, get her anywhere near it she jumps in and starts wallowing around

22 miles to pavement on a broken ankle? As Neil Peart likes to say, "Adventures suck while you're having them." Hope everything turned out ok.

The broken ankle adventure worked out fine. I gave him four Advil and a 5 HR Energy drink-He was shaking but rode hard and fast. We unloaded his bike and held it up so he could get on. He made it to Burns and got picked up. Cast is still on...

My first "drop"

Made some rookie mistakes. A little bit too fast, some muddy grooves, some loose and heavy branches and a whole lot of "target fixation". As a result, front wheel called it a day and parked myself 90° in the grass. Only my selfconfidence and ego got a a bit damaged. Mirrors had to be retightend. Just picked it up, good to go. Proofs again these bikes are really "made" for crashing





and yes... picture first :)
