Gary's top box falling off was the only thing that slowed him down today.

I got the bike tore apart, one of the bolts striped out and the other one broke off in the frame rail. I guess I will be doing some mods this week.

I'm enjoying your videos Tom.

From the audio portion it sounds like you were having a pretty good time.

One of our own crashed hard this morning. VACommuter went down after blowing a tire at 70mph on his non-hacked KLR on I95. He suffered a open fracture broken big toe. Other than that he tells me he is fine. He was riding ATGATT as always thankfully. Go check your tires fellas, PLEASE. Thanks

Glad to hear it wasn't any worse (but an open fracture is bad enough).

I can only assume it was a tubed tire since it was on the KLR. Let me tell ya something you probably already know, when a tubed tire decides to give out it happens real fast without a lot of warning (1st hand experience).

Keep 'em in good repair and change out the tube with the tire.....

+1

I subscribe to the idea that tubes are cheap insurance, I put a new one on with a new tire. Plus make sure that tube type tires on spoked rims have rim strips, a little strip of rubber to protect the tube from the spoke heads inside.

Insurance = cheap

Life = not replaceable

Glad to hear he is ok!!!!

Don't know the man, but I hope he heals up quick. Was it his shifting toe or his brake toe?
