A simple case of too much scenery, not enough attention span. I assume the loose rocks you see around the bike were at one point under my tires as I was... I dunno, checking out a cool tree. The tire tracks that seemingly make a hard right just behind the rear tire crack me up.

That had to be a heck of a ride. How fast were you going when the front wheel fell in?

Very sad thread. I've dropped dirt bikes a few times, usually with very little damage, but never a street bike, or even a dual sport bike. I love machines, especially motorcycles, and seeing pictures of crashed ones is almost heartbreaking. For some reason I don't feel so bad for all the sport bikes getting crashed on youtube. Their riders did everything possible to crash, and I don't tend to care much what happens to sport bikes anyway.

Bike was less than a week old, about 70 miles on the clock

I ended up with a badly broken arm and wrist but all pretty well sorted now

I guess it could honestly be said that you were "reborn"!!!

That bike is totalled! And if you ask me, you were extremely lucky, going away with "only" a badly broken arm and wrist!

Damn!!
