Main thing, you weren't seriously injured.
Too far from home to do much good in finding the dogs owners, I was 3 hours from Granville when it happened.

Sucky kind of wreck, in one way, the only stuff covered with my insurance is OEM gear and the total for all of it is right about where my deductible is. The real damage was all the aftermarket crap. Oh well, I didn't want to go on vacation anyway.

Gee Bob, I saw it was you and gave you the ADV salute as you blew past me, you must have missed it...Seriously though, were you pointing, waving, etc.? I know I was a little scared when you ran me down last year trying to get me to pull over. Was trying to figure out how I was going to outrun the 950 on the 690 but figured hey I'm in downtown Granville and this has to be a poser so maybe we have something in common...

OK, MotoGP is supposed to be on SPEED right now, instead it has been pre-empted by the Redneck Racing Network, talking about Billybob and Gomer having it out.RIP, Goober. You ain't missin' nuthin. Turn left, turn left and cry like a baby.

Glad you enjoyed it. I was impressed with my awsomeness planning the whole ride by computer GPS map. Only one turn around.
But we didn't stop when they said road closed. We went around.



When we saw this we stopped but really looked hard to find a way thru.






In the end it was a question of Strom ground clearance and the possibility of a barrier we couldn't get around up ahead.
Byron took off near Tar Hollow are Benly, BDMike and I finnished of a great ride.


I'll get the video up ASAP! I'll also post the track if I can remember how as I bet there are some posers who'd like this route.

I'm going to start a new abbreviation= FYYFP

I got out and rode today. Few hundred miles and was submerged up to the tank at one point, biffed once, several OH SHIT moments, and the bike has been detailed and is back in the garage. I even used a tooth brush in some places to inspect and make sure I didnt snap the freaken frame anywhere. lol



Sorry to hear about your biff, Craig. Hopefully Mrs Swingset wasnt with you today??
