Rode down to Marietta and did some backroad/dirt road riding with Ruppster. Had a good time, did about 220 miles total. Back home now on the couch with a beer.

Sorry to hear about the get-off Meef, glad to hear you came away relatively unscathed.

The shifter broke off and punched through the case; no other damage.

I slid on my back, but it was essentially like a big icy slip 'n' slide due to the road being covered in ice, so I'm mostly fine. My right arm is sore but nothing that kept me from riding some more and then going in to work.

The hole in the case is not huge, and once I got home I noted that the oil level was still right at the "min" mark so I'm sure no damage was done internally. A new part is $85, so even if I can't get it welded I'm only looking at $125 for shifter, gasket, and crankcase cover. Not a huge deal.
Good to hear it wasn't any worse.

Shouldn't have said anything, I though Flagger had joined Hair Club for Men.

Good ride today, 370 miles total. Ended up at Hillbilly Hotdogs after grabbing the tag and ran into four other riders, ADV lurkers. Ironically one of them was from my city of Marysville and the others from nearby Delaware. One of them rides a Venom Yellow Tiger and rides with Mikef5000 occasionally, forget his screen name. Had a couple butt pucker moments on the backroads today but a good ride otherwise.

Good to hear your okay Meef!

Glad to hear you didn't scuff yourself up any more than you did, Mark.

No audio ... but Alan's 'advice' will be forever in my memory.

The coat is on my shopping list. How'd it hold up?
