Hello from Knoxville, where my ride has ended. Bike went down hard. Apparently, it is very possible to drag a pannier with enough lean. Probably was doing 25mph or so. As soon as the aluminum pannier touched I lost traction and low sided. Bike went off the side of the road and rolled down about 200 feet to the bottom of a ravine. I stayed on the pavement and the gear did its job; not a scratch or bruise.

It has full coverage, and is sitting outside a dealership now. I'll know more tomorrow.

I'm in a shitty motel by the dealership tonight. And I'll decide what to do from here tomorrow. I guess there is a greyhound line from here to columbus for under $50.

Look for me in the highlight reel of us129photos.com; he got it all on camera.

Free range chickens,they get you everytime. Glad you came out without injuries Mike. If it's any interest to you,there's a dual sport rental not far from deals gap so your trip wont have to end already. Just a thought.

Although from the pic, the skidplate didn't help. Glad you're ok.
