Any info would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Don't be surprised if it doesn't want to shift down, especially to the lowest gears & neutral. Up shifts will be OK & it'll be like you bent a shift fork.
The fix is to clean the silty crud out of the pivot points for the shifter & re-lube it.
Yes, learned the hard way...

It was a very steep and rocky down hill (I'm standing on the down hill side) and I actually aborted the plan and was turning around when I lost my footing. I caught the bike mid fall, but couldn't right it (as I was on the downhill side) so I gently laid it down to readjust my position. It was a pretty incredible feat of strength (think mother lifting car off of child) for my 130 pound self to lift it up when it fell towards the downhill, but I got her up, and inspected to find not a scratch. Very cool!
(Usual checks; fan spins free, shifter untouched, clutch untouched, etc)

Found a new powerline area:


And a thorough inspection upon arriving home revealed not a scratch on the plastic 'skid plate', or the sump, or anything vital, but some major dings in both the header pipes!



Like I said, I will be toning it down till I get a plate (and tires). It's so fun... but no... I shall resist.... I shall resist.... I shall resist.....
You got off easy my friend!! Nice save. We should ride sometime. I'm also in CBUS. PM me sometime you're out and about!

True, it was -22f with a 30-40 kt wind when I was there in February.





It's a beautiful State any time that you have good enough weather to see something.

Another dirty Tenere on the Dalton…





For the record, I saw a lot of other bikes much worse than that. They must have had more fun than me. :(
