I've had my WR250R about a month and I had my first get-off today while exploring a trail along some rail road tracks. As the saying goes, everything was going along just fine until I ran out of talent. I hit a spot along a slope and one of my tires wandered off the trail or the gravel broke loose. The bike toppled downhill and me with on it. Luckily (and I mean that sarcastically), I didn't fall far because my right leg was pinned between the bike and a log.

After extracting myself and taking pictures, I got the bike upright. It was a struggle since I had to start from below horizontal and I'm glad I didn't have a bigger bike. After getting it up, I walked it back up to the trail while feathering the clutch and then rode out. Nothing is broke, but there's a little swelling on the left side of my shin (still riding in jeans since I can't afford gear).

Since I was alone, I took my own pics:





Glad that's finally out of the way.

Damn, that looks ugly. You jump the tracks and the tree get in the way?

LOL, no. I'm a noob. Just riding along parallel to the tracks when I lost forward momentum next to the woodpile.

Brand new F800GS at the time, and it was a demobike from the BMW dealership that I took out offroading!
