Regarding the Beemer over the edge- had a friend do something just like that on his drz, but it went a little further down the hill anD he broke his wrist. My brother and I got to play rescue. He was alone and couldn't get his bike up, so my bro took my bike and hauled him out to where I could get him with the car, took him to the hospital, then we went back for the bike. Wasn't as hard a rescue as that one though, we just pushed it 30 or so more feet down the hill to the next switch back and rode it out.

Good memories!

Sadly I wasn't even on the bike when it fell. I was strapping a dry bag down on the rear and it was enough to have the bike fall over.

I swear, after hours of technical riding, no food that day, and blistering heat picking up that bike was one of the most difficult things I have done in awhile, and it's a "light" bike!

Cry

I went down at Scotland, a few thousend miles from home:



See the little knobby in the middle of the road? A completely useless invention. I may have hit it while been in a nice leaning angle. The front wheel lost grip, I got it back, but then I went out of road...



I hit the road hard, but at least the bike did land soft.



I couldn't use the front brake for two days, it nearly ruined the trip.
