Zooming in on a map just now, I think it might be route 45? Atchee Rd? Bookcliff? Dragon? Colo 201? Still don't know to this day.

I'm an idiot for trying to get through there in August with little water, no food, 105 degree heat, two bald tires, on an overloaded KLR with a broken starter button. Didn't see a soul for hours.
Thanks for the reply....we were 2 up on a loaded GSA in Capital Reef this summer...looked just like your photo. For about 40 miles all we could think of is "Let's get out of here before this road gets WET"!

Bluhduh Slop, drop and roll...

I was going so slowly, this counts as a drop. Creeping along on some slimey, red, Mozambican clay in a drizzle, I had just successfully negotiated a hairpin turn and was accelerating (if you can call it that) to once again attain my max speed of 20 kph when (like an trained elephant pirouetting) the ass overtook the ears. I was deposited delicately as you like on the roadside while the bike slid, caught, teetered, then rolled down the bank... all so slowly that I remember thinking: maybe I shoulda lowered the tire pressure this morning... alas.


Above: Solid arrows indicate my intended route... hashed arrows indicate actual route. 1) View of hairpin turn 2) View of slidemarks 3) Bike and onlookers 4) swamp thing.

I think your bike just really liked the hairpin and wanted to do it again.

Not my latest but most injuries

How I managed to line it up with the arrow on the road I am not sure. I know it is not an adventure bike but oh well. 3 weeks old 997klms on it
Turned out I hit somebody elses fairing piece mid corner and front washed out so 2 broken feet 1 shoulder and 3 ribs later bring on the adventure bikes

A deceptively wide lake, when approached at speed trying to catch air up a blind hill, followed by a huge splash, can be really funny to see from 100 feet behind. My friend Kris after ditching at 45MPH on an XR80 into a dyed blue pond. I wish I had the pic where the bike was just gone, totally submerged, like where is it?

The rough patch is where he hit when he locked up the front end and went over the bars, just before bouncing into the water. LOL.

I think you are lucky to be alive - sad about the bike also
