Mark, glad your OK.

I ride the same bike, now you have me double thinking my plan on putting a K60 on the back.
That's 2x now that they have let go of the road and put you down.

Ok

Radioman, glad to hear you are ok, and looks like the bike will be fixable I hope.

When I was a young bullet proof rider an old rider told me to remember one thing, " When you think you know all there is to know about riding that is when the motorcycle gives you your next lesson". Pretty true words, take care man. I know you liked the scenery in Columbia, but no more repeats, ok.

Just from the pictures it looks like the fork legs are twisted in the triple clamps. IF it's like what I used to do on my dirt bike every 5th ride, have that Beast of a guy you're riding with loosen the triple clamp bolts, put the front wheel in between his legs, grab the handlebars, and twist until straight. Tighten the bolts. That should at least give you the ability to ride with a functioning suspension.

And for Pete's sake (never figured out who "Pete" is) either slow down or put a set of tires on that actually stick. Those things may get 10,000 miles to the set but you've got to be able to ride 10,000 miles to find out.

If there's anything I can do, let me know.

70 mph is a pretty good speed to be going down glad you weren't hurt... I had a friend go down like that, the cause was a couple drips of oil on the apex of a corner...

That 800 seems to be giving more than your share of bad luck , has it played out in your mind that maybe you should of stuck with your 1150...

This thread is gonna get real boring if you end up in hospital and THEN what would I do at night when there's no bike racing on TV

I think most of us have experienced the brain switch off at some point, just glad you came out okay.

Can I just say that "Radioman set's up camp in Ruta 40 and decides not to leave" is nowhere near as interesting as "Radioman rides the world"

Stay safe and keep having the time of your life (both of you).

Hello Kitty is in fine shape and will send photos from the Bolivian Salt Flats (although she might need a bit of a bath).

Isn't this twice the rear end has stepped out on you, perhaps those tires you are running don't match your riding style.

Wow Mark! Glad your ok. As others have said maybe it's time to give some other tires a try. I would hate to see you get hurt or ruin your trip just for the price of new shoes.

I too have put in dues sliding down the road and grinding parts off. Most of the time it has been momentary innatention or lack of respect for the situation. The road Gods bite with blinding speed. Ride with your head not your hand.

Loving the Ride Report. Thanks for taking us along.
