Brand new 990 adv R ....... Wrecked by girlfriend with 78 miles

Picked up my brand new 990 adv r yesterday at 4pm. Rode it home (46 miles) in 37 weather. Met gf for a ride at 3pm today. Hauled her around a bit and let her take it for a spin (she's a very experienced rider so no worries). Told her not to drop it before I had the opportunity to do so. Um and she did, spectacularly I might. Dropped the front wheel in a deep soft spot and flipped it completely into a ditch. She and bike survived. Such is life.

Did you first run to help her or whip out the camera and take pictures?

Ensured bike was not destroyed then ensured she was not destroyed, then copiously photo'd both. (Would share pics but haven't figured out how yet).

She had to make up for that, big time.

I'd abuse the situation for all kind of freaky things

Good man!!!

Try Smug Mug for pics.

Glad your lady is ok, sorry about your mistress.

It'll be fine- these bikes take a cart-wheeling surprisingly well!

make an account with a site like photobucket.com, then upload the pictures into there and copy the image's URL and then paste it into the photo icon above the text window (the mountain one)

Eek

Ouch!

If the bike gets totalled, hopefully the insurance co. will let you buy it back for like $500 bucks.
