Some days you slay the dragon and other days the dragon slays you!
Uhhhhhhh.....is that a crossbreed supertuck.....juswonderin'
Holy fuck! Glad you're OK.
Those are some incredible pics.
I'm sorry to hear about the crash... glad you are okay. I am off Thur / Fri this week, if you need me to come get you I will be happy to, I can drag the bike home if needed, too. It's only about 7 hours interstate.
Glad you're okay Mike! Looking at picture #8 and the sparks in front of the pannier it looks like either the engine guard or centerstand may have touched down prior to the pannier.
Oh and your piece became un-concealed.

Mike, the spot log shows where you went down by a lot of points in the same area. Was it attached to you or the bike?
The bike. you can see it in the pics.

Paging Mike to the "Killboy failure Dragon Fest" thread...
Ratted out by FatherX of all people....
Quick update tonight. Longer update tomorrow.
1) Bike was, best word I can think of, obliterated. They didn't finish a damage estimate, they stopped once they passed the $16,000 mark. Ouch. Not even worth looking into buying it back.
2) the pictures are pretty great. Once combined with some peg dragging pre-crash pics, and the post crash recovery pics, I will have a seriously epic album.
3) good eye jimjim. I noticed as well. I wish it weren't there and obvious like that, but most won't notice. Fwiw, it came out of it unscathed.
4) spot was on the bike, but popped off on the last tumble before the bike went down the mountain; I actually found it on the shoulder of the road. I purposely left it on, and with my helmet, at the crash site, to help me find the location later, since I had to leave to get cell service.
5) with the bike officially totaled, and my current inability to front money or acquire financing for an immediate replacement, I pulled everything worth keeping off the bike (ram mount and seat pad was about it) and said my good bye's. I got a rental car and am now back home.
At least they're ripping on the skid plate and not Mike.
Glad you are ok Mike. I hope the insurance takes care of you. Any thoughts of replacing it with another Tenere?
The ultimate question. I may briefly entertain the idea of the new ktm adventure, but in reality, I loved that tenere, and will most likely be replacing it with another. Not sure when though.
Went on an adventure ride with Alan yesterday, great day for a ride.
Crooksville Dam, it's a must see.
There was some real pretty scenery @ the bridge.
We ended up here.
I was fading fast after dinner and struggling with my zippers. Split off from Alan in Danville, (sorry Alan I should have been clearer about splitting off and heading up 514 through Shreve back home). Needed some ibuprofen and my pillow when I got home, it was well past my bedtime.
Is that Crossroads in Jacktown at the intersection of 13 and 40? If so, that's right up the street from me.
Still so happy you're OK Mike.
I'm in CO for a horse show and Gail (who still calls me Karl) is HERE! He's leaving tomorrow for his Round The World. I got to have dinner and a couple fine beverages with him last night. Any way, long story short, I showed him your dragon pics - the response: "It's amazing how fast you can go from fine to fucked."
Yep. Dinner in Columbus area, be there. Here is the thread.
