    Well that sucks, glad you're relatively ok. It catches up to us all sooner or later. The real question is how is the overweight Bavarian gal?

    I don't recall if it's an 1100 or 1150 that a guy at my work has, he took it apart last fall to work on the heads and it's sat ever since. I'm sure the engine is trash now...but the blue/white bodywork etc all looked good. It would make a great parts bike. I bet he would sell it...

    I haven't really checked it over but I think it's not bad
    What I recall was
    Broken blinkers
    Scratched tank
    Bent bars

    It was likely rideable

    I don't think it was hurt much
    The old wolf man bag is ripped up took most of the brunt
    And the crash bars are scratched and bent more so than before

    Glad you're ok Matt. Heal up my friend and get back on as soon as you can. Martha and I are sending healing white light and a six pack of Bud (well no beer, but the rest).

    Sorry to read about your off Matt. Glad you're okay. Bikes can always be fixed. Us, not so easily. Hope you heal quickly.

    Well, hell. I hate to hear that. Hope ya heal up quick.

    When I saw the first pic with the kickstand down (up), I was hoping the bike just fell over and you were yankin' our chain... No such luck.

    Them motorsikkkles is dangerous!

    It occurred to me, you fell far, far short of matching the excitement caused by Manballs and Peg-It-Peg after one of the early river swills!!

    Matt,

    Glad to hear you are relatively, OK.
    Seeing that first picture, your second pick up, all I could think is that would be a beech to get back up right.

    I hate when the 990 ends up, tank down hill from the tires, especially if I have just filled up that 10 gallon tank. :(

    Careful there Matt,

    Or you are going to end up like me.

    First thing have bike with tires pointing up,

    Then you miss place your wallet,

    Watch the cell phone and bike keys or next thing you know you won't be able to ride because of miss place MC keys. And that sucks.

    That was a prototype river swill. It has since been modified extensively.
