    Uh oh ... Bike damage or just you damage? On the road or offroad?
    Last two x-rays I have had I was told it wasn't broken only to have it still hurting weeks later - demand a second opinion, and find out it was actually broken. If it feels broke after a week or two ... IMHO it likely is.
    There is some wisdom to this ... Jude has 18 years at least till I would take him on something like this though... :lol3

    Now if I could just pick up this to use em on...

    I really wish you would have had a helmet cam that day.....I can only imagine what that might have looked like from your perspective:D...I imagine it was quite fooking hilarious:lol3 .........and thanks, I'll try to be as safe as I can...within reason....being completely safe is unreasonable.:ricky:dllama

    Going to drive my minivan to Barstow Friday. Meeting my buddy who does the ride from Batstow to Vegas. I used to do the ride with him until back injuries and multiple fusions put an end to that for me.He drives down from Denver in his truck with the KTM 250 2 stroke (plated in Colorado) on the rear bumper. We all go to dinner on Friday night. He rides Saturday, I take his truck to Baker and refuel his 2 stroke then I take his truck on to Vegas. Our wives drive to Vegas that day. We all meet my buddy when he gets to the Orleans. We stay at the Golden Nugget and see a couple shows and go out to dinner while we're there, we all drive home Monday.
    I kind of get to participate. I can tell you it is a lot more relaxing than:evil navigating those sandwashes at speed...

    In the dirt hit a large rock with the front which torqued the front wheel and launched me into a superman................. without the bike.:huh Landed on my right shoulder and right hip. Everything seems to be healing up. The bruises look cool and colorful. It is time for a new handle bar and some reshaping of the barkbusters.:wink:

    up in smoke, nice video in the snow. Looks like fun.

    If you had been riding in front of me again you could have "pointed out" the hazard like the black ice and I would have missed it.:lol3 Have fun on the way to Vegas. Try not to "point out" too many hazards to JP along the way.:D

    Have fun in Vegas guys! I have obviously bitched out of this trip, still hoping to make it next year. Need to get some upgrades done to the dual sport for longer distance riding comfort, haha.

    Hey guys,

    My 2006 KLR650 was stolen last Tuesday evening and I was wondering if you could help me out by keeping an eye out on it. It is easily identifiable by the all black paint, (now) red luggage bars, Big Gun exhaust, KLX front fairing and fenders, and TrailTech digital instruments housed in a custom molded dash that reads KLR-X on it.
