    My DR500, back in 1982, enjoying the view of the 12 Apostles on the Great Ocean Road, Vic. Sporting the very latest in soft panniers and Dry Bags. Can't get to that spot now. Too many fences and Japanese tourists.

    Sure. I have one of those old jackets too. Funny how much smaller they can get over time. I think it must be something to do with the type of leather or its exposure to sunlight. Or something like that.:evil

    Surely you could come up with more than "it fell over". :lol3
    I would have said that I swerved to miss a UFO, had it full lock sideways at 180mph, got pitched over the bars, flipped 5 times, then lost control of the thing.......... :deal

    Back to the real world, here's couple more of mine, FWIW.
