    haha, who doesn't like watching Russian car crashes on YouTube. :lol3

    I thought it would be fun (and maybe sad) to have a thread where we can post our own crash pics or results from crashes. ...good, bad & ugly.

    Here are a few of mine. First dirt nap, broken windscreen after a crash in mud/leaves, mud everywhere after a higher speed mud nap (windscreen removed so not damaged that time).

    Anyway... nothing gruesome... just fun stuff.

    Mine has been down a couple of times but taking a picture of it while it was napping was not in my thought process at the time....

    This was during the TAT trip I did a few months ago. Bounced of a rock after a creek crossing and made my way into the runoff ditch. Hit another rock and fell over.

    This thread should be called Street tires on Dirt trails :imaposer

    I have much less naps with the TKC80s than I did on my K60
    i bounced off a cobblestone and had no traction with this damn tire

    I think a naptime pic is a great way to ensure that youre not just jumping up and picking up the bike before assessing all the conditions.

    Haha short leg syndrome. I was waiting for the others to catch up. As they went to move ahead to see down the trail a bit I spun the tire. Went to put my foot down and well couldn't hold her upright in the loose gravel.

    I was so scared of the ravine to my left that when things got even a little hairy I just made sure I dropped the bike to the right.

    I attribute this to high altitude and exhaustion from an earlier pass. I only took a photo because embarrassingly enough I couldn't even pick it up. It may have been the 2 gallons of liquid and miscellaneous items packed high on the tail AND/OR my exhaustion. I normally have no problem picking it up. I was dangerously exhausted. I turned around and took an alternate route after this because I was not smart enough to stop and rest. I needed to keep moving forward.

    I wish I had photos of the touch up handy but I don't. For $10 for a ton of touch up paint it was definitely a good deal. Near exact match. I really was just concerned with rust prevention.

    This was a slight up hill switch back where my rear tire spun on a root and the bike decided to take a quick nap.

    Riding big mud puddles and mud for the first time on a big bike. After going through a few I was getting increasingly more confident and picking up speed. I apparently dropped into a big muddy rut and lost it in this one. Bike ended up at the end of the puddle facing the other direction and I ended up going for a bit of a tumble. Bruises on either side of knee and elbow armor. Lesson learned, go easy when you are not sure what lies under the water. Thankfully my buddy was there to get it on camera.

    I pulled over to assess the depth, and didnt realize there was a shallow ditch just off the shoulder, TIMBER!!




    Ive done before. Feels like an accomplishment just to get home from this
    You see the drop off, panic and grab a handful of front brake.

    The bike is resting on a rock. You would have to get really low to pick it up, not an easy task when its loaded. also, less oxygen up there, dont feel too bad, thats a tough job solo.
    When that happened to me, I pulled the front wheel away from the rock , scrape scrape goes the plastics, but lifting it becomes much easier.

    I've had plenty of those... Never took the time to take pictures. Going rambling in Europe for the next 2-3 weeks so should be lots of opportunities:augie
    Aim to test some parts of the new TET... :rayof(TransEuroTrail)
