Back on May 23rd I was heading north on I 295 in Brunswick, Maine. I was on my KLR650 and going 65 mph when suddenly the bike went into a severe font end wobble. It was only a second or two before I crashed, I had no time to react, but I knew that I was going down and I'll never forget that horrible, helpless feeling. Luckily I don't remember much afterwards, just bits and pieces like getting loaded into an ambulance then being in the Critical Care unit at Maine Medical. Thank God my head, neck and back were okay and no broken bones except my left hand but I had some serious scrapes and bruises and severe bruises on my legs. I also damaged my left shoulder but for now we are doing steroid shots and PT. All my riding gear was pretty much destroyed, especially my helmet, and I would absolutely be dead if I wasn't wearing the helmet. The jacket and pants were Klim Latitude and the helmet was a Shoei Hornet if that matters. Boots were Sidi Adventures, scuffed a bit but totally reusable. Back to the wobble that caused the crash. I have no idea what happened, it just suddenly came on without warning. My bike was a 2014 KLR650 with 3500 miles on it. At 2900 miles I serviced the bike myself, went over the entire machine and also installed Continental TKC 80s. I could have done something wrong when I serviced the bike but I had 600 perfect miles after the service with no hint of wobbles or instability. The day that I crashed was day one of a five day trip through Maine. I was carrying about 20 pounds in each side case and also a 23 pound duffle on the rear rack. I was running 30 psi in the front tire and 38 psi in the rear tire. My first thought was that the front tire suddenly went flat but both tires still inflated after the crash from talking to the tow company. I also thought that balance weights my have come off but a post crash photo seems to show them at least on one side of the front rim. One person guessed that I damaged something last year when I had an off-road crash doing about 25-30 mph. But to tell the truth I do remember the bike being a bit squirrely before the crash. So one theory is that they duffle may have affected handling since this was the first time that I ever carried a duffle. I did bump the rear preload one notch but it may could have been wind drag, not the weight of the duffle. But I can’t be the first person to carry a duffle on a KLR650. After the accident my KLR was taken by a tow company then it was sent to a salvage company after the insurance pay-off. Since I was laid up I never had a chance to see the bike to figure out what happened. I’ll probably never know. Unfortunately it’s two months later, I’m still laid up, bruised and battered but getting better every day. I hit the pavement hard at 65 MPH but thank God I didn’t hit a guard rail or get run over by somebody behind me. I believe that I’m lucky to be alive.
