    Man this picture makes me cringe, huge rocks and boulders and no skid plate. Look at that poor little vulnerable drain plug.... :eek1

    I haven't dropped my Connie, yet, but I know it is only a matter of time.
    Now, in my early yrs of off road running, that is a different story. But I was young, and didn't have the pressence of mind to get a pic of aformentioned drop.
    I like looking at this thread, not to the anguish of a dropped bike, but to marvel at the droppe standing, and usually un-hurt.
    Maybe it is just me, but I probably won't bounce like I did when i was young, but some of your drops amaze me. :huh
    I hope everyone gets out of these drops unscathed, and I hope the bikes get by with the same minimal damage.
    Keep them coming, and ride safe all.

    I was so happy I made it through the mud bog, but when I climbed the bank on the far side, there was so much crap on the tires it just slid out from under me.
