    The thread says "dropped bikes" this was more of a slow tumble. The KLR likes the sand like a pig likes mud, get her anywhere near it she jumps in and starts wallowing around:rofl

    22 miles to pavement on a broken ankle? As Neil Peart likes to say, "Adventures suck while you're having them." Hope everything turned out ok.
