    Saturday night Hackymoto experienced a major mechanical when the driveline snapped on his '06 1150 ADV. He was heading back into Tok from Tanacross.
    MotoMama was not riding pillion thank goodness. Team Pterodactyl was in Tok when we got the call and we were able to pick up the rider and what was left of the bike.
    Chad's Revtec gear worked like a champ. Road rash on the right lower arm and on the lower back at the belt line. Finger tip chewed off at about mid fingernail.
    No citation was issued and no other vehicles were involved.
    The trooper told us he was concerned the Chad was in shock because he was so calm and quiet. We had to explain that Hacky was always that way.
    According to Chad the GS suddenly squatted down and then the rear tire locked up. He stayed with the bike while sliding down the hard pack.
    Once they separated the bike continued until it hit a driveway approach, went airborne, summersaulted, and stopped. When the rescue team arrived all the parts and gear were stacked neatly next to the bike.

    This might be a good time to put out the word that a replacement 2006 R1150 GSA is needed. Anybody find one anywhere please post. Say, is that white tank good?

    I've been talking to Orlando BMW, they had a black 2006 GSA that may or may not be sold.

    Scratch that. Just got the call, it sold. I'll continue to look. Well, I can't imagine the tank finding a better home.

    That looks like a monster hickey on the back. You sure he didn't whack that bike with a baseball bat for an excuse?

    Chad, glad you can walk away from this one! Could have turned out a lot different - when Fite told me about it, it took a moment before I figured out Motomama wasn't riding pillion. Lucky for both of you.

    There will be no dibbs on the parts until WE figure out what is going on with Insurance, as well as other issues.
