Oops! How much did he hit you with?
HOLY CRAP! With a Cell Phone?
What phone/ App are you using?
rokklym... Was from a Droid Bionic. Yeah I know, I'm quite impressed with the thing. As long as one doesn't zoom, the images are razor sharp. The lighting, the shadows, the wildfire charred and skeletal trees... all helped.
Somewhere down and to the left of my #2 Spot checkin point
It's an 86 mile dirt track that goes from Escalante, Ut to highway 89 near Big Water.
Today, in Ponta Delgada
Picked this up 3 weeks ago, sweet old thing she is
Did five hundred k's and decided she needed a few changes.
Finished putting her back together Saturday
Sweet as a nut now!
Should be a long and happy relationship!
Looks great. Congrats!

Not my best picture ever...
Chain broke when i was going about 170 km/h :dog
I think i was lucky...
Took a spur of the moment ride through San Diego's backcountry
Got through too
Lucky I had the Gobi floatation devices out back!
Ouch. How many miles was on the chain?
Rivet link fatigue, classic failure mode. Sack the guy who fitted the chain. It's really important to ensure that the link is pressed parallel otherwise the side plates bend slightly (on a micron level) every time the chain goes around. This causes fatigue and the results you see. Nearly always happens on the rivet link due to this. Obviously it could have been a flaw in the material but since it's on the rivet link, this cause is far more likely.
Time to drag your chain tools out from under the seat......right?
