    I witnessed something similar once about 20 years ago. A big guy on a GoldWing. Long story short, he ended up taking off the corner of a building. He is alive today, but still has some permanent damage to his body.

    For a short while; my BIL was referred to as "kickstand". He was vaulted crossed a ditch, when the kickstand went down on a custom build.
    he got little sympathy from my sister.

    Rode back from Taos this morning. I showed a low of 36.7 deg south of Tres Ritos about 8:30 MDT. The rest of the ride was great.

    That was good food last night. Looked for you. Did not see your bike at Mora this morning either. Was a nice weekend. Thanks for the heads up. Plan on seeing you Saturday.

    I'll be there, but it might be in the truck if I can't look over my shoulder by Saturday. The mobility in my neck is very limited at the moment and being able to check for traffic/blind spots is still a concern.

    Do we need to rig you up some of those big ol' truck mirrors with the blind spots on your KTM? Teasing ya' know, glad you are progressing. Glad we are going to lunch and not funeral, as it could have been worse.

    That's not a bad idea.......

    I'm glad it's lunch and not a funeral as well. I would miss out on pie!

    I look forward to getting out and visiting with everyone.

    I rode my GSA to Taos and back. My first road trip on it. Pleasantly surprised. Wilth a full faced bucket, I hardly hear the knobbies wailing.

    It's 8:21 am and I'm bored out of my skull at work. Anyone got anything interesting out there? I'm thinking I should make cookies for tomorrow. Maybe oatmeal m&m......
