Earlier this past year, I was two days into a planned three week tour. Just as I was about to stop, pulling into a campsite, my rear tire slipped and I dropped my Kawasaki Concours. No real damage as I was almost stopped and was in some mud. However, as I picked up the bike I tore my right bicep muscle completely loose from the bone, almost 900 miles from home. Getting home was an adventure in itself and the bike is in storage near where the accident happened. I still have to figure out how to get it home. Three months after surgery, I'm still in rehab, just lifting one pound weights. It never even occurred to me that something like that could happen. At my age (57), I was more worried about straining my back. I'm thinking I may just stick with my little Yamaha XT225 (around 260 lbs wet) in the future.
