That is a tube? I've seen condoms with thicker rubber!
Don, Shoooooeyyyyy talk about tough luck. Well done. Is that comendable mental fortitude or what?
Your story might support the idea of a "budy system" . When we ride in the "middle-of-no-where" we should always ride with aminimum of two...but on the pavement who would ever have thought? But I suppose that's the point. You just never know what's going to happen or whats going to run out in front of you.
I agree. We have always had a saying in the white water kayak circle. Never let there be less than three. One stays with the injured/ broken bike person and one can go for help. For me I needed to leave the trip because of several circumstances and didn't want to ruin anyone else's trip. Best thing is always being prepared.
ravinerat, Oh jeeeezzzzz you just gotta love your avatar, best one I've seen....how about a poster?
Here ya go Rod - one custom avatar:
Dale, thanks a million for the avatar/pic. Thats a really great pic and that dam washout has lots of fond (well not really) memeories for me.
I still need Jamie's mailing address. If anyone has it or is I touch with him.
Look what I discovered today:
Pretty sure I know exactly where this happened....
Hope you didn't have your tool kit in there!
Ouch!! Time for the Touratech shock. I've been debating on going that route myself...
Yup, it is on order now
Nasty looking. As long as the body held up the bike can be fixed.
Pffft. Just a hole in the plastic fender. The charcoal canister used to be in that compartment. Nothing there now except a spare tube and I don't really care it it gets wet. It can wait until spring between riding seasons.
KTM's falling apart, Kawasaki klr dropping parts like he is leaving a trail of breadcrumbs. So many parts from KLR it is like a "yard sale".
$$$$ Bmw's were solid like a rock and my low dollar old school XR is always SOLID!
It's easy to keep your bike pristine when you're at the back of the pack....
Never at back, always in the middle. The comment "pristine" is actually quite complementary. Thank you Sir.
Seen a few BMW desinigate on easier falls than I had.
I have not seen BmW's disintegrate, they seem pretty tough to me. But who am I to argue with a KTM rider.
Long live the low dollar XR650R!
On one of my trips this summer a rider on a BMW 650 went down in an outside corner on the Ramsey Rd. The damage was substantial including the nose cone ripped off. I was shocked at how much damage there was on the bike. Kind of ended our ride but mostly his injures. Bike was still rideable. Almost bought a XC650 myself. Great bike.
I think I want 950 super enduro for next year's ride.
