    R1150GS. I had three bikes lined up side by side in the carport and something caused the goldwing to fall over, knocking the 1150 over and the handlebar hit the front fender and knocked the V over. I think it was Zombies!

    I have a set of Shinko 705s awaiting install which look slightly more aggressive than stock ones which is what's on there now.

    Went on a little ride this weekend. 13 riders in our group so not much chance to get photos. They kept us moving pretty well.

    I had the only 300. There was one more Versys and lots of dual sports.
    Great ride. Ready for the rain.

    That is the problem with largest groups no time to stop and smell the rose's but it is occasionally good to have a group ride.

    Hi Hillary,
    Good to see/read you!

    Yes, I avoid large groups whether organized or spontaneous. Half a dozen good friends whose style and skills I'm familiar with is right at the edge of my tolerance.

    Accident? How did I miss that? I'm sorry to hear it. Must have been a doozy to keep you grounded.

    No Ken you didn't miss it I never posted. It happened at the beginning of November 2019 due to me being an absolute idiot I went to a ride to scope out a place to have a picnic and also listen and critique a speech that my friend who is a bioptic rider was going to be giving at a seminar of disability specialists in various fields. Yes I found a great spot but on the way back home I decided to investigate a track I'd spotted many times before well it lead to my downfall (just to set the scene imagine a track in a fairly rough semi mountainous area without any cell phone coverage plus I was on my own) okay I went down the track witch was very gnarly and on doing a low speed u turn I hit a hidden tree root which saw both the bike and I tumble down the embankment with the bike on top of me and a partially dislocated shoulder. Eventually picked myself up drew on my past first aid trauma experience put my shoulder back into place then proceeded to pick the bike up get back on, lift my by now very weak and painful arm onto the bars and ride the 65 kilometres to the local EM department of the hospital. Scans xrays painkillers and 8 hours later I was discharged. Fast forward 11 weeks and shoulder still very painful so this time an ultrasound was performed and discovered completely detached long neck bicep tendon, detached subscapularis tendon and a tear in the bursal surface, plus a bit more stuff not doing it's job. The final outcome is that it cannot be successfully repaired due to my age and the time from the accident to the diagnose had resulted in abnormal shrinkage not allowing it to be stretched back and fastened ggggrrr no riding for who knows how long and when I do get back definitely no riding on my own or down unformed bush tracks. Okay end of epistle. Take care my friend.

    I just don’t know how to like this correctly. You put your shoulder back in and got your bike out of the ditch to ride out. WOW !!! Good job, hope you get back on a bike again!

    I truly feel for you, both the physical pain and the annoyance with yourself. I don't know if you saw my post about my recent encounter with a ditch and pickup truck. Point is that I can relate directly to the consequences of even the slightest bit of inattention. And that it can happen no matter how many years and miles we've been riding.

    That's one of the reasons that I made the decision years ago not to ever do those bits of side exploration alone, no matter how tempting they look. These days I almost never ride alone at all. I am fortunate to have a couple of long time riding buddies (one for over 40 yrs, the other over 50) who have similar interests to mine and about the same availability.

    I really hope you are eventually able to ride again. Glad that you're still hanging around here.

    Thank you I'll be back but not sure when or on what hehe. The shoulder was only partially out so just fill my helmet with rocks and grabbed hold of the chin strap bent over a largest boulder and took the weight of the helmet and slowly twisted the arm inwards yes fairly painful but back into place it went. The whole event was a very big wake up call on many points.
