Good idea to review the gear you wore as well
Thanks CW
I appreciate the feedback about the read - glad you enjoyed. Yes, never too many pics as I found out!.

My wife and I went down on a snow/ice covered country road a couple years ago. Full ATGATT so no injuries. The bike was brand new and I remember seeing it spin a couple of 360's on the head thinking it was going to be toast, but the head guard did it's job (as well as the OEM Panniers.) The bike was still running on its side and after quickly checking with my wife, I ran over and hit the kill switch.

Glad you made it home safely!
Appreciate the concern Kodanja! Yeah, it was great to make it home - it was pretty nerve racking as you well know. Glad you could feel that coming out in the writing. Glad you and your wife had a similar outcome - actually, mine was still running too and had to hit the kill switch.

BTW - just read your BAJA TR - Can you tell where I'm thinking next.. Maybe a week or two solo in late March/April. Great photos!
