Full coverage is smart on the big twin
I did think about saving some money on insurance when I paid it off two years ago,
But I gots me at least some smarts, and kept full coverage.
But, apparently not quite enough smarts to avoid this.
And yes, I felt PROUD, that KaTy M made it home after, twisted handlebars, fooked forks and all.

At least it looks like your stuff stayed strapped to the bike. My debris field looked like a plane crash.
Yes, I recalled your story, all night last night.
I bet my tent and sleeping bag stayed on the back of the bike better than Monkeywife did....
The road was shitty and I was aware of it. No moss or road slime "snuck up" on me.
My crash was a very slight concentration mistake on my end. No shit about it.

oldmonkeybut noticed how well everything stayed strapped on back after the crash, Petrolburner.
Rokstraps ROCK, I tell ya !!

And that was one of my first selfish thoughts after,
"Glad it's not Summer, being without for a month would sure suck then"
"got no problem with keeping truly roadless areas as wild....
On the other hand, if it has been logged or mined and roads already exist,,
...then that land should be open for public use" (peterman)
