Typical KLR owner. " I will reuse that tube"
Kidding aside, glad to hear you made it out of that with "minor" injury. A rear blow out happens FAST. It has happened to me twice on a KLR. Luckily both times I felt some thing funny and was able to slow down before the tire completely deflated. For those who have not had the fun of a blowout, It is kind of like whacking the throttle open on a sheet of ice. You have almost no control, and the tail wags back and forth violently.
Excellent job on the play by play and the pictures.
Speedy recovery VAC!
