I took the picture not knowing if I would even see the bike again. The rest of the day and evening was quite scenic but I was in survival mode by that time so took no other pictures.
I did mange to get back to the bike the next day and, with some help, to a carwash and then the highway back to Vegas where I was working.
I really like the bike (04-650), may replace it with the current model.
