The crash sequence

Let me go back to our run down Old Ore Road. This was a fine dirt road, maybe 30 miles in length. Not too tough on the big bikes but challenging enough that you had to keep your wits about you. Kerry came around a corner to find herself in a patch of sand. She went wide and had to correct.



Swift corrections in the sand are not easy. The reward was a nice lay down of the bike....



and a tumble to the left.



Followed by a swift crawl back to the right.



Nothing was hurt but a bit of pride. Sand makes for nice soft landings. You can see the lines her front and rear tires took in the sand on the left side of the image. That was some soft stuff, no wonder she went down.
