To say that it was really horrible is a true understatement. She was wearing all of her gear with the exception of jeans instead of riding pants. (They were out off her size when I went to buy her some.. I still feal bad for not getting them sooner.) Despite wearing riding boots she managed to break her left ankle. She's doing a lot betting now.

Her GS500 made out ok, just cosmetic damage to the fairings, so I stripped them. Having a hell of a time selling that thing on Craigslist if you know anyone looking for a $1000
Dang! Sorry to hear about your wife's lowside. Glad she made it out OK though.

I may know a guy who would be interested in your GS500. Do you have pics or a link to the CL ad?
