Brand new 990 adv R ....... Wrecked by girlfriend with 78 miles

Picked up my brand new 990 adv r yesterday at 4pm. Rode it home (46 miles) in 37 weather. Met gf for a ride at 3pm today. Hauled her around a bit and let her take it for a spin (she's a very experienced rider so no worries). Told her not to drop it before I had the opportunity to do so. Um and she did, spectacularly I might. Dropped the front wheel in a deep soft spot and flipped it completely into a ditch. She and bike survived. Such is life.

Did you first run to help her or whip out the camera and take pictures?

Ensured bike was not destroyed then ensured she was not destroyed, then copiously photo'd both. (Would share pics but haven't figured out how yet).

Good man!!!

Try Smug Mug for pics.

Glad your lady is ok, sorry about your mistress.

It'll be fine- these bikes take a cart-wheeling surprisingly well!

Well, I think we have our answer to that...

She had to make up for that, big time.

I'd abuse the situation for all kind of freaky things

Finally, replaced the part on the bike. Well it's ordered and on the way for delivery later this week. Should have it nursed up and looking sweet by the weekend.

And a little update for anyone who is wondering...

My bruises and scrapes healed up nicely. Would never know I took a spill. Am positive it will not be my last.

As for Tom and I... eh, not so well.

Enjoyed the winter and looking forward to warmer weather. Thanks for the humor. Was fun to read your comments. Ride safe everyone and have a blast!

Plenty of other single riders on ADV that live in PA (and I own a v-strom so drop it all you'd like)
