Crash it into a split rail fence. It was about 730am and my faceshield fogged up. I popped it open and saw the gravel going right and me goin straight popped the Burm, got a little air, slid sideways, bounced off the fenced and down an embankment.
Got up, shook it off and rode for another 275-300 miles.

Now the bike is home and no harm. Me a partially separated collar bone. Glad it wasn't worse .

Those things do work great when it gets below freezing...

Ouch, Bonehead! Take it easy out there.

Replaced my SE's air filter (among other things) during minor refresh (ie, parts off deep cleaning). Last one wasn't even all that dirty, but good gawd, this bike is ridiculous again. Just nutty, unnecessary power. If you think you might need to replace yours, do it.

PS - I think the knocking I have occasionally heard was neither octane nor timing chain related; it was probably a little too much chain slack. Tightened her up a bit, and sound went away.

PPS - Keep an eye on the Flea Market thread. I'll be selling lots of aftermarket SE stuff soon--and maybe the SE too. Getting married!

Heard the Russian judge gave you a 6.5 for not sticking the dismount.





Glad you're ok, could have been worse.

Too easy to just clean it all up and re-weld it.

All better now.

How can it be fun if there's not at least an outside chance of dying?

Am very curious what failed to let the gps mount adapter separate from your dashboard. I have just ordered the same unit from Touratech along with mount for 276c and don't want to see this happen on the washboards and stuff I ride.

Dropped my front wheel off at Woody's for an A60 1.6 hoop & modified-super lacing.

Pick it up on Thursday.
