I don't have a picture of any of my drops but I have a video of the most recent one, trying to find the road heading up to Hagerman's Pass to Leadville, CO (glad we didn't)

Kind of an off-road n00b. Stopped on an incline with just the rear brake on a loaded bike... started to slide....

Cow tipping!

Too much speed + heavy bike + bad line choice thru 50 ft of slimy mud = entertaining slow slide and spinout (for my buddies behind me anyway!). Cow is having a nap pointing back from whence we came! Maybe it wanted to go back to the barn given my mistreatment.....

Just my opinion, but the White Rim Trail does not seem an ideal place for multiple offs .

Here's my R75/5 at about the halfway point on Mana Road on the Big Island, near the Keanakolu cabins. I swerved to miss some rocks and wobbled into the berm:

Looks like my Strom. Still haven't dropped it enough since you're still rockin' OEM turn signals and handguards but I do see the foldable shifter!

Not dropped at the moment of the pic, but my friend here had to go fishing to get his DR out of the pond.

Yeah got the Touratech one. Guess why...

And she's now got bark busters although the stock hand guards held up pretty well.

A hidden log under the pine needles launched me into these two trees. Only thing injuried on me was my pride. Bike on the other hand......

Hope this is OK, not a bike, but the damn thing rolled over me. I ended up with the back of my thighs pinned under it laying downhill. The pic we missed!!!



Me walking away after my brother and sister-in-law rolled it up just enough to get my legs out. Brother had to get a pic and left Jackie to hold the ATV! Wasn't as difficult to hold up as it looked, but geez, poor Jackie!

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.
