I rode with them a couple springs back as well - good bunch of ladies and gents and fun to ride with. Stopped by your shop a few times too, Mike!

off-road adventure


Mid corner upshift at full-tilt lean angle kinda upset the bike and he couldn't recover.


his first words: "Did you get that?! LOL


yup.


recovery begins


upsie daisey


since it was lifted almost straight up instead of dragging it up the hill, there wasn't further damage.


Good work

PS--

BTW, the next guy through that corner was really, really smug...
