Holy schnikees!

Glad to see the guy that took the brunt of it able to walk off. It looked really bad getting folded up the way he did.

that motorcycle rider looked like a total beginner. he had no control on that turn, and when he hit the first bike, he had his feet off the pegs and forward like they were going to stop him.

I really wish we didn't let total beginners get on 650 or 1000cc supersport bikes without some serious training first. yes, I know, that was probably a SV650, not exactly a supersport, but still a pretty serious motorcycle.

I think someone needs to find another hobby instead of motorcycling...


I did my first century today. I'm pretty happy with it, 15mph moving average. The weather's been so crappy this spring I only had less than 200 road miles altogether, so I increased my mileage by over 50%. I was pretty careful about eating and drinking and we made five supported rest stops with snacks and bevereages. I didn't have any problems with cramps , but there was a 15mph wind out of the south that KICKED my ass, I felt really good on the hills early on, but the wind just beat me down . The last 29 mile loop sucked, and on paper it should have been the easiest, but my ass was dragging. Anyway, I've finally got a century under my belt.

Congrats on your first century 2whl-hoop. To finish with no cramps means you did it right.

Great job! Once you do the first one, you realize that you can do more of em. Pretty soon you'll be like K7 and head out to do brevets!

Most brutal day on a bike... ever!

Full report to follow as soon as I get my joints and brain working in unison again.

Just for a teaser; here is a before and after shot of the bike:
