Cool2 The Crash, P.O.S. Bike, bent wheel





Crash note:

It is hard to describe the rush from the the scenery and speed going WFO in 24th speed. Maybe it was the thin air.

Half ways down the Mountain, as I was braking for a cliff and curve. I had a total equipment failure. From the crash I suffered road rash and a good headache. I had a very good fitting helmet and a soft jacket stuffed in my backpack, both of which softened the road impact. The worst outcome of the accident, was not being able to finish the ride.

The POS Bike company refunded my money, did not charge me for wrecking their equipment, and gave me a free t-shirt that was printed "I survived" on the back

I should of done a better before ride safety check.

Thanks for all the cool photos.Especially the ones from Maui. About 1980 my wife and I flew to Maui. We rented a 1979 Honda CB750K and rode it for 500 miles in 5-days.We went to Hana. Back tehn, the road was totally pot-holed.I was told they left it that way to discourage too many tourists from making the drive. We went back a few years ago to find the pot holes all gone.We stayed a couple of nights at a ranch in Hana, and stayed one night at the old Lahaina Inn (or Whalers Inn?). Last year, we took my mother there with us.She'll be 90 this year, and always wanted to go.Had a darn good time too.
