Crashed on 99 today...

180 to 99 south bound ramp.

Reason: Being a cheapass on tires running them well beyond what I should have and it bit me. Aaaand maybe a little too heavy on the throttle out of the turn but am gonna do the human thing and blame it on something else.

Damage:
Crash bar needs welding/reinforcing
Destroyed passenger peg
Helmet broke
Jacket torched
Gloves torched
Ruined my nice jeans

Outcome:
Bruised pride
Had to look my wife in the eye and appologize for being a dumbass
I think I have a little scratch on my leg somewhere.

Nice pics as always Justin...

N8 you dying ta git that 5 gallon tank on the husky?

Monti, sorry to hear about the get-off. Sliding while not sitting on the motorcycle riding sucks no matter if pavement or dirt.

Good to hear you are ok Monti. Even better the bike got you outta there before you had to explain yourself to a badged uniform. Passed the dmv ride. Even had a leaky front brake. Currently overhauling it. Few other farkles and mx items being done for dv daze as well. Need to figure out how im going to carry the gear and tent...

My tent is a 4 man if that saves you some space. I get outside spoon though.

Congrats on passing DMV.

What bike you got again? KLR? Pre 2007 style? There is a desert tank for sale at APF if you are looking. Its a monster too.

Mike, I'm glad you're OK. Sliding in the street sucks!
