I planted hard 2 weekends ago up in the El Pasos "EP15" broke my right collar bone and will be down for the next month. Let me know if you need any help, but it will be only lefthanded.

I had to ride out about 15 miles back to pavement and then decieded to ride it back to the van total 50+ miles, o'course we had to stop in Randsburg and the general store for a pitcher O beer on the way (what the hell) and then 395 to 20 mule team and a cut thru cal city back to my buddies trailer at the north entrance to Edwards Air Force Base. Thank goodness the forks were twisted in the triples as it made the reach to the throttle a little easier.

I drove myself all the way back to Mission Hospital that Friday night as I won't do the high desert emergency rooms if I can help it.

Charlie

YOU TOO CHARLIE! .... i don't understand what's going on...

heal quickly and take care.

Just saw Xymotic's bike at Uptite Husky. Aaron, I hope you didn't load that thing by yourself. Looks like the bike fared a little better than Aaron. Hopefully, it won't need any parts or we may never see it again.

Heal fast Xymotic! Just out of curiosity...did you have any protective gear? Pressure suit, jacket? Don't think anything could have helped a collarbone, but just wondering. I usually wear a pressure suit like DoRi...but it's hot as hell in the summer.

DJ...how big is that gastank? Guess you don't have to pack extra gas like I do with that big ol' tank.

My bike got taken to San Juan Capistrano. I think the tow company mostly deals with people in trouble with CHP, cuz they were dicks.

Had to pay storage fees for Sat the first day. Sunday, and today even though I was there at like 9:30.

Sat and Sunday they are closed, so If Id even been able to find them I would have had to pay a "After hours fee" I have AAA moto and they are an AAA shop, but they won't take it since the Sheriff called it in.

Anyway, I show up with my arm in a sling, the guy wheels the bike over and walks off. I ask if he can help load it and he says their insurance won't allow it. OK that's fine. Nice of him to only mention it after I asked...

Then he says since I have AAA they could tow it to the Dealer for me for no charge. no way am I putting more money in their pocket, So I took the sling off and rode it up the ramp. First time I've ever ridden a bike up a ramp into a PU. I was no big deal til I hit the wheel chock, stopped and had to pull in the clutch. O.M.F.G!

pop another vicoden and I'm good to go in a few minutes.
I took the bike to George @ Up-Tite Husqvarna. Got the 180 degree opposite cust service from George. He won't let me help at all and unloads it for me.

He seems to think it's OK I'll be amazed if the forks aren't bent but he says since the rim's not taco'd and the tire's not popped he doubts they are bent. he says the bike's gotta be pretty trashed with bent bars and whatnot b4 the shocks usually go, if true... man, Husky gets a lot of respect for me

LOL, Man the coconut telegraph works fast round here. As a matter of fact I did load it myself.

I'm hoping all I busted was the GPS mount (the gps is a bit torqued too, so darn, now I HAVE to get a zumo )

I took him my bike after I crashed. Two months later when I got my cast off I picked it up. I've been riding it for the last three months since then. Every time I see him I ask him if my parts are in yet. When they eventually get here, I will take him back my bike so he can finally fix it.

Maybe he should operate like Renazco Seats: Just put you on a waiting list then when your parts come in you bring him your bike and he fixes it.

I was sort of atgatt
my afx hemet visor tore off on one side.
I was wearing a revit jacket
Thor pants with knee/shin guards and padded shorts
gloves and mx boots,

aside from the cosmetic damage to the lid no damage to the clothes

I don't have a pressure suit or leatt brace but I think I may pick them up.

Seriously though, is that him or is it Husqvarna? I've heard people have a hard time getting parts from Hall's too sometimes
